RTCG Open Submissions To Represent Montenegro
Welcome back Montenegro 🇲🇪 – we’ve missed you!
Today RTCG, the Montenegrin national broadcaster, have announced their call for submissions of songs to compete in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in Turin in May 2022. Confirming their initial participation earlier this month, songwriters and artists are now invited to send off their compositions and wave their flags in the air to represent the small Balkan country.
We last heard from Montenegro in 2019 with the S Club-like group D mol and their song Heaven. Unfortunately they didn’t qualify for the final, but don’t let that stop you from submitting your song now!
The rules for submitting your song are as follows:
- You can be from all over the globe, regardless of your nationality, however whoever you’ve got singing your song must have Montenegrin citizenship.
- Your song can be in any language.
- Your song cannot have been made public before 1st of October, 2021.
- Authors can submit up to two songs.
- The submission deadline is the 10th of December, 2021, and late submissions will not be considered.
Curiously, if you are submitting a song, you need to do so via the old school way, using the post. Fire-up your legacy CD burner, pop on a stamp and send to: Radio-televizija Crne Gore, Podgorica, Bulevar revolucije 19, Arhiva RTCG – VI sprat, with the following note: Konkurs za Pjesmu Evrovizije 2022. NE OTVARATI, (which translates to DO NOT OPEN).
Full rules can be found on RTCG.me
With no Montevizija this year and with the winner being internally selected, we can only hope Montenegro will send a song to Turin that fits within their range of genres from past songs. Classic Balkan ballads, dance, pop, rock, dubstep, hip-hop, etc al–what will it be?
