One of the most successful countries in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest is definitely Serbia having won on their debut in 2007 with the track Molitva performed by Marija Šerifović but this was followed, by another two top ten achievements, the most recent coming last year at the hands of Željko Joksimović with the song Nije Ljubav Stvar finishing in third place. This year, RTS has decided on hosting an open national final, the first in almost four years which will see fifteen (15) entries competing for the right to represent the Balkan nation at the esteemed competition taking place in Malmö, Sweden.

The broadcaster received a total of one hundred, seventy one (171) submissions and had to narrow them down directly to the performance stage, with a semi-final taking place prior to the final selection round in order to make sure that both the jury and the public will select their entry out of a number of tracks which deserve their respective result. The semi-final has been scheduled for the 2nd March whilst the final will be taking place on the 3rd March. In the final round of the selection, there will be just five (5) acts competing to represent Serbia. Below you could see which entries made it through with their respective songwriters. The performers of the tracks will be revealed within the next couple of days.

  • Moja Svetlosti - Igor Terzija (Filipovic / Savic)
  • Što Prolazim - Dusan Zrnic (Bojic Mrden)
  • Za Tebe Živim - Kristina Savic (Borisavljevic / Savic)
  • Savršen Kraj - Aleksandra Dabic (Maric - Carli)
  • Usne Kadifa - Vanja Gnjapic i 'Kal (Ristic / Milanovic Marika)
  • Tren - Zarko Stepanov (Ivan Ilic)
  • Svetla Pale Se Za Nas - Kesnija Kocetova (Kocetov / Kocetova / Malbasic)
  • Blagoslov - Maja Nikolic (Paelinck / Nikolic)
  • Spas - Dusan Svilar (Durasevic - Mahoni / Savic)
  • Ruža Od Baruta - Ruza od Baruta (Milosavljevic)

  • Magija - Sky'z (Sky Wikluh)
  • Duga U Tvojim Očima - Aleksandra Jankovic (Petrovic)
All of the names of the songwriters could easily be seen as Balkan but nevertheless, one particular songwriter from outside of the region yet to have made the cut is none other than Marc Paelinck who is known in Malta for writing the track What If We for Chiara back in 2009 as well as If I Could Do It All Again sung by Raquela in 2011 respectively. Apart from the Maltese entries in 2009, Marc Paelinck made a name for himself back home having managed to write two entries, one in 2002 entitled Sister performed by Sergio and the Ladies and the other one being in 2004 entitled 1 Life sung by Xandee.
