Serbias Eurovision act Konstrakta namechecks Meghan Markle in bizarre song about her hair
The Serbian entry for this year's Eurovision Song Contest makes a bizarre reference at none other than the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
Ana Đurić, known as Konstrakta, baffled viewers on Thursday 12 May during her performance in the second semi-final shown on BBC Three.
In the first few lines of her track, In Corpore Sano, viewers heard a reference to Meghan Markle and immediately took to Google to find out what it could possibly have meant.
And as it turns out, the line in question translates in English to "What could be the secret of Meghan Markle's healthy hair? What could it be? What could be the secret of Meghan Markle's healthy hair? What could it be?"
The song then suggests it could be down to her hair being "deeply hydrated".
Konstrakta has since told the organisers of Eurovision that the song isn't specifically about Meghan Markle, but instead about the times we are living in and what society deems important.

She said: "Meghan Markle isn't that important here, but she's representative of all those people in the media that we're focused on.
"The line was inspired by a clickbait headline of an article about her hair.
"It had a sacred connotation as if you read it, you will discover the secret of her healthy hair."
She continued: "It represents our society and the media's obsession with beauty standards.
"She hasn't contacted me yet, but I'd like for her to hear it! This is a song about the atmosphere in which we're living, which has put health as the highest value."
The song also focuses on modern beauty standards.
Speaking to a Serbian newspaper, Konstrakta explained: "I decided to mention Megan in the song because the newspapers write that she has beautiful hair… She has more beautiful hair than Kate Middleton, let's not lie.
"Kate has beautiful hats and Megan has beautiful hair. Megan is also exiled, and we support the exiled people."
Since being named the Serbian entry, the song has gone viral on YouTube, trending at #1 in seven different countries, and has been praised for its combination of Serbian and Latin lyrics.

Following the semi-final, Konstrakta has been deemed a "dark horse" to win the whole competition, behind hot favourites Ukraine.
The war-torn country will be represented by rap group Kaluch Orchestra, performing a Ukrainian-language folk song called Stefania.
The UK entry, Spaceman by Sam Ryder, is also tipped to do well in the competition, with Graham Norton hailing it as "the UK's best Eurovision hope for years".
Graham will be commentating on the contest, which begins at 8pm on Saturday 14th May, broadcast on BBC One.
