The tenth artist to feature in our Who Is series for the Junior Eurovision 2020 season is Petar Aničić from Serbia.
Fourteen-year-old Petar Aničić began his music career at the age of four, where he began composing his own music. He enrolled in the Mokranjac Junior Music School in Belgrade two years later and has since performed in numerous contests and concerts. He is the first male soloist in history to represent Serbia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Alongside music, Petar enjoys history, languages, geography, and sports. He practices rowing, as well as playing the piano.
Petar was internally selected to represent his country at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest by RTS. He will sing “Heartbeat”, written by Leontina Vukomanović and Petar Aničić, and composed by Vladimir Graić and Nemanja Filipović.
Serbia made their debut in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as an independent country in 2006. They were represented by Neustrašivi učitelji stranih jezika on their debut with the song “Učimo strane jezike”, finishing 5th with 81 points. Serbia went on to compete annually until 2010, after which point RTS withdrew from the contest due to financial difficulties. Serbia returned to the contest in 2014 and has gone on to compete in the contest annually.
