Before Junior EurovisionEdit

On 2 August 2005, it was announced that Serbia and Montenegro were to make their debut at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005,[1] at the Ethias Arena in Hasselt, Belgium on 26 November 2005.[2] The national broadcasters Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) and Radio Televizija Crne Gore (RTCG) who are members of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) was responsible for their debut participation in what would become the one and only time they would competed as a nation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest,[3] prior to the Montenegrin independence referendum in 2006.[4]

Following the dissolution of Serbia and Montenegro, both would go on to compete at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest as Serbia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest from 2006,[5] and Montenegro in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest from 2014.[6] Neustrašivi učitelji stranih jezika went on to being Serbia's first participant in 2006 as an independent nation,[5] whilst child-duo Maša Vujadinović and Lejla Vulić represented Montenegro in 2014.[7]
