21:25 – Third candidate is lovely Bojana Stamenov with the song Ceo svet je moj (The world is mine). Bojana, who is huge fan of funk music, has very high voice, and she definitely brought some funk in this song. The performance was also very appealing, with dancers, covered in red.
21:22 – Very theatrical, very impressive Danica performed song Suze za kraj (Tears for the end). Followed by couple of dancers, Danica is singing very powerful and mild love song, but with very strong voice.
