After taking on the big challenge of representing Montenegro in Eurovision, it looks like Slavko is not shy of taking a challenge, as he faces his biggest one yet.
He auditioned in front of Simon Cowell, in the latest series of The X Factor UK.
Slavko’s X Factor appearance was used as a promo earlier in the summer which showed that the judges were visibly stunned and impressed by Slavko’s audition.
Slavko kept his signature style ponytail to shock Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh which you can see below.
“I have never seen or heard anything like that” – Simon Cowell
When Slavko walked into the room Louis Walsh instantly recognised Slavko and have mentioned that he encouraged Slavko to audition for X Factor.
The judges were certainly impressed with Slavko’s overall performance with Nicole saying he is her inner Diva. Slavko got 4 Yeses and he is now through to boot camp
Slavko is not the only Eurovision singer that appeared on The X Factor UK. Series 4 alum, Ruth Lorenzo represented Spain in 2014 with her song “Dancing in the Rain” which placed 10th and gave Spain its 2nd top 10 result this decade.
In addition to Ruth, Series 5 alum Lucie Jones represented the UK in 2017 with her song “Never Give Up On You” which placed 15th and gave the UK their highest result since 2011.
Not the first time in X Factor
This is not the first time that Slavko appeared on the X Factor. He also appeared on X Factor Adria, the pan-regional Balkan version of X Factor.
He auditioned with the same song in X Factor Adria. Taking big inspiration from Beyoncé, it looks like he will love his fans till the End of Time! Slavko managed to impress the judges and made it as far as the judges’ houses.
It looks as if appearing in X Factor Adria has helped him; he is now through to the next round of the show!
Slavko at Eurovision
Slavko represented Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2017. He represented the country with his song ‘Space’. Unfortunately, the song failed to make it past the semi-finals and achieved 16th place.
