The national final which always sets the viewing rates in Slovenia alight is affectionately called EMA - which should not be mistaken for MTV's European Music Awards! Having participated since 1993, it's the 14th time that Slovenia will participate in the Eurovision Song Contest as an independent country. Their best result so far is the 7th place of Nusa Derenda's Energy from the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen.
No clear favourite
The show will start at 19:55 CET in RTVSLO's Studio 1 in Ljubljana. The presenters will be Bernarda Žarn and Mario Galunič. According to experts, there is no clear favourite in the running, so we're all in for an exciting evening!
