Our favourite Montenegrin “Space” man Slavko may be in self-isolation, but that does not mean he is unable to bring the galaxy of Eurovision stars into your lounge rooms. Cue slick hair flick.

Montenegro’s 2017 representative joins fellow Eurovision artists Ryan O’Shaughnessy, Tamara Todevska and Rasmussen in the inaugural episode of the Eurovision Home Concerts series. The four stars are set to perform much loved Eurovision songs from their homes to ensure this year does not miss a Eurovision beat.

Speaking exclusively to wiwibloggs, Slavko revealed more about why he wanted to take part in what he calls a “beautiful idea”:

“It’s a big opportunity as this year’s Eurovision is cancelled, and I think it’s a beautiful idea of Eurovision producers to do this project so everyone from their homes can enjoy their favourite Eurovision artists.”

“I am very pleased to be in the first episode with three other artists.”

Slavko is set to perform two songs as part of Eurovision Home Concerts. He’ll be bringing back his iconic helicopter-hair dance floor anthem “Space” and also turning up the heat with a cover of fellow hair-raising, dancing extraordinaire Eleni Foureira’s “Feugo”. The latter song was chosen for him by fans through an online poll.

But does that mean he’ll be bringing his much-admired Rapunzel-type plat out of retirement and giving it a good whipping for this special concert series? Slavko says wait and see:

“In both performances, there will be very familiar props, and there will be new things I have invented in my performances.”

“My purpose is that everyone watching my performances laugh so much, be entertained and I just want to bring happiness to their homes, of course.”

“I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

And neither can we!

The first show of Eurovision Home Concerts will kick off on 3 April – that’s tomorrow! The show will be available on the official Eurovision YouTube channel.

The results of the other online polls will see Ryan O’Shaughnessy taking on Iceland’s Eurovision 2020 entry “Think About Things”. Tamara Todevska will put her powerful vocals behind Mahmood’s 2019 runner-up song “Soldi”. Meanwhile, Rasmussen will tackle Denmark’s last winning Eurovision entry “Only Teardrops” by Emmelie de Forest.

Just a throwback to the Eurovision most unexpected royal couple : Slavko and Marija Serifovic, winner from 2007 <3

Fuego isn’t a vocal strain which is why I’d recommend it to him

I hate how older songs are getting smacked down in these polls, as it’s already denied us a few covers I would’ve loved to hear. I’m sure he’ll kill “Fuego,” but I’m bored with that song. On the other hand, I’ve gotten really into a bunch of the songs from the 1991 contest (seriously, look it up – occasionally-dodgy orchestra aside, you’ve got all-time classics from countries like Israel, Sweden, France, Greece, Iceland, and Portugal, and underrated gems from countries like Ireland, Italy, Finland, and Belgium), and Bebi Dol’s “Brazil” is a major-league guilty pleasure. She’s an LGBTQ+ icon in… Read more »

Similarly, Tamara will probably do an amazing version of “Soldi,” but man oh man would it have been cool to hear her cover “Where Are You?” I heard Lesley Roy is also on the docket, and fans have been floating her a bunch of possible covers, but I personally suggested an actual Irish pop-punk song from the late ’00s, Sinead Mulvey & Black Daisy’s “Et Cetera” from 2009 (that song was ROBBED, absolutely should’ve qualified over Lithuania).

Agreed. Tamara has actually already covered “Soldi” ( http://youtube.com/watch?v=pvkXQH5a9ac ).
I’m currently revisiting the contests from the ’80s and I’ve recently realised that Norway was absolutely amazing back then – “Romeo”, “Lenge leve livet”, “For var jord”, “La det swinge” (obviously), “Samiid aednan”, “Aldri i livet”, Teigen’s entries… Even “Mitt liv” had one of the craziest haircuts in ESC history.

Everyone needs a Slavko moment to brighten up their lives at this dark time.
