Zeljko Joksimovic - Biography

Željko Joksimović, (born 20 April 1972 in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, now Serbia) is one of the most popular singers of Serbia, but is also well-known in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and nearby countries. He represented Serbia & Montenegro in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Lane moje, which finished second behind Ukrainian singer Ruslana.

In 2005, he once again composed a song for the national pre-selection for Eurovision, but Jutro (Morning) was performed by Jelena Tomašević. The song seemed well-placed to progress to the contest in Kyiv after it emerged as the highest-scoring qualifier from the Serbian pre-selection, but ultimately missed out in controversial fashion at the overall Serbia and Montenegro final, when all four Montenegrin jurors overlooked it in distributing their points. No Name, a qualifier from Montenegro's pre-selection, instead represented Serbia & Montenegro in Eurovision 2005.

In October he made a duet with Austrian singer Tamee Harrison. The song was titled "I live my life for you" and was a big success.

In 2006, he composed the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest song 'Lejla' for Bosnia and Herzegovina, performed by Hari Mata Hari.
