Magazin: It's A Family Affair

After searching for the best part of a year, Magazin have finally revealed Jelena Rozga's replacement and their fourth lead singer: Ivana Kovač, daughter of the iconic Dalmatian singer Mate Mišo Kovač. (Actually, make that sixth lead singer: the band's two first vocalists during their Dalmatinski magazin days have dropped out of history along the way.)

Kovač's family, famously, come from Šibenik rather than the Magazin heartland of Split, though Magazinologists might almost be more surprised that the group chose a brunette rather than another of their trademark blondes.

Believe everything you hear, though, and it would seem that Magazin nearly ended up with a transnational revamp this summer: according to Jutarnji list in August, the group's manager Tonči Huljić was so impressed by Macedonia's Eurovision representative Elena Risteska when they met on a TV show that he offered her the job backstage.

No word, yet, on where this leaves Andrea Šušnjara, the teenage singer from Split who's been the gossips' long-term favourite to take over the Magazin role for at least two years - and might have had the gig in February if she hadn't shot her mouth off to a tabloid reporter.
