Personal life[edit]

Career[edit]

Operacija trijumf[edit]

The Operacija trijumf, Balkan version of Endemol's Fame Academy, started broadcasting on 29 September 2008. Đorđe Gogov was gained great popularity, and was among the favourites for the win.[5] However, he was expelled at the ninth gala event, losing to Vukašin Brajić; everyone was surprised, Brajić perhaps the most.[6][7][8][9] Gogov performed with the expelled students Nikola Sarić and Nikola Paunović at the semi-finals event. They covered Billy Idol's hits "White Wedding", "Rebel Yell" and "L.A. Woman".

During the Operacija trijumf, Gogov performed the following songs:

Present[edit]

After the end of the Operacija trijumf, the Emotion Production formed a band named "OT Band", consisting of four participants – Vukašin Brajić, Đorđe Gogov, Nikola Paunović and Nikola Sarić. The band took part in the Beovizija 2009, the Serbian national election for the Eurovision Song Contest 2009.[10] Their song, named "Blagoslov za kraj", was written by E. Owen, S. Vukomanović and E. Botric, and was produced at the Universal Music Group.[11][12] The band placed the 2nd, behind Marko Kon and his song "Cipela".[2] OT Band and the rest of Operacija trijumf contestants held two sold-out concerts at Belgrade's Sava Centar, on 19 and 20 April 2009.[13]
