Balkan nation Bosnia Herzegovina took a Eurovision hiatus in 2017 with the national broadcaster citing financial restraints as the reason for pulling out. Fans were hoping that this would be a one year thing but in an announcement this week BHRT revealed that they would not be returning to Eurovision for the 2018 edition.
Bosnian singer Deen, who performed with singer Dalal, rapper Jala and Croatian cellist Ana Rucner at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, will support Joss Stone on her upcoming world tour. The Bosnian entry finished in eleventh in their semi final of Eurovision with their song ‘Ljubav je’ and therefore narrowly missed out on making it to the final.
Bosnia and Herzigovina are pulling out all the stops this year. They have not one, not two, not three but four seasoned musicians coming together for an epic collaboration. Dalal and Deen have the pop vocals covered, Ana Rucner adds some classical music with her cello and rapper Jala with give it an urban flavour as well.
