    Montenegro trying to pull a Plushenko in the Eurovision next week

    Anyone identifying the skater up on stage in rehearsal with the band ?

    Montenegro is not predicted to do well though, Making it to the finals is iffy

    Fairly heartfelt singing, and I suspect the song could grow on me.

    As a performance though, it's kinda... disjointed. The singer seems off in his own little world and the ice skater looks ignored.

    Still, hopefully they'll make it to the finals. More exposure for figure skating is always good.

    The reactions:

    Waifu Engineer ‏@kurietachan 9h

    If I was King of Eurovision, I would require Russia to only send Dima Bilan with Plushenko and T.a.T.u. #ESC2014

    Miri ‏@MiriLaRoja 9h

    Remember when Yevgeny Plushenko won the ESC

    Daisy ‏@poppykicker 9h

    YOU CAN'T DO ICE SKATING AT EUROVISION BECAUSE RUSSIA HAD PLUSHENKO THAT ONE TIME AND YOU'RE NOT GOING TO TOP THAT #esc2014

    Waifu Engineer ‏@kurietachan 9h

    Sorry Montenegro, but Russia sent an ice skater first on 2007 and it happened to be Olympic medallist Evgeni Plushenko. #ESC2014

    Liv ✌ ‏@dodgyoj 9h

    Fun Fact: The last skater on Eurovision was for Russia's Dima Bilan back in 2008 - Evgeni Plushenko world champion ice skater

    This is a fan video from 2008 Beograd ESC victory, backstage, afterparty etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcSGFgbH1KY&t=2m10s this is the most cutest thing what I saw from Plushenko! ... Maybe he drunk a little??? Ari Zakarian kissed him.... he kissed Ari! they were so happy! he seemed more happy than after the winning the Olympic Champion title. He jumped, jumped, jumped and after he was really tired...

    ^Thanks for the Twitter reaction. And the video from the past! Does Dima rip open his shirt every time he performs Believe?

    Seems like Montenegro qualified for the finals, for the first time ever. I guess "pulling a Plushenko" worked.

    Fyi, montenegro made the final. It was beautiful to listen to and one of the few nations to sing in their native language!

    I also like when the singers sing in their native language:




    about Montenegro's performance on Eurovision Song Contest:

    Arturo ‏@tarcucciolo 16h

    I remember Plushenko ACTUALLY ice skating on ACTUAL ICE for Russia... #Eurovision

    Brad ‏@Artsybury 16h

    She is no Plushenko though #EurovisionSongContest2014

    AnnieD1981 ‏@AnnieD1981 17h

    Oh roller skater - reminds me of when Evgeny Plushenko "skated" behind the random Russian entry which won!

    Miss Karen ‏@korearian 16h

    Sorry, Montenegro, but Plushenko did it better. #Eurovision

    Dream catch me ‏@dr3amcatchm3 16h

    @Wonders_19 and now rollerblades? Bring back plushenko and his ice skating! I wonder what other gems we are to expect later

    Nandia ‏@NandiaD 16h

    Sorry Montenegro but Russia already sent Plushenko, can't top that! #eurovision

    Josieeee ‏@Dolore7 16h

    Plushenko is still the only figure skater I want to see at the ESC #Eurovision


    Julia ‏@JuliaFernbau 16h

    Russia once brought Evgeni Plushenko (ice skating mega-champion) and won the contest. Don't think is going to work this time

    Pacific Quim ‏@emotionalpedant 16h

    Remember when Plushenko skated w/the 08 Russian entry? That was amazing. *reveals self to be ice skating nerd* *SMOKEBOMB, RUN* #Eurovision

    Insomnia Heart ‏@InsomniaHeart 16h

    No one beats Plushenko and his ice skating at #Eurovision though

    Rou ‏@cherryinvain 16h

    Plushenko is one and only, it's not cool to imitate him guys.

    The Big Boss Dwarf ‏@Bossdwarf 15h

    @Rockjaw @jadavisdc Greatest #Eurovision still Yevgeny Plushenko on a 6 foot rink https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bawnwSYOCFU … that is some tiny skating.

    Juana de Hardcore ‏@MadoriB 15h

    Recordad: En Eurovisión Dima Bilan es dios, Edvin Marton Jesús y Plushenko el Espíritu Santo. Y NO LO SUPERA NI CRISTO

    I liked the touchscreen floor!

    Our commentator said that the floor was actually touch sensitive and that's why the lines drawn by her rollers were visible (but I still prefer the idea about sensors in skates )!

    Dude in black jacket: Let me say, our girls took 7 place, they're very young, they're only 17 and I want to congratulate them and their parents...
    Dude in tan jacket: But it's not 1 place! We have had lots of places... [like place 7].
    Dude in black: But they're just schoolgirls!
    Dude in red jacket: So, is it possible to be with Europe if it is like that? Our flag will rise over Donbass! (and Youtube video comments start to persuade him that he's very wrong about that)

    Don't tell anyone that I speak Russian
