Back in December, RTCG revealed the five artists that will be competing in Montevizija 2019. This year’s national selection features three returnees, including one former Eurovision participant! Today, the five songs have been released on RTCG Montevizija’s official Youtube channel.
You can hear the five entries competing for the ticket to Tel Aviv below:
- Andrea Demirović – Ja sam ti san
- D mol – HEAVEN
- Ivana Popović-Martinović – Nevinost
- Monika Knezović – Nepogrješiva
- Nina Petković – Uzmi ili ostavi
Few acts, but plenty of familiar faces
As previously announced, Andrea Demirović is making a comeback after representing Montenegro at Eurovision 2009 with “Just Get Out Of My Life”. Unfortunately, she did not advance from the second semi-final, after narrowly missing out in 11th place. Ten years on, will she get to the finals this time around?
Of course, Andrea isn’t the only returnee; Ivana Popović-Martinović and Nina Petković both took part in Montevizija 2018. Last year’s Montevizija was eventually won by Vanja Radovanović, who represented Montenegro in Lisbon with “Inje”. He finished 16th out of 18 acts in semi final 2, with 40 points.
Will any of these entries be able to bring Montenegro to the Eurovision final for the first time since 2017? Time will tell. On February 9th, the winner of Montevizija will be decided in a one-shot national final. Once again, it is expected that the format will consist of performances from the five acts, followed by a ‘super final’ with the top two.
