Bosnia and Herzegovina returned to the Eurovision Song Contest in 1999, after being relegated from the 1998 contest due to a low point average after the 1997 contest.

For the 1999 contest, the Bosnian broadcaster Radio-Televizija Bosne i Hercegovine (RTVBiH) held a national final, BH Eurosong, to select the Bosnian Eurovision entry.

The Bosnian national final was held on 6 March 1999 at the Skenderija City Hall in Sarajevo, hosted by Segmedina Srna and Lejla Babović. 17 songs competed, with the winner being decided by 8 regional juries.

The original winner was declared to be Hari Mata Hari with "Starac i more" (The old man and the sea), however was later disqualified after it became aware that the song had previously been released in 1997 by a Finnish singer. Consequently, the runner-up, Dino & Béatrice with "Putnici", was declared the new winner and represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Eurovision Song Contest 1999.
