Montenegro will premiere its entry for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest on 4th March according to public broadcaster RTCG. After an internal selection it was decided that the group Highway would represent the country in Stockholm in May. 

Highway consists of Petar Tošić, Marko Pešić and Luka Vojvodić. The group became popular after they finished fourth in the talent show X Factor Adria. Earlier this week the group shot the official video for their entry in a studio in Belgrade. Director Julian Wood revealed that the concept used on-stage in Stockholm will be similar to that seen in the video.  

"We want to show all the energy we have as a band. That's what you this video is supposed to show, including some effects, which fit well with the format of our song", Highway member Marko Pešić said.

Montenegro qualified for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest in both 2014 and 2015. Last year the country finished 13th, its best result to date.
