Montenegro Did Not Make It To The Eurovision Final And People Are Pissed

This is such a sad twist.

This is Slavko Kalezić. He was representing Montenegro with his song "Space" at the Eurovision Song Contest.

Each contestant has a profile on the Eurovision website. His says: "I want to show [the] world my performing skills and spread my voice about my life mission. We can be as one. Everything is about strong and positive energy!"

As there are so many countries in Eurovision, many countries have to qualify for the final first. Kalezić sang at the first semi-final this evening.

"Space" was one of the most recognisable songs of the Eurovision Song Contest this year.

And his performance was just inspired.
