This Saturday, Serbia’s national final Pesma za Evroviziju (PZE) reaches its conclusion, with 16 acts competing to follow in the footsteps of Luke Black and represent the country in Malmö in May. Keep reading to find out who we think are the ones to watch in this grand final!

Teya Dora – ‘Ramonda’

After an impressive and atmospheric performance in the semi final, Teya Dora has certainly earned her spot as one of the ones to watch in PZE 2024. Vocally strong and visually engaging, a song like ‘Ramonda’ could really stand out in a Eurovision year lacking in the ballad department, which could benefit Serbia greatly in the contest. Will we see Teya in Malmö?

Konstrakta – ‘Novo, bolje’

On your first watch of ‘Novo, bolje’ you may wonder why Konstrakta has used a staging similar to her 2022 winner ‘In corpore sano’ – well, the song is said to be all about politicians promising change and that things will improve, but despite it, everything stays the same. The symbolism of the staging, songs message and Konstrakta’s ability to keep viewers hooked throughout the performance has seen her become one of the favourites to win this years contest – will we be seeing her back at Eurovision?

Džordži – ‘Luna Park’

Džordži’s performance of ‘Luna Park’ in his semi final was well-received by viewers both in Serbia and fans watching across Europe, putting him in a great position ahead of the final tonight. He’s one of the outside favourites, but much like Teya, would fit right in with this years ESC lineup. Could Džordži be the 2024 winner of PZE?

Breskvica – ‘Gnezdo orlovo’

Breskvica’s song ‘Gnezdo orlovo’ is this year’s most viewed PZE performance, and is currently sitting at the top of the odds as the favourite to win.

Zorja – “Lik u ogledalu”

Arguably one of the stand out performances from the first semi-final, Zorja’s incredible vocals and powerful stage presence resonated with those watching at home, with many now hoping she’ll be tonight’s winner. There’s room for a ballad just like this in Eurovision 2024 – especially in Serbia’s semi-final. Could Zorja take the PZE crown with “Lik u ogledalu”?

  1. Iva Lorens – “Dom”
  2. Džordži – “Luna park”
  3. Breskvica – “Gnezdo orlovo”
