It’s finally starting to feel like Junior Eurovision season! Today Montenegro have confirmed that fifteen year old singer Jana Mirkovic will represent the country at JESC 2015 in Bulgaria. Mirkovic will perform the song “Oluja”, which translates in to English as “Storm”. Pack your umbrellas!
Jana won’t reveal her entry until a later date, but she is apparently a multi-talented artist, playing both the piano and violin. A native of the capital Podgorica, Jana has also attended dance and ballet schools.
In an interview with MNE Magazin, Jana said she’s looking forward to “giving her best…to introduce children to Montenegro”. Hopefully her best efforts will take her further than her predecessors as JESC: Masa & Lejla finished 14th in Malta with their effort, “Budi dijete na jedan dan”. Jana seems philosophical about it all. “When you love something, you can achieve it all if you want,” she says.
There’s some real talent behind the song too: “Oluja” was written by Boban Novovic and Mirsad Serhatlic, who was part of the team behind Serbia’s Eurovision winner “Molitva”. This follows the pattern from Eurovision 2015, where Serbian star Zeljko Joksimovic wrote the Montenegrin song “Adio” for Knez. If borrowing from your neighbours works, then we say why not?
