by deus ex mashina 199 views

Deen, this year's Bosnia-Herzegovina's representative at the Eurovision Song Contest, will sing the song In the disco in Istanbul. Combined vote of an expert jury and TV viewera determined the winning song.

In the disco was a clear favourite with TV viewers as it received 14 015 votes- far more than the 2nd placed Wanted to Make It with 5812. It might be interesting to point out that the jury votes and TV votes were identical

The final results are:
1. In the disco- 10 points (14 015 in televoting)
2. Wanted to make it- 8 points (5812)
3. Sarajevo spava- 6 points
4. Pobjednik- 4 points
5. Trebam te- 2 points

The song In the Disco was written by Vesna Pisarović, who is no stranger to the Eurovision Song Contest herself. She represented the neighbouring Croatia at the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest in Tallinn with Everything I want. She recently released an album and wrote the majority of songs herself. Another samiliar name is the author of the 4th placed Pobjednik– Muamer Fazlić was Bosnia & Herzegovina's first representative at the Eurovision Song Contest after their independce. Under the stage name Fazla he sang Sva bol svijeta in 1993 in Millstreet, Ireland.

Deen still has to win his country a place in the Eurovision Song Contest final. He will try to convince Europe in the qualifying round in Istanbul, taking place on Wednesday 12 May.
