Never knowingly butch, Slavko Kalezic will be trying to out camp that incredulous Adok 3 minutes, when he Eurocamps to "Space" in 2017, another dance-lite number but surprisingly one of the better ones. It's here
Blurghh. The Montegrins will again have to console themselves with looking to their nieghbours in the Final, as Highway performing "The Real Thing" will not qualify. I'm absolutely certain of this and I don't mind giving you the nod as you to me are everything. It's here
Knez is a notable ballardeer from the Balkans (or perhaps Mongo?) and is performing what is increasingly the same tedious Montenegrin song from last year. It has been called "Adio" and can be heard here
Sergej Cetkovic, will be the sole Balkan ballardeer of 2014 with "Moj Svijet" a deeply unsurprising effort. I can see exactly how this is going to go, and you can try to project here
Who See, a hip-hop duo in yellow pac-a-macs have the stand out different track of the year, "Igranka". The video is a particularly saucy affair and further strengthens the reputation of Montenegrin ESC originality. Wish it well here
Should for whatever reason Rambo Amadeus manage to get through to the Final, then a wider audience will be treated to a strange "turbo-folk" experience of poor rhyming and attitude. For all it's shortcomings, this is one of the bright points of a relatively dull year. I commend "Euro Neuro" to you here

The Tourist Guide says

""Montenegro - the pearl of the Mediterranean, unique in many ways, and situated in the south of the Adriatic. There is nowhere else that you can find, in such a small place, so much natural wealth, beauty, mild beaches, clear lakes, fast rivers and gorgeous mountains - except in Montenegro. In the morning you can wake up along the beautiful Adriatic coast, have lunch on the banks of Skadar Lake, and enjoy the evening walks in the Montenegrin mountains. Montenegro is a place that cannot leave you indifferent."


"The name originates in 1326 and it is built amongst five rivers, the Zeta, Moraca, Ribnica, Cijevna and Sitnica. Most of the city was destroyed during WW II, so Podgorica is relatively new, with modern buildings at every step of the way and green spaces as well as parks. Cultural and historic monuments in and around Podgorica are Sahat-kula Adzi-pasa Osmanagica, the ruins of Nemanjica Grad, and remnants of the city of Doclea, Stara Varos, and Vezirov."

Police in a town in Montenegro have had dozens of complaints about naked men taking late-night walks in temperatures as low as minus 15C.
Police in Berane say the men were fully naked and appear to emerge only at night - usually in pairs.
Officers say they have no idea who the nudists are and have increased patrols in the area to try and catch them.
Local media speculated the men could be walking naked either after losing a drunken bet or for health reasons.
