RTCG, the Montenegrin national broadcaster and Montenegro will not compete at the forthcoming 2024 Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden.
Eurovision fans will be dismayed as the Balkan country will be absent from the competition for a second consecutive year. Montenegro withdrew from the competition in 2023.
Montenegro in Eurovision
Montenegro debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest as a solo country in 2007 with Stefan Faddy and is yet to win the competition. The country achieved its best results in the contest in 2015 with Knez‘s Balkan ballad Adio.
The former Yugoslav republic has only made it to the Eurovision Grand Final on two occasions, namely in 2014 and 2015. The Balkan country has competed in Europe’s favourite television show 12 times.
In 2022 Vladana represented Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin with her entry ‘Breathe‘.
