Slovenia will be represented at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 by ManuElla. Her song ‘Blue And Red’ was the winning entry of the preselection show EMA 2016 tonight in Ljubljana.
The show in Slovenia was made up out of ten artists, with two of them making it to a super final. Besides the winning act, also Raiven and her harp got through the first round of voting. Nuša Derenda (ESC 2001) and Regina (ESC 1996) were already eliminated by a special jury (Raay, Darja Švajger and one of the members of Sestre) at that time.
Last year Slovenia was represented by Maraaya, who made a guest appearance at EMA 2016 as interval act. They qualified for the final in Vienna with the song ‘Here For You’, where they finished in 14th place after opening the show.
