With inspirations going from Rihanna, Beyoncé and Quincy Jones, Hurricane sing mostly Pop and R&B music.

The show

Beovizija 2020's Grand Final was hosted by the same four faces as the two previous semi-finals. While Dragana Kosjerina and Jovan Radomir were the main two hosts, Kristina Radenković and Stefan Popović were in charge of the green room.

The four hosts - along with members of Balkanika (Serbia 2018) - opened the show's Grand Final with a medley of big Eurovision songs such as Bandido (Spain 1990).

As soon as the 12 performances were presented, the hosts opened the televoting and quickly introduced the group of juries - including Nevena Božović (Serbia 2019). The lines were opened for 15 minutes.

The interval acts took over as soon as the lines were closed.

Marija Šerifović (Serbia 2007) performed her winning song "Molitva" and other songs. Hari Mata Hari (Bosnia & Herzegovina 2006) was also part of the show and performed "Lejla".
