Andrea Demirović, the representative of Montenegro in 2009, has revealed new details about “Ja sam ti san”, the song she hopes will take her back to the Eurovision stage for a second time.
Ten years on from representing Montenegro at the Eurovision Song Contest, Andrea has revealed more about the entry she hopes will take her to Tel Aviv. Speaking to CDM.me, Andrea revealed her surprise at being selected as one of the five artists to compete in Montevizija 2019. She explained that:
"I'm a little surprised that such a modern style has passed, because I think this song is radically different from all the previous tracks that Montenegro has so far represented in Europe."
Andrea believes that, should she make it to the contest in Tel Aviv, she has a far greater chance of making it to the finals than back in 2009.
"With the experience of one Eurosong behind me, the singing experience and the creative time I've gathered, I think I would now have a much greater chance of going to the finals than in 2009 in Moscow. It is interesting that there are many cases where returnees have achieved good results, and fans of the competition love such stories."
Since her participation in 2009 the singer revealed she has been approached by various songwriters, but this year she couldn’t turn down what she was offered;
"I only accepted this year, because it was actually a tender she could not refuse. Such a song appears once every ten years."
The demo version was done by Primoz Poglajen, Adam Featherstone and Michael James Down, and for the final version of the song, another Englishman whose identity has been kept secret for now. Check out Andrea's previous Eurovision experience below - where she placed 11th with 'Just Get Out Of My Life'.
