Serbia: Extension of the submission deadline for Pesma Evrovizije 2023!

On September 1st, the Serbian public television announced the holding of a national final (Pesma Evrovizije) for the selection of the artist and the song that will represent the country at Eurovision Song Contest 2023.

At the same time, the deadline for submission of participations began, which, while it was scheduled to end on November 15, was extended by almost a month and is expected to end on December 1st.

Like last year, a national final will determine the act that will represent Serbia in Eurovision Song Contest.

At the 2022 contest in Turin, Italy, Serbia was represented by Konstrakta with “In corpore sano”. Serbia finished 5th in the Grand Final scoring a total of 312 points, giving the country its best result at the competition since 2012.

Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun for all the developments regarding Serbia’s participation in Eurovision 2023, in Liverpool!

Switzerland: Internal selection for Eurovision 2023 | Submissions start on August 25th

As the Swiss German speaking national broadcaster (“SRF”) announced today, Switzerland will participate at Eurovision 2023, and its entry will be chosen through an internal selection procedure. As of 12 July 2022, Switzerland is the 21st country which has publicly confirmed its intention to participate in the 2023 contest.

The internal selection committee

Switzerland is once again relying on a panel consisting of 100 people, and an international jury of 20 music professionals. From August 25th to September 8th, songwriters, producers, artists and lyricists are invited to submit their songs for consideration. The Swiss entry for Eurovision 2023 is scheduled to be announced at the beginning of 2023.

The decision of Switzerland not to depart from the previous years’ selection procedure shall not come as a surprise. After the very successful performance of Luca Hänni at ESC 2019 and Gjon’s Tears at ESC 2021, as well as Marius Bear’s final qualification again in Turin, it wouldn’t be wise for the national broadcasters to experiment with alternative selection methods.

What song is the committee looking for?

According to the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest Swiss Regulations, the Swiss entry for Eurovision 2023 should be a “contemporary song that has international appeal and will stand out”. The lyrics should have “a strong, clear and easily understood message”.

The composers and songwriters are also encouraged to submit songs about themes that “reflect current events or those whose content will evoke an emotional reaction or a feeling of recognition” in the Eurovision audience.

What’s your take on Swiss internal selection procedure? Will the new Swiss entry do better than Marius Bear?

Serbia: Konstrakta’s “In corpore sano” remains in Serbian For Eurovision!

Speaking to Blic yesterday after her triumph in Pesma za Evroviziju ’22!, Konstrakta confirmed that her song “In corpore sano” will remain in Serbian for the Eurovision Song Contest. Specifically, she says in the article that the song will remain in Serbian as when it was translated into English the lyrics no longer matched the rhythm of the song.

Konstrakta went on to add that the Serbian team is working to make sure the international audience understands the message of the song, explaining:

Whether it will be through subtitles, whether on those screens, we have to resolve this issue as we go along.

As for the direction of her performance, she is happy with the concept she presented at Pesma za Evroviziju’22:

We will stick to what has been set, it is quite well thought out and I think it works, there will be a change in the details, we are not going to change the concept. It is in our interest to make it look the best it can possibly be, because that is what our union is all about. There is no need to invent hot water.

Serbia: Interview with Boris Subotić from Pesma Za Evroviziju 2022!

After the announcement of his participation in this year’s Serbian national final, Pesma Za Evroviziju 2022, Boris Subotić talks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Konstantinos Thermos.

Boris Subotić is participating in the national final with the song “Vrati mi” (Give me back) and is one of the 36 nominated artists who will compete on 3, 4 and 5 March for the ticket to represent Serbia in Turin in May.

– Boris, it is a great pleasure for us that you accepted our proposal and we thank you for that! First of all we would like to ask you, why Pesma Za Evroviziju? Why Eurovision? And why now? What made you take this decision and is it, perhaps, something you have wanted for a long time?

– Eurovision has been my biggest wish for a long time, so I knew that sooner or later I would apply for the selection of the representative. I waited a long time for this, because I thought I had to grow up enough to be able to take on this project. My main partner, Miloš Marković, suggested that we apply, I agreed and here I am!

– You have participated in several music competitions, including the national final to represent Serbia in Junior Eurovision. Would you say that your previous experience will help you have less stress during the competition?

– Since I was exposed to similar competitions as a child, I think I am ready to meet the pace such a competition requires. As for the stress, I think this time I will have the most!

– We know that you have written “Vrati Mi” yourself. What is the message of your song and what inspired you to write it?

– I want to let the audience find their own meaning and message in the song. The song is a reflection of myself from the first verse to the last. For the first time I am totally presenting myself the way I want to and the way I think I should!

– Since your candidacy was officially announced, what was the best comment you have heard about yourself? And correspondingly, has there been anything you’ve heard that you think is wrong or unfair towards you?

– Being a used to exposure, because of my past experiences, I try not to dwell too much on people’s comments. However, I have to admit that I have received a lot of positive feedback, which makes me incredibly happy!

– Do you have any thoughts about your stage presentation in the national final, and if so, could you share something with us?

– I can’t reveal anything at the moment, but the stage presence will definitely follow the song and me as a performer closely!

– Were you a fan of the contest from before? What’s your favorite entry?

– Considering that I am someone who is not overly involved in sports and competitions, I can say that Eurovision is the only contest that I follow closely every year! My favourite song, apart from my country’s entries, is definitely “Don’t come easy” sung by Isaiah in 2017.

– Have you listened to any of this year’s already selected songs or any of the songs from the other national finals, and if so, which ones did you like the most?

– Honestly, right now my life is just focused on my performance and song, so I can’t say I’ve listened to or watched anything this year, but as soon as I get some free time I’ll definitely listen to everything!

– Is there anything you would like to share with those who read this interview?

– I would like to invite people to listen to ¨Vrati mi¨ and if they like it, even half as much as I do, to be by my side on this journey!

At this point we would like to thank Boris Subotić once again for the interview and wish him all the best!
