He’s the outrageous Montenegrin diva who recently made it to Judges Houses on The X Factor UK. Now Slavko Kalezic — who recently performed at SunStroke Project’s concert in Moldova — says he’s ready to reveal all about his X Factor experience. He’s planning to dish the dirt in his upcoming book.

We caught up with Slavko after rehearsals at the SunStroke Project & Friends concert in Chisinau. The Montenegrin artist had high praise for the soundcheck at the Nicolae Sulac National Palace.

But, he added, “it’s incomparable to my soundcheck in Eurovision because my sound in Eurovision was not too good.”

The “Space” singer said he was glad he could speak openly about things. He didn’t hold back. And he had a few things to reveal about The X Factor.

Slavko claimed that The X Factor team had scouted him, soon after the “Space” video was released. “They scouted me. I told them, ‘Ok, I’m very interested, but we need to wait for the Eurovision project to finish.'”

He also shared his literary plans. Slavko promised that he will reveal all in his upcoming book. He says he’ll tell all the behind-the-scenes stories from both The X Factor and his Eurovision experience.

He explained, “I will write about Eurovision. Everything that was happening during. All the struggles, all the difficulties I had — because there were so many difficulties. I wanna write about why I was the only one on the stage who didn’t have any kind of pyrotechnics.”

And it sounds like he’s planning on doing a little digging to discover why he didn’t make The X Factor live shows. “It was supposed that I’m gonna be in the live shows. But I will discover why I wasn’t in the live shows.”

But it wasn’t all book talk. Slavko also shared his favourite moment from Eurovision: “When I said, in the semi-final, “Majko, volim te”, which means “Mother, I love you.” It’s one of the most beautiful parts of my Eurovision journey.”

I didn’t like his act, but his song was cool. In ESC at least

Why does he need to write a book about his Eurovision and X factor experience? If so, everyone who participated in Eurovision could have written a book.
Anyway, I feel like he wants to be all over the news for some reason.

About Slavko: I haven’t seen him on the X-Factor, but if it was anything similar to his ESC song, I totally get why he wasn’t through to live shows. He did come off as a likable person in the ESC interviews, though.

I’ll tell you why you weren’t in the live shows: Because they were using you all along and once the novelty was over they got rid of you. I just hope you got some money for it, but take my advice and go and make some actual music instead of taking an easy pay check from those who couldn’t give a fig about you.

I’m over this guy. I liked ‘Space’, and I even listened to the album he released a couple of years ago and thought it was ok- but I can’t abide how he is more interested now in stupid attention seeking stunts rather than making music.

OFF TOPIC: Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir AKA Silvia Night (Iceland 2006) becomes the first official ESC singer to appear in a superhero blockbuster. She plays the minor role of ”Young Icelandic Woman” in newly released Justice League.

Really? I just watched the movie last night so she must be one of those extras who were standing around Bruce Wayne and giving him cold death stares.*

*This is not a spoiler just in case anyone asks. The scene was shown in the trailers early on.

He’s acting like a diva. Not the confident, sassy person that you guys love, but a very arrogant singer who has a disgustingly high ego. “I was the only singer who didn’t use pyrotechnics” did you watch Portugal’s performance? Or were you too busy sulking over not making it to the final? I don’t even get why his ego is so big, all he has is the hair braid gimmick. News flash Slavko, you can’t do super well based on one gimmick.

Nice strategy Slavko – buy my book so I can earn some money!
I just can’t stand him. He calls himself as an “artist”, that he is making “art” blah blah blah. But he can’t even sing and I don’t know, if wearing a long blue skirt or a braid makes somebody an artist? He seems to have like a really big ego or I don’t know… This guy makes me so cringe.
