The Director General of RTCG, has stated that the Montenegrin broadcaster has yet to decide on Eurovision 2020 participation.
Following reports yesterday that Montenegro would be withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, the Director General of RTCG has now challenged this. The Director General told Vijesti.me that:
I do not know who provided this information, but it cannot be accurate and official because we cannot talk about Eurovision before the RTCG Council decision. The Director-General cannot make that decision on his own, but he orders the Council at whose session it is formally decided on.
Mr Šundić added that the RTCG council is expected to meet in the next few days to take a final decision on Eurovision 2020 participation.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2020 will be held at the Rotterdam Ahoy, which was opened in 1971, and has undergone multiple refurbishments. The venue can hold up to 17,000 people and has previous experience of hosting Eurovision events.
To date, 41 countries have confirmed preliminary participation. These countries are:
- Czech Republic
- North Macedonia
- San Marino
- United Kingdom
Duncan Laurence was selected to represent the Netherlands in Tel Aviv with the song “Arcade”. He won the final with 498 points, giving the Netherlands their fifth Eurovision win and their first since 1975. Duncan’s victory also sees Eurovision returning to the Netherlands for the first time since 1980.
