The Montenegrin national broadcaster has confirmed it will revamp “Heaven” ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.
RTCG has confirmed today that “Heaven”, the song that D-Moll will perform for Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will undergo a revamp. The song will undergo changes to the arrangement of the song before the contest in Tel Aviv.
The General Manager of RTCG, Božidar Šundić commented:
If the structure of the song changes, then it will not fit the video of the Montevizija performance. If we keep the same pace and verse/chorus structure, then we can leave the live performance video as a preview. This way, we can save something
The broadcaster confirmed that D-Moll will go on a promotional tour ahead of the contest in Tel Aviv. The broadcaster is planning for the group to attend the promotional events in Amsterdam, Madrid and London before the contest in May.
Overall RTCG is happy with how Montevizija 2019 was organised this year, with the General Manager adding;
The whole team, especially technical, production, and scriptwriters, have done everything to make this year’s Montevizija better adapted to the viewer, which is the goal of the television
D-Moll is formed of six members; Tamara Vujačić, Mirela Ljumić, Ivana Obradović, Rizo Feratović and Željko Vukčević. The group topped the first round of Montevizija yesterday evening, becoming one of two acts competing in the super final. They went on to win in the super final with 68% of the public vote.
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.
