Bosnia & Herzegovina - 2012

Moving on to the second song I will look at, I randomly selected Bosnia & Herzegovina's 2012 entry.

And this year? Maya Sar and her song Korake Ti Znam.

Maya Sar is fairly well known in Bosnia & Herzegovina having a few hits over the last couple of years. Eurovision fanatics may remember her backing vocals on Dino Merlin's Love in Rewind from last years contest, which finished an impressive 6th. Whether the song was good or not, Dino was always going to attract lots of votes from neighbouring countries with his name. Even though Maya has name recognition in neighbouring countries, she may not get the same attraction in points as the widely famous Dino. However, we can probably rely on Serbia to give Maya at least 12! But to the song though! In my opinion, Korake Ti Znam has a similar feel to say Love Will Set You Free; it is soothing, classy and packed with emotion. The song is nice and enjoyable, but you can't really describe it with anything stronger than "nice". Will Bosnia & Herzegovina win in Baku? Probably not. The song certainly will get into the final, and with a good draw, will finish in the top half of the table, but not a Eurovision winner.

Song rating: 6/10
Liklihood to win: 3/10

Current odds: 60-1      (
