Montenegro’s trying to be respectable in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest with Knez’s “Adio”, but are they forgettable?
It’s been interesting to watch the transition Montenegro’s been attempting in the Eurovision Song Contest the past few years. They’ve gone from sending an entry with a humor to it that comes from knowing your country is small enough that it likely won’t get the votes it needs to win (see: “Euro Neuro”, “Igranka”) to one that’s clearly trying to be middle of the road enough to make it to the finals (see last year’s “Moj Svet”, which did in fact crack the finals and actually got some 12-points from its nearby neighbors). They’re finally getting the results they want, but the last year’s entry was completely bland to my ears. How does this year’s compare? Have they finally found a middle ground?
