The draw for our favourite TV show is a wonderful thing. It can make one performer weep, and another one sing. So they say. For example, look who followed Norway in every draw between 1981 and 1986.

An even more noteworthy happening was from our friends in Montenegro. In 2008, 2009 and 2012 they were not only in the first semi-final, but they opened them. Just think of the rehearsals. The first on stage on the first day. And to have your performances all done and dusted by 2115 CET on a Tuesday, knowing that you could probably go home must have got very samey by 2012. The first of the Montenegrins to be first on was today's birthday boy Стефан Филиповић/Stefan Filipović. He didn't progress any further, but he can boats that he got one maximum, making up 12 of his 23 points.

Stefan is 31 today.

Срећан рођендан, Стефан!
