The Montenegrin national broadcaster RTCG has just officially confirmed that Montenegro is going to take part in the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, which will be held in Tel Aviv next May.
Montenegro’s national broadcaster is yet to confirm the method of selection process of the successor of Vanja Radovanović in Eurovision, but promise that the selection process will be according to the programme needs and internal procedures of RTCG. A spokesperson of the broadcaster stated the following:
RTCG uses its right and its obligation to affirm local authors and musicians, Montenegrin values and culture, and promote its country in front of more than 200 million viewers with the decision to once again take part in the most prestigious music competition in the world, the Eurovision Song Contest.
The Public Service will persist in transparency and in openness of the selection process.
More information on the selection process can be expected in the following weeks, so stay tuned to ESCBubble for all the latest information.
After selecting the entrants completely internally for seven years in a row, RTCG organized Montevizija earlier this year, where Vanja Radovanović beat off four other acts and went on to represent his country in Eurovision in Lisbon with “Inje”. Unfortunately, he failed to qualify for the Grand Final by finishing 16th in his semi final, with a total of 40 points. Montenegro achieved their best ever Eurovision result in 2015 when Knez represented his country with “Adio”, and finished in 13th place.
