The four juries were; public vote, radio station representatives, international and Montenegrin expert jury. These four juries selected the two acts who will compete in round two.
In the second round the two acts returned to the Monetvizija stage for a second time. The act that will represent Montenegro was then decided entirely by public voting.
The show also featured a guest performance from Hari Mata Hari, who finished 3rd for Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 will be a guest performer.
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.
