Dino Merlin, who represented Bosnia & Herzegovina back in 1999 together with Beatrice Poulot, will try his luck again next year in Düsseldorf. The song will be presented on February 20th.

The entry will be penned by himself, and it could be one of the songs in his forthcoming album, to be released in 2011. The singer, who has participated in an special show on BHT 1 to reveal the country's Eurovision plans for next year, has explained that "this is the best moment" for him to participate in the contest, since he is preparing his new CD.

Bosnia & Herzegovina's Head of Delegation, Dejan Kukric, left the door open for the public televoting in case the artist cannot choose a song: "If the Bosnian representative could not decide between a couple of songs, we can arrange televoting and let the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina choose a song".

Dino Merlin represented Bosnia & Herzegovina back in 1999 in a duet with Beatrice Poulot. They performed the song Putnici, ending up 7th in Jerusalem that year. He also composed the first ever Bosnian entry, Sva bol svijeta, in 1993.
