Serbia is set to select their next Eurovision representative this month on the 20 February, in which 17 acts will be competing to becoming the national final winner.

RTS, the Serbian national broadcaster, has today confirmed that the country’s returning Eurovision national final – Beovizija 2018 – will take place in the second half of this month on the 20 February.

This is the first time RTS has opted to select their act through the Serbian national final in 9 years, in which a total of 17 acts will be competing for the representative-right in Lisbon.

Ahead of Serbia’s national final on the 20 February, a running order draw is to be held on the 2 February from 17:45 local time on RTS 1, set to determine where each artist will perform in the Beovizija final next month.
