Maja Keuc will not take part in the Slovenian preselection EMA 2017 after all. Broadcaster RTVSLO announced on Friday that she decided to withdraw from the contest and they will search for another act.
Maja Keuc, who took part for Slovenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, wanted to take part again as Amaya. But instead she decided to go for a chance to make it in South Korea. Keuc has been offered a couple of gigs in the Asian country.
RTVSLO still aims for sixteen acts in EMA 2017. The shows take place on the 17th, 18th and 24th of February. Omar Naber (ESC 2005) is still on the roll for participation. He will take part in the first semi final.
