5 December – My nights are the shackles

The Balkan nations have been a bit depleted at our favourite TV show recently. One has been absent for a few years, and some others took a turn on the substitute’s bench this year too.

As you know, Montenegro are relative newcomers to our favourite TV show. They’ve only been in it as an independent country since 2007 and has had two songs in the Grand Final. One of these comes from today’s birthday boy Ненад ‘Knez’ Кнежевић/Nenad ‘Knez’ Knežević. His is the best ever finish by his country, and might have taken so many people by surprise by doing better than Montenegro’s song in 2014. Nevertheless, Knez got decent scores in his semi-final, and then one maximum – among others – in the final.

Knez is 56 today.

Срећан рођендан, Кнез!
