Montenegro will premiere its entry for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest tonight! After an internal selection in September 2015, Montenegrin public broadcaster (RTCG) decided that the group Highway would represent the country in Stockholm in May. Join us and watch a two-hour special broadcast live from Bečići on Eurovision.tv. The show starts at 20:00 and you can watch it here.
Highway consists of a lead singer Petar Tošić, guitarists and back-up singers Marko Pešić and Luka Vojvodić, and keyboardist Bojan Jovović. The group became popular in the Balkans after they finished fourth in the talent show X Factor Adria. The group shot the official video for their entry The Real Thing in a studio in Belgrade last month and director Julian Wood revealed that the concept used on-stage in Stockholm would 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.
RTCG has prepared more surprises for tonight's two-hour TV show than just a premiere of Montenegrin Eurovision entry. "The highlight of the show is, of course, Highway's song for Stockholm," said Sarija Vulić, the Head of Press.
However, this will also be an opportunity for the guys to introduce themselves to a much broader audience. For the first time, Petar, Marko, Luka and Bojan will present their song, but also say something about themselves, about their music and careers, Vulić added.
During the special broadcast, TV viewers across Europe and beyond will notice some well-known Eurovision faces. Besides Knez, who represented Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest last year, Highway will also welcome a few guests from the region, including some Junior Eurovision Song Contest stars.
