Montenegro | Song submissions launched for Eurovision 2019
The Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG have today begun their search for the song that will represent them at The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv. All interested singers and songwriters have 30 days from today to submit their entries to the broadcaster.
Once all of the songs have been submitted, a panel of juries at RTCG will listen to all the songs anonymously, without knowing who the composer or singer of the song is. For all of the songs that make it past this first round, the jury will then have the opportunity to see details of the songs, including the lyrics and information about the songwriter and performer(s).
Once they have all this information, the jury will then score each song. They can award up to 50 points for the composition, up to 30 points for the lyrics and up to 20 points for the production potential of each song. At this moment, is unknown whether the song with the highest score will automatically win the right to represent Montenegro at Eurovision 2019, or whether they will host a national final with all of the highest scoring songs.
