After two semifinals and a final with 24 songs, No Name won the ticket to Athens and thus will represent Serbia & Montenegro in the final of the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest, singing Moja ljubavi. Due to the death of Slobodan Milosevic, RTS moved the broadcast from its first channel to RTS2.

12 contestants from Serbia and 12 from Montenegro took part in a join national selection, Evropesma 2006. The Serbian favourite, Flamingos feat. Luis, received four times the maximum points from the Serbian jury, but didn't receive any points from the Montenegrin voters, while the Serbian jury awarded No Name with points. The Montenegrin jury backed No Name, that won under the same circumstances as last year, and took victory with only 4 points more than the runners-up.

As soon as the juries gave their votes and it appeared No Name was the winner, the audience left the venue immediately, while some stayed inside to throw bottles on the stage. Suprisingly, No Name left right away, while the Serbian favourites, Flamingos featuring Luis, gave a reprise of their song, Ludi letnji ples. No Name received 8 points from the televoters, the Flamingos featuring Luis 12.

In 2004, the country debuted with the Serbian �eljko Joksimović, last year, Serbia & Montenegro was represented by No Name from Montenegro. Thanks to their own result, they can enter the final again this year.
