Slovenia haven’t always had the best results at Eurovision, but that doesn’t stop them from trying each year to improve on their results. As we reported earlier this week, the nation were to reveal the acts that would be participating in their national final EMA, and now we know the 16 acts, some of which are familiar faces!
From the line-up we can see that former Eurovision participants ManuElla and Tanja Ribič are returning, with the former having performed in 2016 with her song Blue and Red, and the latter having performed back in 1997 with Zbudi se. There’s also a few names we’ve seen in EMA before, including BQL, KiNG FOO, Nika Zorjan and Nuška Drašček.
This year’s selection will feature a semi-final where all the acts will perform to have only 8 qualify to the national final. The eight acts will be selection by both a jury and the public vote. The jury vote has undergone a change, where before there were six regional juries, and now the juries will be composed of representatives from the radio and television industries as well as singers, composers, OGAE Slovenia and jury representatives from outside of Slovenia.
