Bosnia and Herzegovina is not returning to the Eurovision Song Contest in 2024 either!
For another year, this Balkan country will not take part in the European competition, continuing the streak of abstention from 2017. Today, the head of the international affairs department of BHRT, Leijla A. Babović, stated that the country would most likely not return to the contest in 2024 as the broadcaster remains under sanctions by the EBU due to unpaid debts.
The country’s last participation was in Eurovision 2016 in Stockholm. The country was represented by Dalal, Deen, Ana Rucner and Jala with the song “Ljubav je”, but the country failed to qualify for the grand final for the first time as it finished 11th in the first semi-final.
