MONTENEGRO : Our thoughts on how Knez should stage his Eurovision Entry ‘Adio’
So here are some more first thoughts on ‘How Should They Stage their song at Eurovision 2015’?
Montenegro appears to mean business this year. They were the first country to announce their act for 2015, but the last to reveal the song. Here‘s our article from last October about Knez. As you can see, he’s already a big star in the Balkans. And I mean the geographical region just in case you were wondering.
So backing up Knez is the one-and-only Mr Željko Joksimović. His track record would be envied by almost every songwriter in this year’s contest. He’s not only presented it, but the previous four entries he’s been involved with have been 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 3rd. Are you impressed yet?
As a typical Željko song, you can expect a typical Željko arrangement. This song will use its full quota of six performers on stage. Knez will have a band playing instruments peculiar to the region. Perhaps flautist Miloš Nikolić will be there, as he’s competent at what he does. Or Ksenija Milošević on the violin. We know there will be a pedigree.
The general setting will be dark and atmospheric. No skaters this year I hope, even though the effect created by her in Copenhagen was very noteworthy. Keeping it simple is the key, as this is a classy song. If a backdrop in needed, than maybe just stars, a bit like ‘Lejla’ by Hari Mata Hari in 2006.
As an idea of what it might look like, here’s Željko Joksimović singing Nije ljubav stvar in 2012.
But what do you think?
