Montenegro in Eurovision
Montenegro debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 as a solo country and is yet to win the competition. The country has only made it twice to the Grand Final (2014 & 2015), whilst its best result to date is a 13th place achieved by Knez in Vienna.
In 2017, Slavko Kalezić was selected via an internal selection by the Montenegrin broadcaster to fly to Kyiv. He represented his homeland with Space; despite a catchy performance he failed to qualify to the Grand Final.
Montenegro will compete in the Second- Semi-final of the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest on 10 May in Lisbon.
