Despite not having an entrant in this year’s song contest, the Serbian broadcaster RTS will still air all three shows live on its channels.
– This year we don’t have a representative in Eurovision due to financial troubles but we strongly believe that we will be able to participate again next year. Our wish is also to organize a pre-selection like Beosong in 2013, Duška Vučinić comments from RTS.
Serbia first entered Eurovision as an independent country in 2007 when they also won it. Earlier they had competed as part of Yugoslavia and in 2004, 2005 together with Montenegro. This year the broadcaster announced their absence in November blaming their tough financial situation.
