SERBIA’S entry for the Eurovision Song Contest has bemused fans with a strange reference to Meghan Markle’s “deeply hydrated” hair.

Performed by Konstrakta, the song is entitled Corpore Sano – which is Latin for having a healthy body – but it has baffled fans of the annual singing competition.

The song, which evokes the music of Kraftwerk, begins with the line: “What could be the secret of Meghan Markle’s healthy hair?”

Konstrakta continues to talk about the importance of hydration and how under-eye circles are supposedly linked to liver distress.

At the same time, she is seen washing her hands in a bowl surrounded by dancers with towels draped over their shoulders, mimicking the set-up of a beauty salon.

“The artist is supposed to be healthy,” goes the chorus of the song, which then crescendos into a gospel-like proclamation: “God grant us health!”

But Meghan is not the sole subject of the song, as Konstrakta goes on to address topics including Serbia’s health system, politics and social norms.

The song seems a direct response to this year’s Eurovision theme, which is “The Sound of Beauty”.

Konstrakta’s performance has been interpreted as a satirical commentary on healthcare systems and beauty standards.

Her song, however, has baffled fans of the contest, with many taking to Twitter to air their thoughts on it.

Alongside an array of confused face emojis, one person penned: “How on earth did Serbia make it through? It’s one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard.”

Echoing their comments, someone else said: “Serbia shouldn’t have qualified – their entry is awful. Ireland and Malta have been absolutely robbed.”

While a third added: “Serbia just name dropped Meghan Markle. That angry scream you hear in the distance is Piers Morgan.”

The Eurovision Song Contest grand final airs on Saturday, May 14 at 8pm on BBC One.
