Serbia – Željko Joksimović, the Serbian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012, has told our partners at ESC Serbia that we can expect “a lot of surprises from his song”. He didn’t reveal too many details as the song will be made public next month, but he announced that the song will have a special ingredient that will set it apart from other Eurovision entries. “I want to meet the expectations the public has, also when it comes to the lyrics of the song,” he told the website.
He previously had stated that his song would send a message of hope and optimism as the continent is in turmoil over the Euro zone debt crisis. Concerning Eurovision in general he said that it had its ups and downs in terms of quality but that it was a great stage to present yourself, your country and your cultural heritage. “Eurovision can serve as a mirror of your own country. Music is the most universal of all the arts and has the power to communicate a lot of different sentiments”, Joksimović says. His favourite Eurovision entry ever is Norway’s 1995 winner “Nocturne”
