Montenegro’s National Broadcaster – RTCG releases information regarding their national selection – Montevizija 2018 and opens submissions window to potential candidates.
The last edition of Montevizija was used as a semi final for determining Serbia and Montenegro’s representative back in 2006.
How it works
The concept of Montevizija 2018 includes one final evening on the 17th on February in which five acts will go up against each other, hoping to win it all.
Rather than involving juries and a panel of music experts, RTCG has decided to let the public have the ultimate say. Which is why they will solely rely on the 100% public vote when it comes to determining the winner.
Montevizija 2018 – The Rules
RTCG has released information regarding the rules that apply to interested artists/composers. Some of which include:
- Artists/Composers from all over the world can submit their entries
- The lyrics of the entries have to be in the official language of Montenegro
- Each artist can submit up to two entries
- The submission process concludes by mid December
The full set of rules can be found on RTCG’s official website – here.
Montenegro at Eurovision
The beautiful mountainous Balkan country has taken part at the Eurovision Song Contest 9 times, managing to qualify for the grand final on two occasions only.
Their highest scoring entry to date is their 2015 entry “Adio” by Knez.
Despite not qualifying for the grand final, Montenegro’s 2017 representative – Slavko remains one of the most memorable characters of this year’s contest. His entry “Space” finished 16th out of 18 competing songs in the first semi final.
