History
Serbia and Montenegro participated in the Eurovision Song Contest three times (also inluce the participation in 1992 as Republic of Yugoslavia.
Serbia and Montenegro had been sent to take part in the 2003. However they were unable to take part after the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) decided that too many countries would be relegated if the country took part. RTS held a contest – Beovizija 2003 – to be used as a “rehearsal” for next years Eurovision selection, held between 12–14 April. The winner was Toše Proeski with “Čija si” – Proeski would go on to represent his home country Macedonia the following year.
No Name were close to becoming the national entry once more, for the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Athens, however since their 2005 win of the national qualifier had been disputed due to tactical voting by the Radio-Television of Montenegro jury, and since the 2006 vote saw a repeat of this, the UJRT, the national union of broadcasters, did not reach an agreement on sending them to the contest again. On 20 March, 2006, Serbia and Montenegro officially withdrew from the ESC. The country did however participate in the final voting for the winner. The Eurovision semifinal was not broadcast in Montenegro in 2006, and so the votes from Serbia & Montenegro, were actually from Serbia alone.
Both countries sent separate entries to the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, after the Montenegrin referendum on independence and dissolution of the state union in June 2006.

1992


Yugoslavia decided their entrant for the contest through a national final, Jugovizija 1992, where it was decided that Extra Nena, with the song “Ljubim te pesmama”, would sing for Yugoslavia at Eurovision 1992.The winning song was chosen by an expert jury.
The national final was held on 28 March 1992 in the TV Center in Belgrade. Artists from Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina competed. There were twenty songs competing in the national final.
Extra Nena performed 20th on the night of the contest, following Italy and preceding Norway. The song received 44 points at the close of the voting, placing 13th in a field of 23.

lyrics
I’m kissing you with songs
I prayed to God
To give me strength
To forgive you everything
To forget as soon as possible
Those long years

You’re still on my lips
I’m kissing you with songs
Dreaded dreams were waiting for us
But we never went to sleep

The dawn broke two glasses
It got drunk of love
It sang better than Gypsies
Oh, God, did I dream it all

You’re still on my lips
I’m kissing you with songs
Dreaded dreams were waiting for us
But we never went to sleep

The dawn broke two glasses
It got drunk of love
It sang better than Gypsies
Oh, God, did I dream it all

The dawn broke two glasses
It got drunk of love
It sang better than Gypsies
Oh, God, did I dream it all

2004


Serbia and Montenegro returned to the Eurovision Song Contest after a 12 year absence, previously as the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.
Serbia and Montenegro decided their entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 through Evropesma 2004, where it was decided, through the use of 8 judges (4 from Montenegro and 4 from Serbia) and televoting, that Željko Joksimović, with the song Lane moje, would sing for Serbia and Montenegro at Eurovision 2004.However, there was some controversy in the national final, in that the Serbian judges did not give a single point to the Montenegrin songs. However, it was agreed on both sides that Joksimović’s song was the best.
The national final, Evropesma 2004, was held on 21 February 2004 in the Sava Center, Belgrade. 4 songs from the Serbian preselection Beovizija 2004, plus 20 pre-selected songs competed to represent Serbia and Montenegro at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul.
The song came first in the semi-final, with 263 points, and progressed to the final.At the final on 15 May, Joksimović sang 5th, following France and preceding Malta. The song came 2nd, behind Ruslana of the Ukraine, with 263 points, meaning that Serbia and Montenegro automatically qualified for the final in the 2005 contest.

lyrics
My sweetheart
When I think of you
I’m afraid of loving you again
I sink my teeth into my blue lips
To forget the real pain

My sweetheart, these days
I don’t even wallow in sorrow any more
I only ask if you are alone
People I can’t hear

My sweetheart, leave tonight
It’s not important, with anyone (Aah…)
Find someone who resembles me
So at least I won’t love you

(May someone else)
(Kiss your lips)
(So I can get over you more easily)

My sweetheart, these days (My sweatheart)
I don’t even wallow in sorrow any more (My sweetheart)
I only ask if you are alone
People I can’t hear

My sweetheart, leave tonight (My sweetheart)
It’s not important, with anyone (Ooh…)
Find someone who resembles me
So at least I won’t love you
So I will no longer love you

2005


Serbia and Montenegro were represented in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 by Montenegrin group No Name with the song “Zauvijek Moja”.
The national final was held in Podgorica on 4 March 2005. It featured 14 songs selected by Serbian broadcaster RTS in Beovizija 2005 festival and 10 songs that qualified from the Montenegrin semifinal “Montevizija 2005”. “Zauvijek Moja” (Forever Mine) by the band No Name, a qualifier from Montenegro’s semifinal, was the controversial winner of the event which was decided by a mixture of jury selection and televote. The Serbian favourite Jelena Tomašević with the song Jutro did not receive any points from the Montenegrin jury while No Name received a small amount of points from the Serbian jury. The probable partisan feeling that led to such a polarised outcome may be partly attributable to the fallout from an earlier heated dispute, initiated when the Serbian qualifiers had been actively promoted on the airwaves in the run-up to the final, in a breach of the rules agreed between the two sides, and one of the reason is probably last year’s Evropesma, when all of the Montenegrin songs weren’t awarded a single point by the Serbian jury. Before allowing “Zauvijek Moja” to be confirmed as Serbia and Montenegro’s entry, the EBU launched an investigation into a number of formal complaints, which also related to hotly disputed allegations of plagiarism. However, after prolonged deliberations, the song was given the green light. The song won the award for the best composition in the contest. The song is written by Milan Perić and composed by Slaven Knezović.

lyrics
Forever mine
There, love, where the bells toll
You will forever be mine only
There where the river kisses the sea
Till dawn
Forever

High up there, behind that hill
Where my old house is
I will with you, my desire
Stay there

There, love, where the bells toll
You will forever be mine only
There where the river kisses the sea
Till dawn

High up there, behind that hill
Where my old house is
I will with you, my desire
Stay there

You’ve wounded my soul
Hypnotized me with beauty

There, love, where the bells toll
You will forever be mine only
There where the river kisses the sea
Till dawn

High up there, behind that hill
Where my old house is
I will with you, my desire
Stay there
Forever
