Merlin’s Eurovision history

After initially competing at the 1999 contest alongside Béatrice Poulot, Dino Merlin’s best Eurovision result came in 2011 where the Bosniak singer placed 6th in the final of the contest with his song Love in rewind.

Dino brought the second highest placing for the Bosnia and Herzegovina, just behind Hari Mata Mari who finished 3rd in 2006.

Sadly, it was announced in September 2017 that Bosnia and Herzegovina would not be competing in the 2018 contest in Lisbon.
