When Knez arrived on the carpet ahead of the Eurovision Opening Ceremony on May 17, he was flanked by his posse of all-female dancers and backing vocalists. The Montenegrin representative confessed that he was very proud to stand next to the beautiful girls on stage, especially since his daughter Xenia is among them. He told us that having her on stage gives him strength. Apparently so much strength that he later placed ninth in his semi final and 13th in the grand final.
Knez also told us about the beautiful images of Montenegro’s landscape that appeared on his LED. “We want the same atmosphere on the stage as in the video, because the song itself is very ambiental”, Knez said. He encouraged people to follow the song’s message: “Love each other and enjoy it. Love is something special!” We couldn’t agree more!
