jESC 2014: Serbia – Emilia Djonin – Svet u mojim očima



It’s the continuation of my opinion regarding the 16 competing entries from the 16 participating countries of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014, which will be held in Marsa, Malta (officially, though, the host will be Malta as a whole. Marsa is only the location of the venue)

It’s almost coming to an end with just very few more entries left to write an opinion and we move on to Serbia (the fourth and last of four returning countries in this year’s jESC edition). For their comeback, they have sent a soft ballad in serbian titled “Svet u mojim očima” (translated as “World in my eyes”) and it’s going to be sung by Emilija Djonin. She has composed the song herself together with Dragan Ilić, while Nikola Čuturilo made the lyrics. A more extensive biography of the participant can be seen on this link:

Now to the opinion of the song: A conventional ballad in jESC terms which might not be the most original thing, but it’s quite beautiful in its own way (eventhough it’s not as strong as some of the ballads from which they have done quite well in the past, like 2007 and 2010). The best of this song are the lyrics which describe the girl’s passion for a boy who is, according to her, the world in her eyes. Emilija has a strong song, that’s for sure – but will she be able to sell the song with her performance and get a very good placing against all current odds? Only time will tell…

As promised, there’ll be a double post today – as the last debuting country of this edition, Slovenia, is about to take the posting stage by storm. Watch out for it in some minutes…

Thank you,
