jESC 2015: Serbia – Lena Stamenković – Lenina pesma



It’s the continuation of my opinion regarding the 17 competing entries from the 17 participating countries of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015, which will be held in Sofia, Bulgaria (officially, though, the host will be Bulgaria as a whole. Sofia is only the location of the venue)

Now it’s time for Serbia to shine and they’ll do it with a mid-tempo balkan entry about the world we live in that has a pretty curious title sung in serbian: “Lenina pesma” (translation: “Lena’s song”). The singer of the entry’s title is Lena Stamenković who got her first glimpse of stardom in the talent show “Pinkove zvezdice” and who also co-wrote the lyrics. The composer and also co-lyricist of the song (and also a singer on her own), Leontina Vukomanović, already has some ESC experience in her sleeve as she co-wrote Serbia & Montenegro‘s ESC 2004 entry (“Lane moje”, Željko Joksimović & Ad Hoc Orchestra) and also this year’s serbian entry (Bojana Stamenov, “Beauty never lies”). A more extensive biography of the participant can be seen on this link:

Now to the opinion of the song: Don’t judge a book by the cover… I mean, a unheard song by its song title – what you’ll find is a strong mid-tempo with lovely arrangements and simple but nice lyrics about humanity, all coupled by a highly impressive voice from Lena‘s part. She’s usually a powerful singer (it doesn’t matter if she’s only 11 years old – look at some of her performances in the talent show I’ve mentioned and you’ll understand why I said what I said), so here’s my wish of seeing a equally powerful visual and vocal performance out of her

The before-to-last country to have an opinion from me will be Slovenia. Watch out for it…

Thank you,
