Patrick: Sergej Cetkovic – a man with big hands and an even bigger  voice. Ahead of his first rehearsal I was already in love with this song, and with the story about his world of love. Now I’m also a big fan of the performance. Vocally he’s perfect and he doesn’t need any coaching. The staging is so wonderful and colourful that it becomes magic. I really love the ballerina and the clothes of the backing vocalists. Everything looks so perfect – Hvala Montenegro!

Wiwi: You can’t teach people to sing like Sergej. You’re either born with his gift or you’re not. The background is absolutely stunning, and I imagine that’s what an LSD trip would look like. I love Sergej’s black suit. I don’t like the rather cheap looking roller blader who, with one wrong move, could send Sergej tumbling. Get rid of her. She is unnecessary and a bit of a distraction. I’m glad Sergej read our notes and has worked on his facial expressions during the instrumentals. He’s more natural. He’s also en route to the final!

Bogdan: This is an example of a good song and a good singer with bad staging. While Sergej’s “Moj Svijet’ stands a good chance of qualifying for the Grand Final, its staging might bring it down. The background doesn’t make much sense (why didn’t they use shots of beautiful Montenegro?) and the rollerblading makes even less. I know that this is a song contest and it’s a shame because “Moj Svijet” is one of the best songs of the competition, but a certain hamster wheel might steal Sergej’s spotlight, I’m afraid. You have to try harder next time, Montenegro.

I love this song. But oh I wish they would replace the rollerskater with some instrumentalists. Even fake instruments would do.

Zeljko Joksimovic style, lol, this is good one but I don’t think viewers can get excited about this song and Montenegro does not play wise, not only quality that matters, the whole show must be something that is communicating with the audience plus jury, this is slow and and to sweet on its own al alone, watching this performance sergej is not convincing he smiles to the audience and avoids his dream, this is story of lonely man loving and singing for his love, his world, but that smile on his face is not convincing does not match the song,… Read more »

I have not listened to this song til the end .Today did and wow!! it is one of my favourites now (besides UK and Armenia ). Beginning just melts your heart .And singer seems to be a very kind person , he is kinda shy too .He needs to be more confident and feel comfortable . This is a gorgeous song .I want it to be in final !

Unfortunately for Montenegro, only FYROM, Slovenia and possibly Albania and Greece might vote for it in the final.
Montenegro might struggle to qualify, which is a pity, cos they try something different each year and have yet to do so.
It’s a beautiful country and deserve to qualify but I have a feeling they won’t 🙁

In the official video I felt the song tail off slowly with no noticeable end point. Now, however, with the backing singers there is more of an impact in the later part of the song and equal a final crescendo at the end of the song. well done to the Montenegro team for improving the song!

He looks very awkward and nervous on stage. His voice should be the main selling point for a song like this, but alas it isn’t.The dresses are terrible and the decor looks like a cheap vase someone bought for a wedding.

Sorry Montenegro…

It is a nice ballad but it is only really aimed at the Balkan countries (Montenegro, Serbia, Kosovo, Bosnia Herzegovina, Albania ETC.). It might qualify but that’s it.
