You can listen to refrains of all of them in this video:
After a long show which included presentation of the songs, a tribute to late Tose Proeski, performance of Ruslan Alehno, Belarus representative for ESC 2008, Hari Mata Hari who represented Bosnia in 2006 and even a fashion show FYR Macedonia decided to send Tamara, Vrcak and Adrian Gaxha to Belgrade with Vo ime na ljubovta.
The song that won both the televote and the jury vote is an uptempo Balkan pop song with a rap chorus.
