Montenegro: D-Moll – Heaven

Over in Montenegro they've gone and selected D-Moll with the song Heaven. All I can hear is the word 'falling' repeating over and over and over in my head during this painful 3-minutes. The diction is bad, the vocals are off key, and the throwback 1990s Stock Aitken Waterman-inspired arrangement is dire. There is nothing to review here other than to say Montenegro won't qualify and are probably a good bet for last place in semi-final 1.

  1. Is this the worst song to go to Eurovision in the last decade?

  2. I think this would have been top 5 in 1999 the song isnt that terrible, just outdated.

    • I agree – more dated than terrible. The poor quality television production didn’t help nor did the staging (was that a budget version of Sergey Lazarev’s ‘wall’). Also, the song is basically a duet not a group song as performed.

      I’m sure it will look and hopefully sound a whole lot better in Tel Aviv and that might elevate it from Gav’s ‘Hell’ to a more respectable ‘Purgatory’

      Okay, I’m trying to find nice things to say, but it’s a surefire Non-Qualifier.

  3. It’s as certain a NQ as Iceland was last year really, I don’t mind it but there is nothing about this that would make me want to pick up the phone and vote. If this was representing a western county I’d give this a decent shot at Nil pointe from the public at least but with some diaspora + Neighbour votes it might scrape enough to avoid last, dead certainty for bottom 2 or 3.

  4. Have you ever given a lower rating in history of ESC TIPS Gav??

  5. Sorry for spamming in this article, but I could not find another good place:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear Gavster! Wish you many lucrative bets and lots of fun. We appreciate and love your work!

    • Oh thanks. I’ve no idea how you knew other that the Melfest preview.
      There will be no coverage this weekend, just retweets of the main announcements.
      Glad you enjoy the site. I don’t have as much time this year, so focussing on the main events only. As ever, thank you for reading and taking part.
