Mid-August, and the team of Radio International led by Juergen Boernig continues to help one deal with the absence of new material as summer somewhat brings down the Eurovision Song Contest preperations. We would like to invite you to the weekly Ultimate Eurovision Experience. Apart from the means of FM Radio in the Netherlands on FM 106.8 and the audio stream from the studio via www.radiointernational.tv and on Digital Cable 781 & Cable 8.1Mhz in the Netherlands, the show will also be web-televised via the Radio International TV Channel from the studio and linking up the many international Eurovision fans and friends and play your requests and read your messages out on air. The simulcast will be from 2000 – 2300 hours CET when fans can join in and chat amongst each other via the Chat Room and request their favourite Eurovision entry.

Moje 3, a trio made up of Mirna Radulović, Nevena Božović, and Sara Jovanović were specifically brought together following The Voice of Serbia in an attempt to create the ultimate girlband with the Eurovision Song Contest being their debut. Their entry entitled Ljubav Je Svuda co-written by Saša Milošević Mare and Marina Tucaković failed to get through the first semi-final, finishing in eleventh place with forty-six (46) points, just six points behind Estonia who had come in tenth place. This evening, Radio International will be chatting to the girls for the final time noting that they have officially disbanded and will be pursuing other projects as solo artists. They made it clear that the project was just set for the Eurovision Song Contest and quite frankly, it did not prove successful. Other interviews to be aired during this weeks' episode; Who See (Montenegro 2013), Nodi & Sopho (Georgia 2013), Per (Latvia 2013) and Hannah Mancini (Slovenia 2013).

Malta, represented by Gianluca and the track Tomorrow co-written by Dean Muscat and Boris Cezek saw the nation finish in eighth place, the first top ten result since 2005. The male artist has been featured on Radio International hosted by Juergen Boernig on several occasions and his songs will surely be requested once more. We would like to invite you to the weekly Ultimate Eurovision Experience. Apart from the means of FM Radio in the Netherlands on FM 106.8 and the audio stream from the studio via www.radiointernational.tv and on Digital Cable 781 & Cable 8.1Mhz in the Netherlands, the show will also be web-televised via the Radio International TV Channel from the studio and linking up the many international Eurovision fans and friends and play your requests and read your messages out on air. The simulcast will be from 2000 – 2300 hours CET when fans can join in and chat amongst each other via the Chat Room and request their favourite Eurovision entry.

On this weeks' episode of Radio International, the main focal interview is with Roberto Bellarosa, the male vocalist who represented Belgium at this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. His entry entitled Love Kills co-written by Jukka Immonen and Iain Farquharson was perceived as a surprise qualifier but has turned out to be a commercial success, entering charts in The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and of course, Belgium. Shy of a top ten result, the song finished in twelfth place with seventy-one (71) points in total. Throughout the fortnight of the Eurovision Song Contest, Roberto grew in confidence and it seems that this is something which both the audience and the media realised as he performed during the semi-final stage of the competition. Other interviews to be aired during this weeks' episode; El Sueno de Morfeo (Spain 2013), Who See (Montenegro 2013), Moje 3 (Serbia 2013) and Stella Jones (Austria 1995). It is important to point out that the latter will be LIVE.

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.

Montenegro: 'Igranka' Officially Presented

Qualifying to the final of the Eurovision Song Contest is made to look extremely easy by a couple of nations but nevertheless, not everyone is as lucky to have either competent performers or enough support in overseas territories and one of the unsuccessful remains to be Montenegro. The best result returned to the Ex-Yugoslavian nation is an eleventh place finish back in 2009 when Andrea Demirovic took to the stage with the track Just Get Out of My Life. Following last years' disappointment, they will be hoping for a different outcome with their internal choice of the group Who See who will be performing the song Igranka.

Who See, winners of the Best Adriatic Act at the Music Television Awards a couple of months back, joining the likes of former Eurovision Song Contest representative, Laka will be performing the song during the second half of the first semi-final, meaning that for the very first time in their respective history, they will not be opening the show. They will not be performing on their own having enlisted the aid of Nina Žižić in the performance of the song Igranka. The song which is a mixture of rap and dubstep might actually qualify to the final not only based on the merit that the production is relatively professional but also for the simple reason that the first semi-final is full of ballads. You can judge the song for yourself just below. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

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.
