Montenegro 2022: Vladana Vučinić

Montenegro: Vladana Vučinić to Eurovision 2022

The Montenegrin public broadcaster has internally picked Vladana Vučinić to represent Montenegro at Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin

This morning, the musical editor of RTCG and head of the broadcaster's Eurovision selection jury, Stana Šalgo, revealed that the 10-member jury has chosen Vladana Vučinić for Eurovision Song Contest 2022.

The announcement took place on the morning show Dobro jutro Crna Goro, after lots of teasing on Social Media.

Earlier this month, the Montenegrin public broadcaster RTCG announced that they have received 30 potential submissions to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 after an open competition of submissions.

The song that Vladana will perform at Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin is titled "Breathe" and will be revealed in February, but in a teaser video posted earlier, Vladana revealed some of the ideas behind the yet-to-be-announced song:

– I know that life is in both black and white keys, and everyday is a brand new song. That’s why it’s interesting. We only realise what it means to fight for a life when it begins to hurt, and when the cure is the only mission. This is my song, my cure for Europe, and for the world.
