Eight Acts Qualify For Slovenia's EMA Final


Tonight, Slovenia began their search for their next Eurovision participant, after Omar Naber failed to qualify for the Eurovision Grand Final last year. This year RTV Slovenija have opted for their EMA pre-selection show. It consisted of one semi final tonight that saw sixteen songs perform for eight places in the grand final to be held next week on the 24th February 2018.

The 16 artists that performed were:

Anabel- "Pozitiva" (Positivity)

BQL- "Ptica" (Bird)

Gregor Ravnik- "Zdaj je čas" (Now is the time)

Ina Shai "V nebo" (To the sky)
