Less than 24 hours after confirming their intent to participate in Eurovision 2016, Montenegro have tonight revealed details of the act which will represent them in Stockholm. After two years of male soloists, RTCG have opted for a three-piece boyband – Highway.
The group were put forward by a special committee made up of music industry figures, and received unanimous approval from the broadcaster’s board. They are Montenegro’s seventh Eurovision act since the country gained independence, and head to Sweden with high expectations following Knez’ 13th place finish in 2015. As of yet, no details regarding the song have been released.
Who are Highway?
The trio consists of Peter Tosic, Marko Pesic and Luke Vojvodic. They come from the Podgorica area of Montenegro and rose to fame on the 2015 series of The X Factor Adria. Mentored by the Croation singer Tonci Huljic, they made it all the way to week 6, finishing fourth overall.
What do y’all think of the news? One person who won’t be happy is poor Vasilije Ojdanic. Y’all may remember that he managed to fool a considerable portion of the euro-sphere into believing he was in fact the chosen one.
Highway are only the second act confirmed for Stockholm. They will join Douwe Bob, who was selected for the Netherlands last week.
