MontenegroSong 2007, the Montenegrin National Final, was the first edition of MontenegroSong and was hosted by Dražen Bauković, Olivera Simunović. There were ten competing songs, all in Serbian, with the order of performance determined by a draw that took place on 18 February where all the songs were performed in a live show. MontenegroSong 2007 was held on 25 February 2007 at the RTCG Studio in Podgorica. The interval acts included performances by Dmitry Koldun (Belarus 2007), No Name (Serbia and Montenegro 2005 and Montevizija 2005 winner) and Alenka Gotar (Slovenia 2007).[1] The winner, Stevan Faddy with the song 'Ajde, kroči, was chosen by tele-voting and therefore represented Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki.
