The Montenegrin public broadcaster previously internally selected Vladana Vučinić to fly the Montenegrin flag at Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. Tonight, the song was revealed by the broadcaster and is available to listen to at the link below.
ABOUT VLADANA VUČINIĆ
Vladana Vučinić is 35 years old and was born in Podgorica. She studied music and plays the piano and guitar. Her first single was released in 2003 “Ostaces mi vjena ljubav” and in 2004 the second under the name of “Noc”, which was a great success in Montenegro. In 2010, she released her first and only full English album, “Sinner City”.
During 2005 and 2006, she participated in the preselection of Montenegro “Montevizija” to compete at “Europjesma”, which served as a preselection for Serbia & Montenegro to select their act for Eurovision as a single country. In 2005 she failed to qualify for the final phase with “Samo moj nikad njen” and in 2006 she reached the “Europjesma” final in duet with Bojana Nenezić with the song “Željna”, obtaining the fifteenth position.
MONTENEGRO IN THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST
Before the Montenegrin independence, Montenegro participated in the Eurovision Song Contest as part of Yugoslavia and as part of Serbia & Montenegro.
Montenegro entered the contest as a single country for the first time in 2007 and took part until 2009 without reaching the Grand Final. After a two years break, the nation returned in 2011 and competed in every edition until 2019.
Montenegro has only qualified for the Eurovision Grand Final in two occasions, in 2014 with Sergej Ćetković, who finished in 19th position with the Balkan ballad “Moj Svijet“, and in 2015 with Knez and his song “Adio” reaching a thirteenth place on the scoreboard, which is the best Montenegrin position to date.
Last Montenegro’s entrant was the band Dmol singing “Heaven” in 2019 and finishing in the penultimate position of the first semifinal.
