Montenegro: Knez

Montenegro knez_4

 

 

Knez surely has the longest instrumental intro in this year’s competition, setting him up for an altogether pleasant crescendo. Knez (aka. beardless Pavarotti) is loving life on stage, double-fist-pumping and feeling the feels right up to his dramatic exit. Encore, encore! Get the man to the final, already!

All Kinds of Everything: interview with Knez


Who is your favourite Eurovision act of all time?

For Real by Athena. Great song, it motivates you, makes you feel happy.

Babushki4 vs. Lordi4

NEITHER

Dustin the Turkey. I love animals.

ABBA4 vs. Celine4

WINNER: ABBA

Because of all music they did.

What does the general public in Montenegro think of Eurovision?

People are very supportive about me and my song, Adio, composed by Zeljko Joksimovic. In general, like for the other things, opinions are different, which you have to respect. Most of the people I know are supportive and watch Eurovision; on the other side, for some this is not interesting.

Do you have any rituals before going on stage?

I don’t have any. I just try to stay focus on a moment and feel good.

How do you normally watch the Eurovision Song Contest?

I used to watch it with family and close friends. Every year we gather together and enjoy the show with some food and wine. This year they will continue the tradition without me beside [them] on the sofa, but at the Eurovision stage.

 

 

Hello Europe, it’s Camilla calling! Here are the points from the House of Apcar vote.

Montenegro: 8 points.

According to my own personal preference, I have awarded points to all 40 acts entering this year’s contest, with four countries receiving each set of points used by the EBU (12, 10, and 8-1).
