RTCG, the public broadcaster of Montenegro, will launch the nation’s search for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 next week.
By the end of next week, the Montenegrin selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin will be launched. The format that RTCG will use to determine the nation’s Eurovision entrant has not yet been announced.
Montenegrin entrants were internally selected between 2009 and 2017 but on their first two and two most recent participations, the national final Montevizija was used.
Montenegro last participated in the 2019 contest, with the band D-Mol who represented the country with the song “Heaven”. They finished up placing 16th in the first Semi-Final with 46 points.

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.
