Eurovision website eurobosnia.com has revealed some details about the Serbio-Montenegrine preselection. It will spin over two evenings. First up is Beovizija (previously labeled as the national final) and then the Evropesma, which is the 'real' national final. Triple Eurovision winner Johnny Logan will be a guest in the final evening.

Twentyfour songs will compete in Evropesma 2004. Twenty performers are already known (four of whom selected by Montenegran broadcaster RTCG), and another four will be added from the line-up of Beovizija.

Some of the biggest names of the Serbian/Montenegran music scene appear in the line-up of the two-evening-long event (Željko Joksimovič, Jelena Karleuša, Ceca Slavković, Leontina and Boris Režak) and also some singers from former Yugoslav republics (Saša Dragaš- moderately succesful career in Slovenia) as well as the last ex-Yugoslav Eurovision participant, Extra Nena.

Serbia and Montenegro's comeback to the Eurovision stage might turn out to be slightly modest; being one of this year's indirect participants they must first pass the qualification round on 12th May before perhaps going off to the big final on 15th.
