Finally I can say that I’m different, and it’s okay

Bojana decided to switch up her performance from powerful Serbian to a sassy translation about beauty never giving a damn. She knows how to command a live crowd of Eurovision fans, but whether TV audiences will be patient enough to wait for the beat to drop is debatable: I hope so, the feel-good pay-off is well worth it. Serbia’s back from its 2014 gap year with an exciting entry that – if it makes it to the final – should rack up a decent score against the slew of female soloists harping on about love.

All Kinds of Everything: interview with Bojana Stamenov


Who is your favourite Eurovision act of all time?

I really like Loreen and her song. Her voice and energy were something great and unique at that time.

Babushki4 vs. Lordi4

WINNER: Buranovskiye Babushki

They were something different that year and they were so cute. It takes a lot of courage to go on a stage in their years and to represent such a big country.

ABBA4 vs. Celine4

WINNER: ABBA

Definitely, because I’m their fan from childhood.

What does the general public in Serbia think of Eurovision?

People in my country love ESC and they are very interested in everything that is going on. I can tell that they are very well informed.

Do you have any rituals before going on stage?

I don’t have any special rituals, just trying to stay positive and give my best.

How do you normally watch the Eurovision Song Contest?

I normally watch it with my family. That is a tradition in our house. Because of that it’s going to be special moment for me to go on a stage in Vienna.

 

 

Hello Europe, it’s Camilla calling! Here are the points from the House of Apcar vote.

Serbia: 8 points.

According to my own personal preference, I have awarded points to all 40 acts entering this year’s contest, with four countries receiving each set of points used by the EBU (12, 10, and 8-1).
