Montenegro: RTCG opens song submissions for Eurovision 2019 national selection
Montenegro’s national broadcaster , RTCG , opened this evening the window for song submissions for the Eurovision 2019 national selection.
Following last week’s administrative council’s decision , the national broadcaster launched today the song submission process. From today and for 30 days acts and composers that are interested in representing the country in the forthcoming Eurovision can submit their songs to the national broadcaster. This year’s national selection process consists of two rounds:
Durng the first phase a special RTCG panel of experts will listen to all submitted songs and review them without having access to the ID of the composer or artist. If the song manages to go through this first round, the panel will have after access to the whole file submitted by the composer or artist. Each file must include the lyrics of the song, details on the composer or artist with their biographies.
Then the songs will be evaluated receiving points according to the following criteria:
- Composition – Up to 50 points
- Lyrics – Up to 30 points
- Production potential of the composition – Up to 20 points
However it hasn’t been year clear if the song that will receive the most votes will be internally selected by RTCG or will go through a televised show, like Montevizija.
