The Serbian Eurovision PR Manager, Duška Vučinić-Lučić said that RTS would use the same selection process as in 2010. A televote would decide which of the artists would be the Serbian representative.[1]

On 19 January, RTS announced that Kornelije Kovač and his two daughters Aleksandra Kovač and Kristina Kovač would each compose a song and present a singer, thus competing against each other. The Serbian national final was held on 26 February, and was aired live on RTS1, RTS Digital, www.rts.rs[2] and on Eurovision’s official site.[3] The name of national final is Pesma za Evropu – Diseldorf 2011.
