On Thursday night, one of the most glamorous parties took place as Montenegro’s delegation and tourist board held a celebration for Slavko Kalezić and invited the other Balkan countries’ artists along for the ride! Slavko, Jana Burčeska (Macedonia), Tijana Bogićević (Serbia), Jacques Houdek (Croatia), Lindita Halimi (Albania) and Omar Naber (Slovenia) were all at the gala, held in Kyiv’s Opera Hotel, to perform their Eurovision entries and meet with delegates, officials and selected press. Alyosha (Belarus 2013) was a special guest performer at the show. Members of #escYOUnited were at the event last night to check it out – take a look at our coverage below!
