An eventful Beovizija has just finished. Last night, ten acts were announced to have made it to the final. This afternoon it was announced that a mistake was made with the counting of the votes and two more names were added to the list of finalists, those od Ana Nicolic and Ivana Selankov. Ana refused to participate and the eleven acts went on to perform their entries. The winner of the jury vote and the overall winner was Cipela (Shoe), by Marko Kon & Milan Nikolic, followed by OT Band ft Kaja and Etar in third place.

This is the way the final results of the combined jury vote and televote are:

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
