This year, the winner would be chosen by televoting only. Whilst the televotes were being cast, viewers were treated to an interval act which featured Slovenian artists Quartissimo and Martina, Saša Lendero and Tinkara Kovač before the headline act, last years Eurovision Song Contest winner Alexander Rybak performed his new song Europe's Skies and his winning entry Fairytale.
The results were then announced and it was a resounding victory for Anzambel Roka Žlindre & Kalamari with Narodno Zabavni Rock scoring 15907 televotes. Nina Pušlar finished in second place scoring 3527 televtoes with Dež. Langa finished third with Roko Di Maj picking up 3462 televotes.
Last year, Quartissimo featuring Martina finished in 16th place in the Second Semi Final in Moscow with Love Symphony, and therefore did not qualify for the Final.
Slovenia will participate in the second half of the Second Semi Final of Europe's Favourite TV show on Thursday 27th May.
