Songwriter Aleksandra Kovač who had been selected with the song C'mon boy decided to withdraw the song from the competition after an unsuccesful agreement with the potential performer, Miss Selma Bajrami and the lack of time to find another singer. The manager of Miss Bajrami confirmed to PBS BiH that she is not able to match her personal obligations with the terms of BH Eurosong 2005 and expressed her doubts about the contract she was proposed, which is unique for each performer at this year's national final in Bosnia & Herzegovina.
The final of BH Eurosong 2005 will take place on 6th March 2005. 50% jury and 50% televoting will be used to select the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest representative for Bosnia & Herzegovina.
