The jury for Bosnia and Herzegovina in Eurojury 2020 is formed of two members, consisting of Dalal Midhat and Fazla.
Each voting nation is represented by a jury consisting of past Eurovision, Junior Eurovision, national final participants and special guests. Each juror is asked to form a ranking of their favourite competing songs which is combined with the other jurors in their country.
Dalal is a Bosnian singer known for her style of both R&B and pop. She has previously been a member of Bosnian duo Erato alongside Aida Jašarević for several years, even working with future Croatian Eurovision competitor Jacques Houdek. With Erato, she achieved over 50 awards including four Davorins.
In 2016, Dalal was brought together with fellow musicians Deen, Ana Rucner and Jala to represent Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Eurovision Song Contest in Stockholm.
This was the first time the country had appeared at the contest in 4 years, their song “Ljubav je” was performed in the semi final stages where sadly it didn’t advance to the Grand Final. This remains Bosnia and Herzegovina’s latest appearance at the contest.
Fazla is a singer that became the first artist to represent Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1993.
He represented his country with the song “Sva bol svijeta” which was about the suffering of the ongoing Bosnian war. The entry was highly admired within the Eurovision community as he and his band avoided gunfire in order to escape the country and travel to Millstreet to compete at the contest.
Following the contest, Fazla released his album in Bosnia before moving to the United States in 1996.
The Bosnian Votes
As revealed previously, in alphabetical order, the top 10 countries selected by the Bosnian jury are:
- Austria (Top 3)
- North Macedonia (Top 3)
- Russia (Top 3)
Bosnia and Herzegovina are taking part in Eurojury 2020 as a voting member only. This is because the country had no intentions of competing in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020.
About Eurojury 2020
Eurojury will return in 2020 for the eighth broadcast of the most accurate simulation of Eurovision results. 180 Eurovision winners, past participants, national finalists and a handful of special guests are due to take part in this year’s edition, which will be broadcast live on Showcase, by Eurovoix on May 1st.
For the past two years, Eurojury has correctly identified the winner of Eurovision with both Netta and Duncan Laurence topping the overall leaderboard in Eurojury and the Eurovision Song Contest itself. Eurojury also correctly identified four out of the top five acts in the final in Tel Aviv.
For a fifth consecutive year, Rob Lilley will present the coverage. This will be the third time he has been the sole presenter following two editions with a co-host – 2016 with Karl William Lund and in 2019 with Alice Chapman.
Directing the show once again will be Samuel Deakin – he has conducted this role on every edition of Eurojury. Heading up the production will be James Rowe after he co-produced the broadcast in 2019.
We’re pleased that we have partnerships with multiple trusted Eurovision brands this year: Eurovision Hub, Aussievision, ESCXTRA, Eurovision Showcase and The Euro Trip. Each brand will be supporting Eurojury 2020 in the run-up to the three broadcasts on April April 27, April 29 and May 01.
