At the end of February, Tijana Bogicevic was announced as Serbia’s representative to the Eurovision Song Contest 2017. On Saturday, she released her song and music video for the competition, titled “In Too Deep”.
The song is another ballad, but this one is slightly more upbeat than the many others that will be presented on the Eurovision stage. It definitely builds and could do quite well in the show. However, there is an awful lot of ballads this year and therefore could go the other way and get lost amongst the many talented acts.
The accompanying music video features a performance piece and a choreographed dance scene. Tijana Bogicevic brings it during the performance side of the video, fully giving the song power just when it needs it and totally giving it passion and emotion.
The dancers are extremely emotive, giving the song a beautiful narrative that easily relates to the song. The choreography is intricate, intimate and expressive.
There is an interesting hoop-swing involved, which merges the dance scene with the performance scene, could we expect to see this involved in the staging of this song? There is also a serene water scene, that switches the video up altogether.

Serbia debuted at Eurovision in 2007, that same year they won. Since then, they have made it in the top 20 whenever they made the Grand Final. They failed to make the Grand Final in 2009 and 2013. They did not compete in 2014. Last year, Serbia came 18th with 115 points; their act was Sanja Vucic ZAA, who sang “Goodbye (Shelter)”. Can Tijana Bogicevic go all the way and win this year?
The competition is definitely going to be a competitive year. The semi-finals will take place on 9 May and 11 May, with the Grand Final taking place on 13 May 2017. Last year, Jamala won with “1944”, bringing the contest to her home country of Ukraine. It will be held at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv. Who will win? Time will tell.
