Jana Mirković[edit]

Jana Mirković (Montenegrin: Јана Мирковић; born April 2000 in Podgorica, Montenegro) is a Montenegrin singer. She attended dance and ballet schools, and can play the piano and violin. On 1 July 2015, Mirković was announced as the Montenegrin representative in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 with the song "Oluja". The song was written by the same team who composed Serbia's winning Eurovision entry "Molitva".[3][4] Jana came 13th in the final with 36 points.

Having attended music school from a young age, Jana is not only a competent singer - but also plays the piano and violin as well! She is currently in the first grade at Podgorica's gymnasium, and has already had a lot of success in performing at international music festivals, winning several awards along the way. When she's not studying, Jana also attends the UMS Talent School, as well as special classes for ballet, dance, and TV journalism. The latter is no surprise, given that Jana has already hosted a children's television show in her home country!

In her free time, Jana likes to hang out with her friends and family, and enjoys the beautiful Montenegrin seaside and countryside. She says that she doesn't need much to be happy, only her honest smile, a flower, hearing her favourite songs on the radio or and seeing other people's happiness.

Jana enjoys listening to her favourite female artists, Jennifer Lopez and Barbra Streisand. She also loves the songs of Sergej Ćetković and Knez, both of whom have represented Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest, and have sent Jana support for this Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Jana's Eurovision hero is Måns Zelmerlöw!

Voting[edit]

The voting during the final consisted of 50 percent public televoting and 50 percent from a jury deliberation. The jury consisted of five music industry professionals who were citizens of the country they represent, with their names published before the contest to ensure transparency. This jury was asked to judge each contestant based on: vocal capacity; the stage performance; the song's composition and originality; and the overall impression by the act. In addition, no member of a national jury could be related in any way to any of the competing acts in such a way that they cannot vote impartially and independently. The individual rankings of each jury member were released one month after the final.

Following the release of the full split voting by the EBU after the conclusion of the competition, it was revealed that Montenegro had placed fourteenth with the public televote and twelfth with the jury vote. In the public vote, Montenegro scored 23 points, while with the jury vote, Montenegro scored 21 points.

Below is a breakdown of points awarded to Montenegro and awarded by Montenegro in the final and the breakdown of the jury voting and televoting conducted during the final.
