Marija Serifovic, the Serbian winner of the 52nd Eurovision Song Contest held last 10th and 12th May in Helsinki, landed today at around 1.30 am in Madrid. Spain is the second country Marija visits in her Winner's Tour, after Denmark. TVE's studios in Prado del Rey have hosted a meeting with the Spanish representatives, D'Nash, and several fans and media.
The Spanish public television and radio broadcaster, RTVE, has hosted Marija Serifovic's Spanish stage in her Winner's Tour across Europe. The Serbian young singer, who won the 52nd Eurovision Song Contest with the song Molitva, has starred in several television and radio programmes today.
Marija declared to RTVE that she is still realising that she is the winner of the Contest: "It is a great feeling… but as time goes on, i am getting conscious of my achievement". Also, Marija spoke out about her immediate future plans: "First, I have to end this Tour. Then, another concerts in Belgrade and Europe will be held and, furthermore, I want to record a CD in English".
The Spanish competitors last week in Helsinki, D'Nash, were present as well in this meeting with Marija in Madrid. The four boys, placed 20th in the Final, stated that they are very grateful to all the people that supported them, both in Finland and in Spain. In Marija's opinion, Basty, Javi, Ony and Mikel should have reached a place in the top-5 or top-6. In any case, Serifovic's favourite entries were Koldun's Work your magic and Verka Serduchka's Dancing lasha tumbai.
Marija is leaving Spain today. Now, Sweden has the honour of hosting the 2007 Eurovision winner. Stockholm and Malmö are Marija's next stops.
