Vanja Radovanović drops revamped Eurovision version of “Inje”

Vanja Radovanović won Montevizija back in February. RTCG promised us a new, revamped Eurovision entry of his song “Inje”. In the middle of all news broadcasts all over Europe, he’s dropped the latest version, ready for Eurovision!

“Inje” then and now

When Vanja Radovanović won the national final in Montenegro, reactions were a little mellow. The Balkan ballad didn’t top many polls and tops, probably because of the fact that no official studio version was there.

With the new version, Montenegro show their desire to bring the Balkan ballad back to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Both of Montenegro’s qualifications to the final, in 2014 and 2015, came from Balkan ballads (“Moj Svijet” and “Adio”).

More Montenegrin to follow

Montenegro’s broadcaster RTCG decided to get quite active on Twitter recently. On their account, the broadcaster set out their hopes and desires for upcoming years. Also in coming years, RTCG will be aiming for songs in their native language Montenegrin. That in itself is a change from the past two entries, where both Slavko and Highway sang in English at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Vanja at Eurovision

Vanja will be hoping to bring Montenegro back to the final after their latest two attempts failed to do so. He will fight for one of ten spots in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, where he will sing in the second half of the show.

What do you think about the revamped version of “Inje”? Can Vanja Radovanović make it through to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018?
