The Serbian broadcaster, host of the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, will be launching the quest for the successor of winner Marija Serifovic and top ten finalist Jelena Tomasevic in ten days time.

RTS will soon be releasing the details of the 2009 Beovizija, the selection of the Serbian candidate in the Eurovision Song Contest. The same as in past years there will be an open call for songs which will be launched in ten days.

In 2008, Beovizija included one semi final and the final held on consecutive days on 9 and 10 March. Twenty songs competed in the semi final and half of them qualified to the final which was won by Jelena Tomasevic with Oro.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
