Serbia & Montenegro
Serbia and Montenegro participated in the Eurovision Song Contest twice, from 2004 (see Eurovision 2004). This entry was a success, the country finishing second with the performance of Željko Joksimović. In 2005, the second performance fared 7th, courtesy of the band No Name from Podgorica, Montenegro. Serbia and Montenegro is one of the few countries that have sent all the songs in one of the official languages.
Serbia and Montenegro had been sent to take part in the 2003. However they were unable to take part after the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) decided that too many countries would be relegated if the country took part. RTS held a contest – Beovizija 2003 – to be used as a "rehearsal" for next years Eurovision selection, held between 12–14 April. The winner was Toše Proeski with "Čija si" – Proeski would go on to represent his home country Macedonia the following year.
