Slovenia announces EMA Freš 2022 participants 🇸🇮

26 November 2021 at 21:05 CET
EMA Freš is a pre-selection contest designed to encourage ‘fresh’ Slovenian talent; those under 30 with fewer than three commercial singles.

In total, EMA Freš received 127 submissions, which a panel of experts has narrowed down to 24.

These songs will battle it out in a series of online votes and qualifiers before 4 lucky young participants will be chosen via two televised EMA Freš shows in January, to join 16 more established acts across the EMA 2022 semi-finals and final in February.

From Monday 29 November, for the next three weeks, the broadcaster will present two performances each day from Monday to Thursday. You are invited to vote on who you’d like to see progress to the weekly Saturday webcast presented by Arne, Eva Boto and Bojan Cvjetićanin.

RTVSLO has produced a handy graphic to help you navigate this unique process.

Voting begins on the EMA Freš website on Monday 29 November at 08:00 CET, so head on over now to familiarise yourself with the 24 entries:
