Pesma za Evroviziju 23

Serbia used Pesma za Evroviziju to select their Eurovision 2023 representative. The show consisted of two semi finals and one final broadcast from RTS Studio 8 in Belgrade.

All three shows had four hosts. The on stage hosts were Serbian actor Milan Marić and Serbian TV host Dragana Kosjerina, and the green room hosts were Serbian actress Kristina Radenković and actor Stefan Popović.

The results were determined by a 50/50 voting style split between a professional jury and a public vote.
