ESC 2012, semi-final 1 - Montenegro

Rambo Amadeus, born June 14, 1963, is the stage name of the Belgrade-based Montenegrin singer-songwriter Antonije Pušić, who is a self-titled musician, poet, and media manipulator. He is a popular phenomenon on the music scenes of the former Yugoslavia since the late 80s.

His songs combine satirical lyrics on the nature of common people and silliness of local politics. He uses a mixture of musical styles including jazz and rock, and self-conscious ironic wit. His stage name itself is made from John Rambo and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Known also as a charming king of jovial pop, his concerts are never mere repetitions of recorded songs, but a mixture of musical improvisation and humor exploiting all aspects of human nature in a crude manner. Some fans compare his style and career path with those of Frank Zappa or Captain Beefheart.

Rambo Amadeus will represent Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan with the song Euro Neuro.
