Tonight in Sarajevo, BHRT presented the song that Dino Merlin will sing at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf. The song is called “Love in Rewind”, and was written by Dino himself. He said it is always an honour when he presents a new song, but that it is a bigger honour to “represent your country in the same event as artists from countries such as the United Kingdom, Italy, and Germany”. The song can be downloaded for free at his official website by clicking here.
In an 85-minute show guests included Vukašin Brajić, who sang “Thunder & Lightning” in last year’s final, as well as Beatrice with whom Dino performed the 1999 entry “Putnici”. Beatrice then sang “Gadiamb” from her own collection. The 1997 entrants from Italy, Jalisse, also made an appearance and sang their entry “Fumi di parole”.
There were also performances of some of Dino Merlin’s biggest hits, including “Kokuzna vremena”, which was performed by the young musicians from ‘Maximum Power’ ,and “Da šutiš”, which was covered by Turkish singer Mustafa Sandal.
