Trouble started when RTV Pink, the biggest rival of Serbian national broadcaster RTS, became interested in broadcasting Beovizija but RTS refused. This resulted by an ultimatum by Pink’s partner City Records to its artist: ‘appearance on national television will be sanctioned by RTV Pink’. They all withdrew from the festival. Later it was rumoured that Beovizija is because of this in jeopardy, since apparently the majority of submitted songs were by City Records artists.

It?s OK though, because thankfully Gary and Neil haven?t sold out and entered the Eurovision Song Contest, it?s actually the European leg of a new worldwide live music competition being held at the Mean Fiddler, where they stand to win $10,000!
It?s a huge accolade for the lads because they?re one of only 14 bands on the Continent to be invited to appear at the launch. Forget about artificial Pop Idol-style competitions and all the other glorified karaoke rubbish, The Global Battle of the Bands is the real deal with real bands playing real music ? live. Encompassing all musical genres, the competition strives to bring the best un-manufactured new talent in the world to a wider audience. Every year local qualifying heats and national finals will be organised in countries around the world, with the winners of these going forward to The Global Battle of the Bands World Final. It?s a fitting accolade for Mexico given that they?re the uncrowned kings of such competitions locally.
