There will be ten entries that will compete for this honour, with the show being hosted Ajda Smrekar. The winning entry will be Slovenia's 25th at Eurovision. The running order is as follows:
Kim – Rhythm Back To Me
Renata Mohorič – Three Bridges

Ula Ložar – Fridays
Lumberjack – Lepote dna
Okustični – Metulji plešejo
INMATE – Atma
Zala Kralj and Gašper Šantl – Oprosti
Raiven – Kaos
The show will use both a jury, and the public to determine the winning song. However, this will be done in two stages. The professional jury will be used to whittle down then ten songs to a final two. These two entries will the progress to a super final. The public will then get involved as they will chose the winner. It has been noted the jury will only be used to determine the winner, if there is a technical problem with the public voting system.
Last year, Slovenia stuck to its roots, and opted to only send a song sung in its native language. It was Lea Sirk that won the right to sing in Lisbon, where she performed, "Hvala, ne!" which eventually finished 22nd scoring 64 points.
