I feel like you either love this or despise it, but I somehow find myself in the middle. The song itself is actually really catchy and stands out in a pool of ballads but all of the other elements are just too distracting. If they tame down the staging a bit in Kiev , I feel like the public would actually vibe to the song.

Now we are talking This country is trying really hard. This singer and song is a good attempt. Weird enough to have a chance of qualifying. The song isn't the best I have heard but sang by this guy and maybe with a more eccentric stage performance could do ok.

Yes yes a very fresh and catchy song from the Montenegrins this year. Glad to be guy.... the singer propose us a new version of the Bosnian entry of 2004... With more refined abs ...eventually. The contest needs this kind of entries, mostly this year that we all tend to go to bed early. Do you thing that it is into his intentions to bring us there? Naughty Slavko.... I adore you...Hajde da ludujemo in Kiev .....

I was missing this pop crime songs, now I can enjoy this small guilty pleasures so letís dance! I donít worry about the staging Ė Slavko will be the queen! Letís not talk about how important this tune for the global music scene (itís not), it just doesnít matter.

Deliciously scandalous and provocative and if a prize were to be given for the most raunchy and risquť lyrics, 'Space' would win it hands down. Slavko gives us the club song of the 2017 contest with strong disco influences (this years 'In The Disco' ?) This dancefloor filler will blow the roof off the arena and bring everyone to their feet. His English is hard to understand and it is a bit too out there to win but great to have this funky and daring number in the competition and Montenegro are certainly Celebrating Diversity with a smile.

Khal Drogo turned fabulous. Is that his own hair? I can't imagine how they will transfer this music video on stage LOL! The song might not have the most intellectual lyrics, but this is a catchy disco tune and I actually enjoy it.

7.5

 

Frederico

Oh, now this is quite good in all its weirdness. This should easily qualify. I think itís quite reminiscent of 90s music with a little contemporary twist. Go Montenegro !

6.5

 

Josť

I don't like so much the look of Slavko, other than that, I found the song with good rythm, little dated, but will bring fresh air to Eurovision, and surely we will see him in high positions in the final rank of this year.

Mark L

well every Eurovision needs one gay fest and this is it for 2017. Will probably do very well if he manages not to strangle himself with that ridiculous hair piece!

Melissa

Well this is a first, a dance track that doesn't leave me wanting to dance. Better luck next year Montenegro ...

Octavio

Finally a dance song. It's bizarre, weird, wonderful and perfect for Eurovision. This is the gayest song in Eurovision ever and I love it! It sure isn't forgettable.

Paul C

Another alternative song from Montenegro . I don't think it's a bad song, it's catchy but I don't see this doing well.

6.5

 

Pia

Finally NOT a ballad. Canīt say this is a favourite, but itīs not a ballad therefore I give high points .....

Roberto

A revival 70s-80s pop-dance tune, glittering and overall brilliant. However, too much of an expressive/theatrical performance could clash with its silken rhythms. Good one, but I fear some risk about the "live".

6.5

 

Roy

Anything they brought would have been an improvement on the horror of 2016. When I saw the artist, I thought maybe just a slight improvement but I was actually surprised. It is not the song I will listen to day in and out, but surely the performance will be the one to beat Ė I can already see the pony tail swinging around and getting people just to vote for that. Whether this will impress the juries is another matter, but there is far more hope for qualification this time around.

Samantha

Campy, over-the-top, unabashedly sexy fun. (And if you can't have that at Eurovision, where can you?) I might not be voting for it, but I'm so glad it's in the contest.

Andrew G

Rather good very funky and disco, this should be a good party anthem during the evening

7

 

Danny

Oh my giddy aunt! This is something else entirely. Camp doesnít even begin to describe this! The video is a very WTF moment, but the song is slightly disappointing, itís not bad, but without the video to elevate it, itís just a tad pedestrian. I hope Montenegro have a good stage act planned as thatís the only way they are going to qualify.

David B

Clunky lyrics and a dodgy accent does not a winner make. Possibly one of the catchiest entries on offer this year but it's a little too knowingly arch and camp. A guilty pleasure? Not yet but it's going that way!

5.5

 

David E

The campest thing out of the Balkans since Deen took us In The Disco and this is all shades of fabulous!  Sexy Slavko certainly knows how to whip his audience into a frenzy with his massively long and girthy hair extension.  Final Please! 

8.5

 

Dean

Oh my.  Campastic 70s disco craziness. Europe wonít know whatís hit it when Slavko takes to the stage.  Think will be really good fun to dance to, and I really hope this qualifies. Fun, fun, fun.

7

 

Eddie

Great they are trying some different to their normal sound. It's old school disco with a modern feel. It will be a crowd pleaser and I hope his live vocals are great. Hope it makes the final.

7

 

Edward

My favourite entry this year―whatís not to like?!  OK, itís a gay floor filler with use of leather and hair as a gimmick, but itís also a good song.  The chorus has disco influence with an interesting rising chord sequence and is exciting at a relatively slow tempo using countermelodies.

10

 

Gary

Ok, likely prize for weirdest presentation assured, this could go either way. Does the guy not own a shirt? The disco stomper has appeal to this old timer and Iím sure it will go down a storm in euro parties for years to come. It could be powerful on stage, it could be tacky on stage. Nice for something different from ME though.

Joe  

The video is interesting and the song itself isn't that bad, but the whole thing looks a bit of a mess.

6

 

Kevin

Slavko Kalezic presents this disco number, what a refreshing change for this year, this song is my guilty pleasure, fresh and upbeat, in semi-final one, surrounded by ballads letís hope we have an finalistÖ Big Big Personality!

9

 

Lloyd

Disco meets dance floor with trashy slut pop this song is definitely out there and would be many peoples guilty pleasure.

Mark M

An understated and unassuming entry from Montenegro this year .  It's a bit too much for me and I hate his hair.

4.5

 

Martin

Positives first - this adds to the diverse nature of the entries in 2017, "Space" is superbly uptempo and humorously packed full of euphemisms within the lyrics.  If Slavko persists with the poses, pouts and semi-nakedness in Kyiv, however, laughter at him instead of votes for him will be the order of the day...

4.5

 

Matt

 

Probably the most 'interesting' hair this year.  It starts off quite slow and then gets rather more foot-tapping.  Yes one we can all boogie to but the song itself isn't anything special

4

 

Nico

If you ignore the in your face frivolity of the video, there's a rather enjoyable song in there, that would be great to have in the final. There's shade's of old Dean in the disco in there somewhere. If they can balance the edgy with the camp, this could be as fab as it strives to be. But, it also has the potential to go terribly pear shaped.

7

 

Sally-Ann

I suspect I'm not the only fan to have breathed a sigh of relief when our lad with the pigtail unleashed the chorus:  a pure, joyous, proper Eurovision tune as its cheesiest best.  Surely a travesty if they don't qualify.
