Zvezde Granda (Grand Stars, Serbian Cyrillic: Звезде Гранда) is a televised singing contest in Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina[1] organized by the Grand Production record label. It is broadcast live on commercial television throughout the Balkans.

Airing on Pink TV in Serbia, as well as its subsidiaries Pink M and Pink BH in Montenegro and Bosnia-Herzegovina, the competition has so far been held in ten seasons with the eleventh season currently in progress. Musical numbers performed by the contestants usually fall in the folk, pop-folk and turbo-folk genres, although since the 2007 season there has been a significant increase of straight pop elements.

Similar to the Idol series, over the course of a season, the eventual Zvezde Granda winner is voted by the TV. However, Season 11 will have 2 winners, one voted by the public and another one voted by the jury.

Concept[edit]

The show starts with a jury consisting of folk music stars and show's producers, led by the owner of Grand Production, Saša Popović, picking out the contestants in the auditions throughout Serbia and other Balkan countries.

Those picked at the auditions get a chance to showcase their skills on televised broadcasts over the next few months. Eventually, there are 6-7 finalists left (mostly three guys and three girls), who compete in the final night, when one, Grand Star, is chosen. This act is, however, purely symbolical - being the chosen Grand Star does not guarantee success. The only reward for other finalists is one or two songs on Zvezde Granda compilation album. After that, they are pretty much left on their own, to find the way to viewer's hearts and make an album.

Seasons[edit]

Bane Mojićević won the competition, yet, his colleaagues Tanja Savić, Slavica Ćukteraš and Darko Filipović gained much more popularity. The three of them had their first albums come out almost immediately after the finals. Over the next few years, Tanja Savić and Slavica Ćukteraš have become established folk music stars in Serbia and other part of the Balkans.

The winner of the second season of Zvezde Granda was Milica Todorović. This generation of Grand Stars was arguably less successful than the first one, so by 2009. only Jadranka and Milica had their contracts with Grand renewed. Both released their first albums this year, named "Krv sam tvoja" (I'm your blood) and "Pamtim ja" (I remember), respectively.

His victory caught many people by surprise, since he was first pop singer in this mainly folk music competition. Dušan was only 17 when he won. Although Dusan won, his colleagues Milan Stanković and Radmila Manojlović received much more fame.
