Serbia: Petar Aničić to Junior Eurovision 2020

RTS just revealed the name of the performer that will represent Serbia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Petar Aničić will wave his country’s flag on 29th November after having been selected internally. The young singer will perform ‘Heartbeat’, which will be revealed at a later date.

Petar is very excited to represent Serbia: “It is a great challenge and an excellent opportunity to showcase my talent and represent my country in the best possible way.”

Petar Aničić was born in 2006 and started making music at the age of 4. When he was six, he enrolled in the Mokranjac Junior Music School in Belgrade and only one year later, he composed his first piece called I Run Fast. During his education, Petar performed at numerous concerts and contests where he won several awards.

In addition to music, Petar is also a fan of history, geography, languages and sports. Besides singing and playing the piano, he practices rowing and he would recommend this sport to everyone “because of the calming effect of the water and the fact that rowing helps develop both physical and mental strength.” He likes to be around positive, cheerful, extrovert and funny people.

Two months ago, RTS started the search for the singer and song that will represent Serbia at Junior Eurovision 2020 on 29th November. From all the submissions received, a jury panel made up of music professionals from RTS selected the winner.

The song Petar will perform at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020 is called “Heartbeat” and was composed by himself along with Vladimir Graić (music) and Leontina Vukomanović (lyrics). The two adult composers have already been behind some of the past Serbian entries as both wrote U La La La (2016), while Leontina composed Lenina Pesma (2015) and wrote the lyrics for the last year’s entry Podigni Glas. This year’s Serbian song was arranged by Vladimir Graić and Nemanja Filipović.

Last year, Darija Vračević represented Serbia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and reached the 10th place with the song “Podigni Glas (Raise Your Voice)”.
