For the first time in 10 years, Montenegro’s broadcaster RTCG will host a national selection ‘Montevizija’ to decide who to send to Lisbon next May!
Details released by RTCG state that Montevizija will be held sometime in February 2018. From all the submitted entries, a 5 person jury will whittle them down to just 5 songs (one song each, perhaps?) but then the jury will step aside. Yes, it’ll be entirely up to the Montenegrin public to choose who will represent the smallest former Yugoslav republic at Eurovision 2018.
If you fancy submitting a song for Montevizija, RTCG will open entries on November 1st. Who knows, maybe Montenegro’s next Eurovision contestant is reading these words right now… 😉
As Montenegro have always opted for internal selections since taking part as an independent state for the first time in 2007, we think you’ll agree a new national selection is always an exciting prospect!
Montenegro have only ever made it to 2 Eurovision finals in 9 years of trying. Could it be 10th time lucky for Montenegro?
Let us know what you think!
