Another act has been announced for Eurovision 2017, this time it’s the Montenegro entrant. Slavko Kalezic has been chosen through internal selection by RTCG, and he will be singing “Space” in Kyiv, Ukraine.
This is the second song for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest that has been announced; after Albania’s Lindita was announced the winner of the Albanian national selection; she will be singing “Botë“.
This isn’t the first time Slavko Kalezic has entered a competition. He previously took part in the first series of The X Factor Adria where he got as far as the judges houses. He then later performed as a guest during week eight of the live shows.

There has been no announcement about the song, so it could pretty much be anything, but we’re presuming it will follow his other released music, such as “Krivac” and “Feel The Love”.
If anything, we expect a choreographed dance sequence, some club beats, an up-tempo track and a confident performance. Slavko Kalezic certainly isn’t shy. He returned to The X Factor Adria live shows for series two, with “Feel The Love”.

We don’t know when “Space” will be revealed; however, we do know that it has been written by Momcilo Zekovic, who is from the popular Montenegrin group Perper. The group has been going for over 25 years, so maybe Montenegro has a shot.
So far, the country has only qualified for the final twice, in 2014 and 2015, with the latter year being their highest position; Knez with “Adio” came 13th. Could Slavko Kalezic beat that? Guess it depends on the other countries’ acts, especially considering how strong the competition for 2017 already is.
Announced acts so far are: Cyprus’ Hovig, the Netherlands’ O’G3NE, Belgium’s Blanche, Macedonia’s Jana Burceska, Azerbaijan’s Dihaj, Ireland’s Brendan Murray, Austria’s Nathan Trent, Albania’s Lindita, and Armenia’s Artsvik.
