Emilija Djonin is currently an eight grade student at "Vuk Karadzic" Elementary School in Vrsac, and also a second year student at the "Josif Marinkovic" Music High School. She started singing in her early childhood, and she has already taken part in many festivals and humanitarian events all around Serbia, and abroad as well. Emilija plays the piano, and loves literature, photography, sports, as well as travelling and spending time with her friends.
Emilija's road to Malta
Emilija took part in the third season of "Serbia's Got Talent" which was organised by RTS. She wowed all the jury members and the audience with her voice. In the final, she finished second, even though she was the youngest contestant. The whole nation fell in love with Emilija, and her success was widely covered by the press. In Vršac, her hometown, she became a real little hero. The next step in her career, which Emilija says it's her greatest achievement so far, is of course being selected internally by RTS to take part in Junior Eurovision in Malta.
About the song
"Svet u mojim očima" (or "The World In My Eyes" in English) is a song about romance, and Emilija's love for a boy who she's not sure about if it's just in her dreams, or if it's reality. She wonders if this lucky boy knows that he is the world in her eyes. The song is performed in Serbian, but part of the song translates as follows:
I can' t hide
The way I look at you
In my dreams
I wonder if you can see that
You are the world in my eyes
Emilija is going to be alone on stage. The first part of the song will be more intimate and romantic, and she will be playing the piano. Once she stands up and continues her song, Emilija will give a more colourful performance, and show her true power - her voice.
