Sanja Vučić has been confirmed as the Serbian act for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.

After a build up of speculation RTS, the Serbian broadcaster, has confirmed that Sanja has indeed been chosen to represent the country in Stockholm.

The song she will be singing is called Goodbye and it will presented in a special 45 minute show on RTS later this week.
The show will air on RTS 1 on Saturday 12 March.

Sanja is a 22-year-old singer from Krušavac. She studied at a music school in her hometown, where she learnt various styles of music from jazz to choir singing.

In 2012, she joined the band ZAA. The group had been established since 2008 and cover a number of different genres from ska, jazz and punk.
The group has toured across the Balkan region, and released one album with Sanja as a member.

Last year, Serbia held a national final on their return to the Eurovision Song Contest.

Bojana Stamenov was the chosen artist to fly to Vienna, and with her song Beauty never lies she finished 10th in the grand final.

Serbia has a strong record in the competition since their debut as a solo nation in the contest. The country has made the top ten in four of their eight participations.
This includes one win, back in 2007, when Marija Šerifović won the contest with the song Molitva.
