At Eurovision 2014, Sergej Cetkovic—the tallest man in B&W Hallerne—took Montenegro to the grand final. The sweet taste of europop success is clearly addictive, as the Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG has happily announced that it will most likely join the party in Austria this year.
Officials from The Land of the Black Mountains insist that while the expenses of participating in Austria may be a small hurdle, they are determined to bring a Montenegrin entry to the stage, saying that the contest is a great opportunity to showcase some raw talent from the country. (The “raw” talent may refer to Sergej’s back-up roller blader — what was that?)
Sources tell us that an official decision will come this autumn. If Montenegro does participate, it will join 21 other countries who have already confirmed their participation this year: Armenia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland and The United Kingdom.
We’d be shocked if they didn’t show. Montenegro recently announced that it will field its first contestant for Junior Eurovision in Malta this November.
