Nevena Ivanović (Serbian Cyrillic: Невена Ивановић; Serbian pronunciation: [nɛ̌ʋɛna ǐʋanoʋitɕ]; née Božović; Божовић; Serbian pronunciation: [bɔ̂ːʒɔʋitɕ]; born 15 June 1994) is a Serbian singer-songwriter. She debuted by representing Serbia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the song "Piši mi", placing third. Božović rose to prominence as the runner-up on the televised singing competition Prvi glas Srbije in 2013.

The following year, Božović and two other finalists, Mirna Radulović and Sara Jovanović, formed the girl group Moje 3 and represented Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 with the song "Ljubav je svuda", failing to reach the finals. She was the first ever artist to ever compete in both the Eurovision Song Contest and Junior Eurovision Song Contests as a main performer.[1] Božović competed in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 again as a solo artist with the song "Kruna".

Life and career[edit]

Early life[edit]

She was born and attended school in Kosovska Mitrovica. Božović studied music at the University of Arts in Belgrade.[2]

Career[edit]

In 2007, Nevena participated in Izbor za dečju pesmu Evrovizije, Serbia's national selection for Junior Eurovision with "Piši mi" (Write me). On the final night, she received the first place and went on to Rotterdam, Netherlands to represent Serbia. On 8 December, Nevena was ranked third overall with 120 points, making Serbia's best result in the contest. In 2009, after a small break from music, she decided to come back, taking part in Sunčane skale with "Ti" (You).

In 2012, Nevena took part in Serbia's version of The Voice. After three months of live shows, battles and challenges, Nevena qualified for the final, where she ranked second after Mirna Radulović.

In 2013, together with Mirna and Sara, all three participants in Prvi Glas, she took part in Beosong 2013 with "Ljubav je Svuda" (Love is all around). The trio won the contest with over 25,000 votes and went on to represent Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö, where they performed in the first semi-final[3] and finished eleventh, missing out on the final by six points. That same year, in July, she presented her new single, named "Pogledaj me" (Look at me). In the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna, she was one of the five jurors for the Serbian jury panel.

Her single 'Jasno mi je' (It's Clear to Me ) was awarded at the 2019 Music Awards Ceremony. She competed in Beovizija 2019 with the song, "Kruna", and won the competition, receiving the rights to represent Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.[4]
