Where Are You? Bosnia & Herzegovina!

Bosnia & Herzegovina remain absent for the third year in a row, blaming financial problems. They really wanted to participate this year, like Bulgaria, but had to withdraw last minute as they simply couldn't afford it. The Bosnians are yet to win although they have been very successful throughout the years. Their best placing was in 2006 with Hari Mata Hari.

Before their withdrawal in 2013, Bosnia had managed to qualify every year and are arguably the most successful Balkan nation in Eurovision. My favourite Bosnian entries include 1999, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2012. It would indeed be lovely to have 'em back. Maya Sar was the last Bosnian act to grace the Eurovision stage with this beautiful ballad...

If they returned, who should sing for Bosnia? I'd love Hari Mata Hari to comeback - and he was even rumoured to be their entrant this year although that obviously didn't work out. Sigh. I'm sure we'll see them return soon it's just a case of when. Hopefully in 2016!
