#ESC2016 #EOT weekly report #2: Montenegro's Highway and UK's new way of selection

Posted by Pedro.Eurovisionontop on October 4, 2015 at 4:10 AM Comments comments (0)


Welcome once again to our new and weekly report about the Eurovision Song Contest 2016.


This week we will give you an update about what happend during the last week:

 

  • UK changes the way of selection

  • Montenegro's Highway to Eurovision

 


1. UK


 

The last years at Eurovision haven't been very successful for UK. In the last 10 years the united kingdom didn’t united a lot of points on the scoreboard. There were two last places and seven ranking in the last 5 places on the scoreboard.


And it didn’t have matter in the last years, if the UK have sent big names of the music like Bonnie Tyler (2013) and Engelbert (2012) or modern electro music (Electro Velvet – 2015).


This year BBC announced that they will change the way of selection. And not just that, they will go for the biggest song search ever in the history of the UK participation at the Eurovision.

 

  • The selection is open for amateurs, professional or even superstars

  • Till 20th November 2015 everyone(>18 years) can send a video of an own song

  • The British fan club (OGAE) which counts more than 1000 members, will be invited to have a look on the shortlist

  • Also the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) will contribute with suggestions of songs

  • Hugh Goldsmith will act as music consultant

  • Out of all of this there will be a final shortlist, which will be presented to a professional panel and the public

  • At the end the public will be asked to choose the UK entree for 2015!

 


 A long and complex way to choose the right song. So all the best of luck to the land of pop!

 

Good luck UK!


 

2. MONTENEGRO - HIGHWAY

 


Once again the selection is made out of a former participant of an internationally known casting show. The Balkan version of X Factor (X Factor Adria) isn’t for the first time the source for participants. Last years representative of FYR Macedonia Daniel Kajmakoski was a former winner of this show.


 

Montenegro had in 2015 the best results ever, making a 13th place. Perhaps they got the taste of success at this competition and now want to try to choose the highway to the top!


 

The trio / band Highway didn’t win the casting show but got the 4th place. The internal selection was made by experts of the national broadcaster RTCG.


 

The three young men Petar, Marko and Luka will have a high expectation after two good years of Montenegro at Eurovision.


 

We will see, if they can convince the European public as they did at the X Factor Adria including a jury, with a very good known Eurovision artist, Zeljko Joksimovic.

KNEZ: we should all be proud of who we are and accept each others

Posted by Pedro.Eurovisionontop on April 29, 2015 at 7:00 AM Comments comments (0)
Last year Montenegro for the first time in their Eurovision history made it to the final. It was a balkan ballad which made it possible. This year KNEZ was very early announced as the the one representing Montenegro. Afterwards it took a long time until the song was known. It was one of the last once being released. And it was a big surprise. Once again the successful balkan singer and song writer Zeljko Joksimovic will participate at the contest with an own song, but this time performed by Knez for Montenegro. Eurovision on top spoke to Knez to speak about this upcoming experience and what his goals and targets for Vienna are.

1. KNEZ - would you like to introduce yourself? Who is the private person behind this name? Sure. My name is Nenad Knezevic, while my stage name/nickname comes from my last name, Knez. I am into regional ex YU music scene for more than 20 years now. My father, Mili Knezevic, was a musician and composer, so he introduced me to the magical world of music. That’s how was created my first, Montenegro band, which gathered the best musicians back then. My solo career started 1992. and since then I have released 10 music albums, music videos, had concerts and gigs, and performed at all regional and national music festivals. Privately I am guy who loves his family and friends, I do sports and trying to leave healthy life, I like great food and good wine.

2. What is the music Knez stands for?
I love music. The music I sing is mostly pop, pop-rock. My first album name ‘’Kao magija” (Like a magic) was pop, while the latest album The magic of Balkans, is different music style I used to do. It’s very interesting change, more traditional sound from Balkans, let’s say it is urban ethno jazz, which sound shows cultural heritage of Balkan region and its countries. For my Eurovision song, Adio, I wanted it to be music of my origins and origins of many people from Balkan region. For me Eurovision is great place to show peace of yourself, where you come from, who you are and what you want to tell to Europe and world.

3. Did you follow the Eurovision Song Contest in the past?
Of course I did, never missed it. Sometimes I watched it with family, friends, sometimes I was on tour or had a concert in that period, but I always watched it on youtube after. Eurovision is great festival to all people who love unity, music and entertainment. It was my biggest dream to perform on Eurovision stage and it is happening right now.

4. Last year Montenegro did it for the first time to the final. Do you think you will be able to repeat that?
I truly believe so. With the great song we have, great team and support from people around Europe, I think Montenegro can enter in final once again.

5. Can you tell something about the song, what is your point of view about the song and the lyrics?
This is very emotional song with very deep meaning. Adio is the song about endless love, love that will continue no matter of time and space. But if your body isn’t in presence here, that is something we humans can’t deal easily with. Lyrics tell that your partner who is in hurt is leaving our world, but since your love is timeless, you pray nature around you, those mountains and rivers not to take your partner away. But lot of times, illness people suffer from can be stronger than any will, any love, any hope, so all you hear is Adio at the end… goodbye

6. Last year there weren't just good reactions about Conchita Wurst‘s victory. What was your thought, when you heard that Austria won the contest?
I love the song! It’s such a powerful music and lyrics with great message. Eurovision is all about diversity and it’s a song contest. But you know, we should all be proud of who we are and accept each others. We are all humans and we should only judge people by who they are as a persons, are they good or bad to us. Everything else is just fine.


7. What are your plans for the time after Eurovision?
I plan to release my album and promote it. I wish to do some concerts in my region and in Europe.


Eurovision on top will accompany Knez in Vienna and see, if his song writer Zeljko once again will be a guarantee for a ticket to the final and a good ranking. Knez for sure surprised with the kind of song he participate at the contest and perhaps there will be more surprises to come. Eurovision on top will see, if yes and keep you informed about that.

First semifinal - part 5

Posted by Eurovision On Top on May 2, 2014 at 6:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Portugal

The comeback of Portugal is made of tropical sounds, something that cannot be strange due to the relation of the western country in Europe to South America and Africa! A catchy song and original somehow! The dress is not the one Suzy will use in the semifinal! After three ballads and  approaching the end of the show, this song can be something different and can make the difference!

Netherlands

This is the immage that all the Americans will have while dreaming with a supposed American Vision Song Contest. A very good song as we know! Ilse de Lange no need to prove anything to confirm that she is one of the best singers in this contest. For a ballad, this is something totally different that can be a surprise for everyone - but it is also a risk! The stage colours creates a nice environment that can be sometimes reminded to a Tim Burton film.

Montenegro

No surprises! A very good singer and a nice typical performance with a perfect song! Unfortnally, Montenegro is alone with the jury as the only ally. The doubts of reaching the final are increasing.
