Stefan Filipović (Serbian Cyrillic: Стефан Филиповић) (born January 18, 1987 in Titograd, now Podgorica) is a Montenegrin pop singer.

Biography[edit]

He is a student in the Cetinje Music Academy. He started singing at age seven and he took part in various festivals in Montenegro and abroad. On January 27, he won MontenegroSong 2008, hence gaining the right to represent Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008, that was held in Belgrade, Serbia. The song performed was chosen internally by a 30-member jury appointed by RTCG. The winning song was titled "Zauvijek volim te" (I love you for eternity), and was made by a team of Macedonian musicians - Grigor Koprov (author), Ognen Nedelkovski (composer) and Vladimir Dojčinovski (arranger), the same trio that created the Macedonian entry in 2007 - Mojot Svet. An English version of the song was also recorded, under the title "Never forget that I love you". The song's demo version was presented on Saturday, March 8 and was rearranged until March 15. Filipović performed the song at the first semi-final of the competition, but failed to reach the final.
