Juries decide

The first act confirmed as qualified to the next stage was Nika Zorjan, followed by Eva Boto. This meant that the last remaining place was to be taken by either Manuela Brečko or Nika & Eva Prusnik. After they both performed another song, it was down to a jury vote as to who would survive. The juries confirmed that by three votes to one they elected to save Nika & Eva Prusnik.
