RTCG, the public broadcaster of Montenegro, responsible for the nation's participation in events organised by the European Broadcasting Union have confirmed their debut in this year's edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Malta. This will be the second country to mark it's debut in the event, following in the footsteps of Italy, whose representative broadcaster, RAI Gulp, confirmed participation a couple of days back.

At this moment in time, Montenegro has not divulged the manner in which the act will be chosen but it is highly likely that they will follow their recent internal selection success used during the senior edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, where Sergej Cetkovic and his entry "Moj Svijet" got the Balkan nation through to the final for the very first time. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news about the 2014 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest set to take place on the 15th November.

Montenegro, one of the countries which is yet to qualify to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest have finally decided to use the formula that the Balkan countries have somewhat become accustomed to use in recent years, that incorporating a renowned artist. Sergej Cetkovic is one of the most famous names in the music industry, having successfully released five albums from the millennium onwards and also awarded Male Pop Singer of the Year back in 2010. RTCG, the broadcaster responsible for Montenegro's participation at the international event organised a press conference, confirming the rumours that had been spreading in recent months.

Montenegro has been unlucky in the singing competition, with none of it's five (5) entries getting beyond the semi-final stage of the competition. Their best result was an eleventh place finish back in 2009 when Andrea Demirović and her entry Just Get Out of My Life amassed forty-four (44) points. At this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, Igranka performed by Who See garnered forty-one (41) points to finish in twelfth place. Official details with regards to the song will be given in due course. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news about the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Rade Vojvodic, who just happens to be the Chief Executive Officer at RTCG, the public broadcaster responsible for the participation of Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest stated in an exclusive interview with the newspaper, Vijesti that they will be taking part in Copenhagen, Denmark. Sergey Cetkovic is set to be revealed as the next representative but nevertheless, negotiations are still ongoing as the nation selects its sixth entrant.

The popular male vocalist was voted pop singer of the year in Serbia back in 2010 and has had a string of successful releases including; Pogledi u Tami which you could listen to just below. Vojvodic also commented about the new rules and regulations put forward by the European Broadcasting Union in recent days which makes things clearer. Nevertheless, there are still doubts with regards to the tele-voting due to the fact that all the votes are counted in one place, believing that more companies should be involved in the process.

A small amount of countries competing in the Eurovision Song Contest are yet to realise their full potential and succeed by virtue of qualification and one of them is Montenegro. Since seperating from Serbia, the nation is yet to make an impact and in four participations, disaster has struck on each occasion. The closest to being successful was in 2009 when Andrea Demirovic performed the track Just Get Out of My Life co-written by the successful Ralph Siegel, the same man behind the San Marino entry in this years' edition of the international showcase. RTCG, the broadcaster responsible for the participation of the country is taking a different route this time round. 

Who See, with the aid of Nina Zizic will be representing Montenegro in this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the song Igranka. Through their delegation, we had the opportunity to speak to them briefly about their participation. The hip hop duo are were clearly in favour of representing their country 'in the world's biggest music event' adding that they hope that their song 'will popularise hip hop culture not only in Montenegro but even beyond'. On the other hand, on the mere mention of Malta, they seemed extremely positive saying that the 'Eurovision needs to head into warmer areas in Europe' and that Malta 'have wonderful beaches and good parties'. Montenegro's disapproval across the years has been attributed to tracks which have not reached the mainstream idea of music but nevertheless, it seems that this could be the chance to move forward and succeed according to pundits and opinionists. 

Within the next couple of hours, as rehearsals for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest commence in Sweden, the duo will be meeting up with Gianluca especially for the simple reason that they 'support his entry' and will be hoping that they could succeed together as they head onto the final. Montenegro will be competing in the first semi-final of this years' international showcase where they will not be opening the show as has always been the case in each of their four previous participations but rather at a modest number #9 meaning, mid-way through the show. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news with regards to the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest.

Montenegro: Reviewing the track 'Igranka'

English has always been a predominant language in recent years when it comes to the Eurovision Song Contest and whilst it has kept the majority this time round, national tongues are becoming popular once more. The escflashmalta.com team of expert reviewers have listened to each entry competing in the international showcase. All of the information is obtained from the official website of the international spectacle and indeed, pertaining to the running order as decided by the producers, Montenegro will be performing in slot number nine (9) from the sixteen (16) entries which will be competing during the first semi-final. RTCG, the broadcaster resposible for the participation of Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest will be represented by the song Igranka co-written between Dejan Dedovic (Dedduh), Mario Djordjevic (Noyz), Djordje Miljenovic (Wikluh Sky) and performed by WhoSee ft. Nina Žižić.

The group was created in early 2000s, recording their first demo track titled Dim Po Dim (Puff After Puff). In 2007, the group released their debut album, Sviranje kupcu. After two years of preparation and recording, the band released their second album Krš i Drača in 2012, the WhoSee single Reggaeton Montenegro conquered the charts in the Adriatic region and spent five weeks at number one of the MTV regional Top 20 chart. This hip-hop duo is known for their humour and funny videos, and they are making history as the first band from Montenegro ever to be nominated for a MTV EMA! For song Reggaeton Montenegro, Who See won MTV EMA award for Best Adriatic Act 2012 and MTV Video Play Award 2012 – Double Platinum. 

Video for the song 'Reggaeton Montenegro' in 2012 were aired over 800 times on the MTV. Otherwise, Dedduh is married and works as a salesman in a toy store, while Noyz has his own studio in which he successfully works on video editing and graphic design. The official CD / DVD cover for the Eurovision song Igranka was made by Noyz. Nina Zizic started with musical career in 2003. Her first single was Odlazi and after this she recorded six more singles. She has participated in many music festivals in the region and won a few prizes. At 2006 she participated in Montenegro's selection for Eurovision Song Contest with the song Potraži me. Djordje Miljenovic was born on December the 10th 1980 in Belgrade. To the audience he is more known as Wikluh Sky, as one of the members of trio Bad Copy, beside Ajs Nigrutin and Timbe. Wikluh Sky works as a performer himself and lately as a composer for other artists. He is mostly into hip-hop, reggae, dub-step, R&B.


Montenegro is taking part in this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest for the fifth time hoping that they will be able to encounter some form of success considering that they are yet to reach the final of the prestigious event. Since the split between Serbia and Montenegro, it seems that success has beckoned for the former as opposed to the latter especially when one takes into considering that they triumphed thanks to Marija Serifovic and her entry Molitva on their first solo outing. Internal selections have somewhat been characteristic for Montenegro with the broadcaster seeking international success without any over expenditure. The best result achieved at this point in time was back in 2009 when Andrea Demirovic took to the stage with the song Just Get Out of My Life finishing in eleventh place with a total of forty-four (44) points which were amassed from all over the continent.

The song which was written by Bernd Meinunger, José Juan Santana Rodriguez and Ralph Siegel, the latter known for winning the 1982 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest was thought to be a draw card but nevertheless, opening the show did not help and thus failed to pass through to the final, albeit by a couple of points. The market that the broadcaster is trying to reach is extremely difficult because alternative genres are yet to receive a lot of attention at the international spectacle despite high acclaim from pundits. This year, they are sending hip-hop infused into dubstep, a true formula which might not be well appreciated when performed live. Nevertheless, one could instantly note that there has been a lot of effort put into the track to make it sound both professional and international. The fact that Montenegro will not be opening the show is also a positive sign but nevertheless, coming after a string of favourites might also be troublesome.

Professional Critics Voice their Opinion

Rating: 37%

Magnus Kaxe: Combined male rap in the verses and female vocals in the chorus with a modern house touch. I listened to it five times but I can't still remember a single note. The video is disgusting and focuses more on female body parts than the artists. This is the video one gets when there is no song to speak of.

Lina Eriksson: There aren't any words to describe this song in my opinion. I just have no real opinion about it so I'd rather not even say, No!

Matt Mercieca (Muxu): This is such a Guilty Pleasure, I LOVE IT!!! the guys kind of make me laugh, and remind me of Goerge u Pawlu, but the beat is so current, very dub step , and I love her voice. I'm curious to see how eurovision fanatics react to this, I really like it, when the guys rap its a little funny though. but this girl is Banging , and the song is so cool. Definitely one of my faves this year.

Montenegro: RTCG Select Rap Group Who See

Montenegro is one of the least successful countries at the Eurovision Song Contest noting that since its dissolution from Serbia, qualification has never been achieved with the best result coming at the hands of Andrea Demirovic back in 2009 as she took to the stage as the opening act with the track Just Get Out of My Life finishing in eleventh place. They returned to the stage of the international showcase earlier this year but unfortunately, their hopes on Rambo Amadeus were put to rest relatively quickly noting that he finished at th. Bottom of the scoreboard with his entry Euro Neuro. There were rumours that No Name were set to reform for the occasion but this idea was also quickly laid to rest as RTCG announced Who See as their representatives.

The choice of Who See has already received mixed criticism from fans of the Eurovision Song Contest due to the fact that their music is not really the typical element that does well at the event, nevertheless  it has been noted time and time again that there is no real formula to succeed at the competition. The duo came together for the first time in 2002, the year in which Marie N and her entry I Wanna won the competition on behalf of Latvia and in which Ira Losco and 7th Wonder for Malta finished in second place. It has been noted again that the duo are quite talented with their music being well received in the Balkan block noting that the Music Television channel awarded them the trophy for the Best Adriatic Act in recent years. More details about their entry will be revealed in due time. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.
