The song that will represent Serbia was revealed for the very first time this evening by the Serbian representative for Baku, Zeljiko Joksimovic. Joksimovic sang some of his most famous songs as well his representative song from Eurovision Song Contest 2004 ("Lane Moje") and guest performances of the Serbian representative in 2008- Jelena Tomasevic with "Oro", and Hari Mata Hari with "Lejla" (Bosnia Herzegovina 2006) since the songs were composed by Zeljiko himself. He is a renowned musician and choosing him was a step in the right direction.

The Serbian star is well known for his emotional ballades, full of Balkan spirit and folklore. The song that will represent Serbia in Baku is entitled "Synonym", or in Serbian "Nije ljubav stvar" ("love is not real") is a very emotional and beautiful ballad which is very familiar with Zeljko's style. There has been a lot of debate on what language to perform but most likely it seems that RTS, the broadcaster would like to keep it in Serbian for the event. The Ex-Yugoslavian nation will be competing in the second semi-final alongside Malta who will be represented by Kurt Calleja and his song 'This Is The Night'. Stay tuned to www.escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
