While they’ve never quite reached the heights of their debut again, Serbia has continued to do well with a further three top ten entrants including third place in 2012.
Hoping to bring back the glory days of 2007 is Hurricane, who were scheduled to perform at the competition in Rotterdam, The Netherlands before it was cancelled due to coronavirus.
But why would Hurricane blow away the competition?
Here’s everything you need to know about the band and their song entry, which was chosen through a national competition.
