To sam jaz update: “Balkan Mix”

Not surprising given the history and demographics of the former Yugoslavia, the ethnicities of few of the contestants are clear-cut.

Croatia’s Novi List reports in a sidebar titled “Balkan Mix” that Edin, who is representing Bosnia and Hercegovina, was actually born in Montenegro, while Serbia’s Mićo is ethnically Serbian but has lived in Skopje for many years. Dijana, who is representing Serbia, is actually not ethnically Serbian at all: she is half Croatian, half Hungarian. And Slovenia’s Miro is ethnically Macedonia and Croatia’s Edis is half Croatian, half Macedonian [Novi List / 03.01.05 / Hrvatski predstavnik ima »loš predosjećaj«].
