After popping their Grand Final cherry last year, Montenegro are going all out for Eurovision 2015. First they selected veteran singer Knez to perform their entry, and now they’ve drafted in the king the of Balkan ballads to help. Earlier today, RTC announced that Zeljko Joksimovic will compose the Montenegrin Eurovision song for Vienna.
Knez revealed that the song will be somewhat faster and happier than what he’s used to and admitted that it will take a lot of hard work to complete it on time. Zeljko also acknowledged the challenge, but said that he couldn’t refuse the offer.
Zeljko has a strong pedigree when it comes to Eurovision success. In the past he has composed four entries, all of which have finished inside the top ten – “Lane moje” for Serbia and Montenegro in 2004, “Lejla” for Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2006, “Oro” for Serbia in 2008 and “Nije ljubav stvar” in for Serbia in 2012. However, a Zeljko penned song has never won the contest. Could this be all about to change? Let us know below.
