Serbia 2018 Beovizija controversy makes new drama

SERBIA – Controversy began in Serbia after the national final. It all started when even the winners Sanja Ilic and Balkanika, announced in the national final line up and emerged as favourites…

One of the strongest reactions came from Danijel Pavlovic, who competed at Beovizija with the song “Ruza sudbine”. He openly attacked Ivana Peters, the composer of Serbia’s 2016 entry and a member of the jury, saying that she deliberately gave him a low score to make sure Balkanika won.

Writing on Facebook he said: “This is what I wrote yesterday night to the singer whose voice I adore, who I have known for years and whose voice I will always adore, for whom I believe that she did not vote true to her conscience and the experience she has, and that she only embarrasses herself with this.” #beovizija #eurovision2018 #eurovision #beozivija2018

New ESCKAZ.com Balkan team member and correspondent Andrew is keen to let our readers know all about Belgrade. Home of the 2008 contest, Andrew took a trip down memory lane in the Sava Centre last night when he attended Beovizija 2018. On the back of this he wanted to share his thoughts on the Capital of Serbia and some local knowledge. Always handy if you ever fancy going to their National final....

We hope you enjoy the read....

Esckaz.com – Belgrade Mini-Guide

Of course, Belgrade held Eurovision in 2008 after Marija Šerifović’s triumph in Helsinki with Molitva. For a lot of Eurovision fans, it remains one of their all-time favourite contests – partly due to the fact that Serbia’s capital city is known for its partying – whatever the day, time or weather. Serbia will be hoping to bring the trophy back home this year with Balkanika’s Nova deca, so in preparation for a possible triumph for the ex-Yu nation, here’s the esckaz.com mini-guide to the Balkan metropolis.

Where to eat
Belgrade’s restaurant scene is the envy of cities five times the size. Here are a few esckaz.com recommendations:
Smokvica – meaning literally “little fig”, this popular restaurant now has seven locations city-wide and fuses Balkan, Western and Oriental cuisine. The food is mouth-watering and the Molerova branch has a beautiful terrace – as well as a small B&B. http://smokvica.rs/srb/
Monument – ideal for quick bites and a superb Monument breakfast (you’ll be amazed what can be concocted with some toast, eggs, cheese and bacon), the food is reasonably priced and very tasty. http://smokvica.rs/srb/
Kafana “?” (Znak pitanja) – this kafana (a Serbian traditional restaurant that resembles a cosy tavern of days of old), which sits opposite the HQ of the Orthodox Church of Serbia was never named due to squabbling and controversy over its near-to-godly location, hence the question mark stylisation. It’s now the oldest of its kind in the city and while a slight tourist trap, it has just as much charm as the main kafana street Skadarlija. Try the pljeskavica with kajmak (a burger-style patty but much tastier, with curdled cheese) and you won’t go wrong (unless you’re a vegetarian of course).

Where to drink and party
We would literally be here for days if we were to list the bars and clubs that would give you a good night out in Belgrade. It’s worth trying out one of the splavovi – the floating clubs and bars that line the Sava and Danube rivers. http://smokvica.rs/srb/ may give you a few ideas to start your search in earnest!
For those of you who love your wine, Serbia’s revitalised industry is ever-growing and has some of the best wines in Europe – Aleksandrović and Kovačević are among the high-end. Rakija, effectively moonshine or homemade brandy, is a national institution (and almost obligatory) as well as being very potent – up to 60% alcohol content at times. Warming on winter days, a good one is supposed to leave you hangover-free in the morning – provided you don’t drink bucketloads of the stuff.

What to see and do
Belgrade is lined with parks and open spaces, as well as being a living museum to its history in the last century or so. Here’s just a snippet of what it has to offer the sightseer:
Relaxation and Parks – the Kalemegdan fortress and park complex, which overlooks the confluence of the Sava and Danube rivers has lovely views and is great to spend a few hours ambling around in. Ada Cigalija, also known as ‘the Sea of Belgrade’, is a beach, bar, restaurant and water sports complex, and there are numerous parks throughout the city which are great for people watching – Tašmajdan being a prime example.
Churches – they’re in abundance here: the beautiful St Mark’s in Tašmajdan Park; St Sava’s – the second largest Orthodox Cathedral in the world; and the picturesque, ivy-clad Ružica Church within Kalemegdan
Yugoslav history and museums – there are themed bars and restaurants dedicated to the former SFRJ and Tito’s Grave – the House of Flowers is serene and surprisingly understated. In fact, just walking around the city exposes you to many a communist architectural edifice. Museums include the interactive and fascinating Nikola Tesla Museum and the War Museum.
Zemun – officially now within the Belgrade metropolitan area, but a city in its own right and one never conquered by the Ottomans, former Austro-Hungarian Zemun has delightful fish restaurants and a lovely promenade on the Danube. It’s worth visiting Gardoš Tower for breathtaking panoramic views of the whole city.
Belgrade Arena – now the bank-sponsored Kombank Arena, located in Novi Beograd (the ‘new’ communist-built city of the 1950s onwards) hosted Eurovision in 2008, so is of course, obligatory on any city sightseeing tour.

If you’d like help planning a trip to Belgrade or wider Serbia, wine tours, or any of the Balkan states, esckaz.com suggests www.balkanholidays.rs, who will provide custom-made itineraries.

Andrew also reviewed the show, his musings are here;

Sanja Ilić i Balkanika - Serbia Eurovision 2018 will represent Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon with the song Nova deca (New Children) after sweeping to victory at Beovizija late on Tuesday night.
Nova deca came out top of a strong field of 17 shortlisted songs that originated from an open call made by the Serbian national broadcaster RTS towards the end of last year. The song was awarded top marks from both the jury and public votes, with Saška Janks’ Pesma za tebe in second place. Saška’s powerful vocal and impressive performance took her close, although she had to settle for the runners up position after coming second to the eventual winners in both polls.
The supergroup, formed in 1998 and headed by renowned Serbian composer and songwriter Sanja Ilić, merges powerful, enchanting vocals, drums and traditional Balkan sounds in the song and their show-stopping performance may see it become one of the early frontrunners in the betting for the sought-after Eurovision crown.
The band’s Mladen Lukić explained the meaning of the song before going on stage, saying that it is about “…children…of the future… who don’t think about politics, or race or colour.” He added that the song promotes the idea of a “better tomorrow”. Aleksandar Radulović, one of the band’s percussionists, described them as the “news kids on the block” and echoed these sentiments. “We play with love and soul”. He admitted he was hoping for nice weather in Lisbon, and given his unique eye-wear, which may be about to start a new trend in Eurovision land, he is already prepared for sunshine.
This year’s Beovizija took place at the Sava Centar and included performances from some of Serbia’s most popular previous representatives including Jelena Tomasevic (2008), Milan Stankovic (2010), Moje 3 (2013), Bojana Stamenov (2015), Sanja Vučić (2016) and last year’s entrant, Tijana Bogicevic. Additionally, Knez and Sergej Ćetković performed their respective entries for Montenegro.
Balkanika will perform Nova deca in the second semi-final in the Portuguese capital on 10th May and will be hoping to better Tijana Bogićević’s eleventh-placed semi-final finish in Kiev last year with her song In Too Deep.

Some have been worried how Iriao from Georgia needs to ditch one of their band members since only six persons are allowed on stage. I just wanted to point out that Sanja Ilić & Balkanika from Serbia has originally nine members, and what’s more, they look like a cool cast of a fantasy film.

Balkan beat sounds to Lisbon

Serbia sends Balkanika & Sanja Ilic Sanja Ilić & Balkanika - Official

It was expected after the victory of Salvador Sobral last year, that this year a lot of countries would return more to their national roots. It is a kind of unwritten law of Eurovision, that countries kind of copy the kind of song of the former winner. Actually specially the Balkan was till 2-3 years always the countries still sending traditional sounds to Eurovision. In the last years it switched and for example in 2017 a lot of Balkan countries started to send English pop songs, e.g. FYR Macedonia. Maybe due to the bad results or maybe the victory of Portugal last year re-inspired the Balkan countries to return to the kind of songs they sent for decades.
