Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
Cohesiveness of Package
If they can tame Sanja's aggressive posturing and soften her features, Serbia should make the final, but the first half of semi-final 2 is looking deadly.
As we were all eagerly watching the result in Sweden tonight, Serbia published their song for Eurovision 2016.
A highly animated Sanja Vučić will perform Goodbye in Stockholm. Let’s see if she can decide which arm to wave.
The Winehouse-influenced pop/blues-ballad is probably as far removed from Bojana’s camp disco extravaganza as you’ll get. It’s a competent song and certainly plays to the juries, rather than last year’s televote magnet. The main problem Serbia face is Sanja’s overly passionate performance style, which is like watching Nina Zilli on ecstasy, without implying Nina takes such substances, of course. There’s a fine line between Rona Nishlu type passion and Ann Sophie overconfidence – the latter turns TV viewers in their droves.
If they can tame Sanja’s aggressive posturing and soften her features, Serbia should make the final, but the first half of semi-final 2 is looking deadly, especially is Kaliopi retuning for FYRoM. Serbia has may more allies, but they’ll still need non-Balkan support to secure qualification, so image is key going to Stockholm.
Will Serbia be top Balkan this year?
