D mol takes Eurovision 2019 to 'Heaven' during first rehearsal

Posted

Montenegro is represented by the vocal six-piece band called D mol who have just arrived at Expo Tel Aviv for the first rehearsal of 'Heaven', their song for the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. All 6 singers harmonise well together and also have solo moments to shine. All singers wear white clothes that make them shine bright in contrast to the dark backdrop used during their performance.

D mol will perform second for Montenegro in the first Semi-Final of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest on Tuesday 14 May at Expo Tel Aviv in Israel.

Željko, Emel, Tamara, Ivana, Mirela and Rizo are D mol, a young Montenegrin vocal group of 6 singers that was formed at the private music school of Daniel Alibabic. Alibabic, who acts as the group's mentor, is a former member of No Name, the band that represented Serbia & Montenegro's at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv.

What happens on stage?

The 6 members of D mol are wearing different suits, but in the same colour and material: white and patterned. Some of them are also sporting deep red details on different parts of their outfits, reminding us of the colour of Montenegro's flag.

The band start their performance in different places on the stage: Ivana and Tamara to the right, Mirela, Emel and Rizo to the left and Željko in the centre and they harmonise as they make their way to the middle of the stage where they then form a circle and stay close as the vocals gain in power. By the end of the song they support Mirela who is about to fall from from heaven.

Did you know?

D mol recently had their heritage analysed by our Presenting Partner MyHeritage. Rizo Feratović, already found out from research into North Macedonia's Eurovision entrant Tamara Todevska that he is related to her. It turns out Emel Franca is the most Balkan of the group.
