Serbian newspaper Blic, quoting Goran Bregovic's manager Raka Maric, states that the composer has written three songs, out of which the country's entry for Oslo will be chosen on February 28th. Ten hopefuls will go through auditions with the aim of selecting the composition which best suits each performer.
During the weekend, a meeting between RTS representatives and Goran Bregovic will be held in order to determine the details on the organization of the casting through which Bregovic will choose the performers. No names have been officially disclosed, but the composer has indicated that he is seeking young artists to take part in the process.
Ten singers would feature at this stage. Several names have been already rumoured, such as Emina Jahovic, Ana Nikolic and Milan Stankovic, who would be RTS' preferences for the 2010 Serbian selection, while Tijana Dapcevic, Aleksandra Radovic and Jelena Tomasevic (2008 Serbian representative) would be the names under Goran Bregovic's consideration.
After the auditions, three performers will be selected by RTS and the composer. They will perform his compositions on February 28th on RTS, according to Goran Bregovic's manager, Raka Maric, although the broadcaster has not confirmed the date yet. The viewers will select the Serbian representative by SMS vote.
