The final of EMA 2012 will be hosted by Maja Keuc, Slovenia's representative in the 2012 edition of Europe's Favourite TV Show, and Klemen Slakonja. Maja and Klemen also hosted all of the Misija Evrovizija shows, whereby the 32 original contestants were whittled down to the last two tonight.

The finalists

The two lucky finalists are Eva Boto and twin sisters Nika & Eva Prusnik. They will each perform three songs tonight. Then, the Slovenian public plus a professional jury will decide which is the best song for each act. The song deemed best for each act will then be performed again with 100% televoting deciding who will fly the Slovenian flag in Baku.
