Vanje

You wouldn’t think you could bugger up a solid, Balkan ballad but Montenegro are doing their best to. Vanje is wearing the oddest jacket; it’s long on one side, short on the other, and looks like it’s made out of turquoise bubble wrap. There’s a pianist and four backing singers striking those earnest Balkan ballad poses. They’re in white floor-length gowns, kind of like frumpy bridesmaids.

Vocally it’s great, but visually it’s just a little bit strained.
