Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest
It was 2007 when we first saw, Serbia, alone on the Eurovision scoreboard, and their debut, placed first with Marija Šerifović and Molitva.
Competing for the host nation, Jelena Tomašević feat. Bora Dugić did very well again, when they finished in 6th position.
Despite the great start, they failed to qualify in 2009, and also in 2013 and 2017.
Recently Serbia have started to slip down the scoreboard, with their last Top 3 placing being in 2012, with Nije ljubav stvar by Željko Joksimović.
