It had been planned to create a return of their national final selection show ‘Montevizija’, but this plan was axed last October due to COVID-19 and for financial reasons.  The Head of Entertainment for Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG, Ivan Maksimović, said at the time:

“The first reason is related to the costs involved in organizing the competition, and it is a large amount that, for example, can be redirected to other projects. The second reason concerns the Coronavirus pandemic. We do not know what will be and how it will be, so no, we would not like to get into a situation where we are exposed to several months of efforts in that environment and then the competition will be uncertain.”
