Who are Kamil Mikulčík & Nela Pocisková?

Nela Pocisková, an actress and singer known from musicals and popular TV shows, was born in 1990, in the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava. Currently, she is in her third year of study at the Bratislava State Conservatory.

Kamil was born on the 18th of November in 1977 in Trnava. He's studied in the University of Economics in Bratislava and at the same time also in the Theatre Department of the Academy of Performing Arts where he got the Master of Arts degree in 2001.

"Welcome back Slovakia!" a fan from the Host Country of next year's Eurovision Song Contest - Norway - said. A Greek fan added: "Nice song and good performance!"

Their first performance on the stage of Europe's favourite TV-show earned them eight points and they finished eighteenth. This meant they weren't qualified for the Final, unfortunately.
