Highway failed to qualify for the grand final of Eurovision 2016, and Montenegro are ready to get back on the road. According to news website CDM, Milena Vucic has said she would like to represent Podgorica at the contest and RTCG, the Montenegrin broadcaster, is open to it.
RTCG’s Head of Council said that after three years of male singers representing Montenegro it would be nice to field a lady. Nevertheless, the council is not ready to make a decision right now, but they are willing to talk about it in the near future.
Who is Milena Vucic?
Milena Vucic is a Montenegrin pop singer. She started her career as a member of the group Negro but went solo in 2006. That year she won the prestigious music festival Suncane Skale with her song “Da l’ ona zna” in two categories — song of the summer and new star. It went on to become a huge hit in Montenegro, cementing her position as one of the country’s rising stars. Since then she has released a string of successful pop songs and she clearly wants her next single to reach a broader audience via Eurovision.
