Bosnia & Herzegovina’s 2016 Eurovision entry jeopardised by late night bar brawl
A late night bar fight in Vlašić, Bosnia and Herzegovina, involving all members of that country’s 2016 Eurovision group and their songwriter almost threatened the group’s participation in this year’s song contest.

And WHAT an entry they’ve produced for their big return throwing as many fantastic Eurovision tropes as possible into this entry to ensure qualification to the Grand Final.  Local language (check), melodramatic male/female duo (check), skeletal Cello (check), random rapper (check), abrupt ending (check) - it would be criminal to not see Dalal & Deen rewarded with a Grand Final ticket.

Four Questions with Dalal & Deen:

What are the three most interesting aspects of your entry?

Four individual styles bring very interesting mixture to the song. We have an esteemed internationally known Croatian cellist in the team. Deen & Dalal are bonded by a friendship nurtured for over twenty years. They became friends before their music careers, and this friendship survived despite many trials and tribulations, all because of love they feel for each other, and that is the subject of their song.

What are the three most impressive facts about you?

We are all very good friends, successful musicians with more than 15 year long careers and we received more than 150 regional and international awards.

Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?

We have 10 minutes routine – to concentrate and remain quiet.

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?

It's a great opportunity for musicians, singers and songwriters because people from all over the world can hear your music. Eurovision is like the dream come true.
