RTCG the Montenegrin broadcaster has invited Darko Kamarit to work on Montevizija, the nations selection process for Eurovision 2019. Mr Kamarit was one of the founders of Beovizija and went on to be a producer at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade, Serbia. Mr Kamarit was also part of the Serbian delegation when Marija Serifovic won in 2007 with “Molivta”.
Speaking to RTCG, Darko Kamarit explained;
Young people are full of energy expecting a miracle to happen, our task is to enable them to get to the point of wonder, because only one miracle wins.
Work is now underway on the staging for each of the five participants performances. The running order for Montevizija 2019 is as follows:
- D-Moll – Ti
- Andrea Demirović – Ja sam ti san
- Monika Knezović – Nepogrješiva
- Ivana Popović-Martinović – Nevinost
- Nina Petković – Uzmi ili ostavi
The show will take place on February 9th, with the above five artists singing for the chance to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv, Israel. The five acts include Andrea Demirović who previously represented Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 with “Just Get Out of My Life”.
Montenegro was represented by Vanja Radovanovic at the 2018 contest in Lisbon, Portugal. With his song “Inje”, he placed 16th in the semi-final. The singer had faced calls for his withdrawal from the competition in the hours before his performance, due to comments made at a press conference.
Montenegro debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest as an independent country in 2007, and participated until 2010 when they withdrew for financial reasons. They returned to the contest in 2012, and since then have always chosen their entry internally. Montenegro failed to qualify for the grand final until 2014, when Sergej Ćetković and his song “Moj svijet” placed 19th in the final. Their best result came a year later, when Knez performed “Adio” in Vienna. They have never reached the top 10, with Knez reaching 13th out of 27 countries.
