Highway gained significant fame in their home nation after performing and competing on X Factor Adria and were a popular choice to represent Montenegro in Stockholm.  

Unfortunately they’re off to Sweden with a fairly unengaging bit of rock and, as many Eurovisionianados know, rock bands can be very hit and miss at the contest. Montenegro is a miss this year. Next.
