“It’s a really amazing feeling when something that you have been working on really hard is finally there, being done”, Sergej Ćetković (38) said after a lot of time spent in the studio and all the shootings across the country, where he was filming some of the scenes for a video in the last few weeks. “I would describe it as a unique moment, where you finally realise that all the efforts you gave in order to achieve something and all the time you have invested, finally get a real meaning, a real sense.” Sergej is a very popular pop singer in Balkans for more than 20 years, but he doesn’t really want to reveal much before the premiere scheduled for this Sunday. Not even the name of the song! “There are two things I could say. First, you could describe it as a Eurovision song, but at the same time it represents me and my style. I am really excited but I don’t have any fears, because I think that the audience will accept this song very well”, explains this year’s representative of Montenegro, who will perform in the First Semi-Final on the 6th of May in Copenhagen.
Singing in English or Montenegrin?
Sergej confirmed that his song was recorded in Belgrade, Serbia. It has two versions, as it’s being recorded in both, Montenegrin and English language. However, he still hasn't made the final decision as to which one he will perform in Denmark.
There were a lot of shootings in the past few weeks. Also the one for the Eurovision postcard from Montenegro. “Our wish was to film this year’s postcard in Cetinje (old Royal capital of Montenegro), one of the most recognisable surroundings and cities in our country”, Sergej said. “Coincidence or not, we have always chosen some other places for those short films. So, we wanted to change that this time.”

While talking about the video, Sergej reveals that he really enjoyed some of the shootings, as well as inhabitants. “We experienced exceptional hospitality, everywhere we went to. This video is also going to be beautiful postcard from Montenegro”, he added. Filming began in Karuč (city near Skadar lake) and continued on Žabljak, Bar and Ulcinj.
Besides a premiere of the song, those who will be following the LIVE webcast (also here on Eurovision.tv) on Sunday, 9th of March at 21:00 CET (a day after Sergej's birthday), RTCG announced that during the broadcast, some “Making-of” material will be aired as well.
