ENISA’s would-be Eurovision 2023 song.
ENISA has announced her new single “OLÈ” would have been her Eurovision 2023 song. She has now decided to release it in time for the World Cup. She has been teasing the song over on her social media, and has revealed it will be released soon.
ENISA is familiar to those who watched the inaugural American Song Contest. She represented New York with the song “Green Light” making it to the second semi-final where she missed out on qualifying for the final. In revealing that she would have competed, she also confirmed that the country’s reason for withdrawal was due to financial difficulties.
Montenegro’s Eurovision Journey
As an independent nation, Montenegro debuted in 2007 with Steven Faddy’s “Ajde, kroci”. This began a string of non-qualifications, until their first appearance in a Grand Final in 2014. Montenegro’s best result came in 2015 with Knez’s “Adio”, scoring 44 points and placing 13th. Their most recent appearance in the Contest was in 2022, when Vladana finished in 17th place in the semi-final with 33 points with her song “Breathe”.
