Serbia & Montenegro: Eurovision Conflict

Ed at Balkan Baby writes that Serbia and Montenegro seriously disagree on who should represent their country at this year's Eurovision Song Contest: No Name, a Montenegrin boy-band, or a Serbian band called Flamingoes? “Serbian Prime Minister Zoran Zivkovic said that this music competition had caused ‘much more excitement last night than the death of Slobodan Milosevic’. […] And just to fully draw the battle lines, the Eurovision song contest final will be held the day after the referendum which will probably see Montenegro vote for independence from Serbia.”
