Serbia have appeared at the Eurovision song contest seven times, debuting as an independent country in 2007 and winning on it’s first attempt with Marija Šerifović and Molitva. Since then, the other half of their entries have finished in the top ten with Željko Joksimović and Nije Ljubav Stva doing best with a third place.
