The RTCG council has revealed the preliminary plans for selecting the 2019 Montenegrin Eurovision representative.

The council that oversees Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG (Radio Televizija Crne Gore) has announced that the submission process to find the country’s Eurovision 2019 song and artist will start within seven days.

Two changes were made in comparison to last year: songs may be performed in either one of the country’s native languages or in English, and RTCG will have 30 days to review all submissions instead of the customary 45 days.

RTCG has seven days to formally confirm Montenegro’s submission process and subsequent selection.

Singer-songwriter Vanja Radovanović (Nikšić, Montenegro, 1982) represented Montenegro at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal, with his enigmatic ballad Inje (“Frost”). He unfortunately did not go through to the Grand Final, placing 16th in the second semi-final with 40 points.
