Slovenia is one of the countries that has been under-rated on a number of occasions at the Eurovision Song Contest with their best result thus far being a seventh place achieved by Darja Svajger in 1995 with the track ‘Prisluhni Mi’ and also in 2001 at the hands of Nusa Derenda with the track ‘Energy’. The selection process took place over a number of weeks with the search for the artist being quite intense. In the long run though, two acts made it and had to perform three songs each with Eva Boto and the track ‘Verjamem’.
The show was somewhat prolonged and at times slightly boring but the interval acts were quite interesting to watch, especially Emilja Kokic who won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song ‘Rock Me’. There was also of the inclusion of the French representative; Anggun who will be singing the song ‘Echo (You and I)’. The acts presented songs which were very different from each other but all eyes were on the tracks that would eventually reach the super-final. The favourite had always been Eva Boto but following the surprising result in The Netherlands, there had been the possibility that the twins could actually finish on top but this was not meant to be. Slovenia will compete in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
