Montenegro debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007. Previously it participated as part of Yugoslavia (both the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia from 1961 to 1991 and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1992) and Serbia and Montenegro (from 2004 to 2006).

The 2005 entrants from Serbia and Montenegro, No Name, were from Montenegro, as were the 1983 and 1984 entrants for Yugoslavia.


Since Montenegro became an independent state on 21 May 2006, the nation has taken part in the Eurovision Song Contest. The country made its solo debut in the 2007 contest and so far has managed mediocre results with qualifying twice for the grand final. It contributed for some rather good results for Ex-Yugoslavia and Serbia and Montenegro managing 4th and 7th place. 2009 saw the country's third best result to date finishing 11th place in the first semi-final but it still was not enough to secure them a place in the final.

In November 2009 RTCG announced that Montenegro would withdraw from the 2010 contest, due to financial difficulties at the broadcaster.[1]

RTCG submitted an application for the 2011 contest, which was held in Düsseldorf, Germany. The potential representative for Montenegro would have been required to find sponsors to fund their participation in Germany themselves, but in December 2010 Montenegro decided not to participate in the contest on financial grounds.[2] On 20 November 2011 the head of RTCG revealed that Montenegro would participate in the 2012 contest to be held in Baku; he also went on to say that he saw Montenegro at every Eurovision Song Contest to come.[3]

For the next years after 2007, Montenegro have been starting the first semi-final for three years in a row until 2013 when they were allocated to the second half of the first semi-final.

In 2014, Montenegro qualified for the Grand Final for the first time in its history with Sergej Ćetković's "Moj svijet".

In 2015, Montenegro qualified for the Grand Final for the second time with Knez who performed song Adio, composed by Zeljko Joksimovic. Song Adio has two versions, on English and French language. English, and managed their best result since, finishing in the 13th place.lyrics are written by Milica Fajgelj, Nicole Rodriguez, Tami Rodriguez and Dunja Vujadinovic
