Vladislav Yakovlev, Executive Supervisor of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of the European Broadcasting Union is proud to confirm that the latest addition to the family will be none other than Slovenia. RTVSLO, a proud member of the senior edition of the Eurovision Song Contest since 1993 will be making their debut in Malta, encompassing the slogan #together which the Public Broadcasting Services decided to work upon.

"We believe that this is good news and will offer Slovenian viewers a first-class children's festival, and magnificent show in which they will be rooting for their favorite" added Mario Galunič, Head of Entertainment at RTVSLO. The national broadcaster will be selecting both the artist and the song internally, with both the entertainment and the children's departments coordinating together on the selection process.

Slovenia is the third country to debut, following in the footsteps of Montenegro and Italy who recorded positive results in the Eurovision Song Contest in recent years, with Italy managing three top ten results in four years, and Montenegro reaching the final for the very first time in 2014. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com even through Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news as soon as it becomes available.

Dober Večer! In Slovenia, the selection process is simple noting that seven (7) artists invited by the public broadcaster, RTVSLO will be competing for the right to represent the country in this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, being staged in Copenhagen, Denmark. Misa Molk, Darja Svajger and Andrea F were responsible for selecting the artists and now it will be all up to the general public to select their representative and entry with the hope of turning around the recent bout of negative results, including a last place finish in the semi-final a couple of months back, despite being an early fan-favourite.

escflashmalta.com will be following the event LIVE, through the official website of the Eurovision Song Contest where a webcast is being offered. Despite the fact that the public will be choosing, there will still be two (2) rounds of voting, with the top two (2) artists competing against each other in a super-final. Apart from the competing entries, the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest representative Maja Keuc will be performing a brand new single, as she continues to dominate the music scene. The host of the show will be none other than Una Furlan. Tune in and enjoy yet another national selection.

Following the first (1st) round of voting, it was Muff with the song Let Me Be (Myself) and Tinkara Kovac with the song Spet / Round and Round. Nevertheless, the Slovenian public was in full control of the selection and chose the latter with a total of 7932 votes as opposed to 3450, meaning that it was almost a 5000 point different. The song has been co-written by the renowned songwriter Raay and last years' representative Hannah Mancini who had finished last in the semi-final. We urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all the latest news as soon as it becomes available.

In 2014, Slovenia was one of the uncertain countries to partake in the Eurovision Song Contest, having suffered from a bout of limited finances in recent months. Nevertheless it was revealed by the European Broadcasting Union, on the final day of submissions that Slovenia will participate and they announced details of a national selection, one entitled EMA 2014, which comprised of a number of invited artists who had to work on specific songs for the Eurovision Song Contest. In the line-up was none other than 2005 representative Omar Naber whose entry Stop had just failed to get through the semi-final stage of the competition, despite a stunning performance.

RTVSLO, the public broadcaster responsible for the nations' participation in the Eurovision Song Contest took to their radio broadcaster in order to reveal the songs taking part in the national final, set to take place this Saturday and covered also LIVE on escflashmalta.com by Philippa Zammit. You may listen to the songs on the Official YouTube Channel being provided by the broadcaster. During the national final, the best two (2) songs will go onto the super-final where the winner and thus 2014 Slovenian representative will be selected.

Slovenia: RTVSlo Reveals EMA 2014 Line-Up

RTVSlo, the Slovenian public broadcaster was the last to confirm participation in this years’ edition of the Eurovision Song Contest but is definitely not wasting time in their selection process as the list of artists who will be competing in the national final; EMA 2014 has already been made public following an elimination process which involved forty-two (42) potential entries and twenty-nine (29) potential artists according to the public broadcaster.

Slovenia, a nation in the Balkan region is yet to win the Eurovision Song Contest with the most successful result being a seventh (7th) place finish on two (2) occasions; in 2001 with Nusa Derenda and her entry Energy and in 1995 with Darja Svajger and her song Prisluhni Mi. As a matter of fact, the latter artist was of three (3) professional judges during the eliminatory phase which also featured Misa Molk, the Head of EMA 2014 and Andrea F, a radio music editor, producer and musician, respectively.

  • Bilbi
  • Muff
  • Nermin Puškar & Samuel Lucas
  • Nude
  • Omar Naber
  • Rudi Bučar in Elevators
  • Tinkara Kovač

Many had been expecting the return of Nusa Derenda and Maja Keuc, two of the most beloved artists amongst fans of the Eurovision Song Contest but this is definitely not the case. Nevertheless, Omar Naber is the most recognisable name, having already been to the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2005 with the song Stop, failing to get through to the final, finishing in twelfth (12th) place. EMA 2014 is set to take place on Saturday 8th March at 20:00 CET with hosting duties given to Ula Furlan and with the public set to select their representative.

In 2011, April was the runner-up to Maja Keuc at the Slovenian national selection with the track Ladadidej and it seems that the broadcaster, RTVSLO has been in touch with a possible offer according to the artists’ official page on social networking website, Facebook. This is quite intriguing, especially when one need not forget that whilst Slovenia is currently on the provisional list of participants, it is yet unknown whether they will be making the trip to Copenhagen, Denmark due to the expenses of the broadcaster.

Despite the actual offer being relatively unknown, April is asking her fanbase whether she should take up the offer if it is indeed a reality and the response has been quite positive. It is to be noted that the 2011 edition of the Slovenian national final was quite challenging, with the likes of former Eurovision Song Contest representative, Omar Naber, putting his name forward. RTVSLO, the broadcaster responsible for the nations’ participation will make an announcement with regards to participation on the 7th January 2014 but until then, we urge you to stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

Slovenia, one of the countries facing constant disappointment at the Eurovision Song Contest are set to be pondering on a possible withdrawal in the upcoming year despite predominantly high viewing figures for the broadcaster, RTVSLO. Earlier this year, Hannah Mancini could only muster eight points to finish in sixteenth place with her entry Straight Into Love which she co-wrote with Gregor Zemljič, Erik Margan and Matija Rodić. In an exclusive interview given to Ilkar's Blogspot, Hannah reccommended the return of Maja Keuc, the female artist who represented Slovenia at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.

Maja Keuc is one of the two female artists alongside Alenka Gotar who helped the balkan nation move into the final since the introduction of the semi-final system was unveiled back in 2004. Her entry entitled No One composed by Matjaž Vlašič and penned by Urša Vlašič managed thirteenth place, the fourth best result for the country and the best since 2001 when Nusa Derenda had represented Slovenia with the song Energy which also happens to be co-written by the same team of songwriters with the inclusion of Lucienne Lončina. Maja is one of the nations' best artists with her debut album Indigo spawning a large number of successful singles including Zmorem, Get the Party Stared and the interestingly titled You're a Tree and I'm a Balloon. Despite maybe being cautious in her reply, Keuc said 'never say never' prompting rumours that she could be seeking the ticket to represent Slovenia in Denmark.

Slovenia: RTVSLO Presents Preview Video

All of the songs were formally submitted to the European Broadcasting Union a couple of days back and therefore, most of the versions being presented now are the final ones that will be performed during this years' Eurovision Song Contest. Music Videos are a necessary promotional tool in the market and with the right adjustments, a track would reach its full potential. Malta officially released their music video around two weeks ago featuring a vintage outlook of the performing band, Jeremy and his new mysterious love. A story-telling affair, in the true sense of the word. Today, Slovenia have unveiled their final product as well, and frankly, it has really improved.

Straight Into Love, heavily features more electronic bears in this new version surely to encompass the genre and the theme better. The music video in itself features several dark shots, with neon coloured lines. The protagonist is the performer, Hannah who is seen either along or surrounded by male dancers throughout. The man who Hannah has set her sights on has also been exposed and there are quite a number of shots which depict him in the best possible manner. There are some extra lyrics following the first different which despite being extremely minor changes make the track sound more unique. Like many of the others songs selected, the revamp has been substantial. Slovenia will be perform in slot number #3 within the first semi-final. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for all of the latest news.

Slovenia, one of the countries to have never won the Eurovision Song Contest have made an extremely brave decision to select both their artist and their entry internally following a number of budget constraits and it seems that the decision might very much end up working in their favour considering that the track is receiving mixed comments at the moment. The broadcaster, RTVSLO are resoundingly content with the selection of Hannah, who despite being originally from the United States of America, currently resides in Slovenia. The entry that she will be performing in the first part of the first semi-final bears the name Straight Into Love.

Dubstep has not really been done at the Eurovision Song Contest and when mixed with Pop and Dance, could actually echo a distinctive sound, a genre which might not be done once more in the competition due to being quite club related. Honestly, listening to this track for the first time, it bears elements of brilliance and this will surely be one of the songs that the Euroclub will enjoy playing with the fans and the visitors dancing along. The decision of the song was made by Andrej Karoli, Mirko Stular, Blaz Tišler, Aleksander Radic and Andrej Hofer who are music critics or members of the entertainment department at RTVSLO. I believe that this could be a song that does well at the Eurovision Song Contest but I'll leave you to judge the song based on it's merits.
