Slovenia: RTVSLO sticks to EMA format

RTVSLO has confirmed that Slovenia will take part at the Eurovision Song Contest again in 2017. They will once again use their format of EMA, the national final that has been used many times before.

The rules and regulations for EMA 2017 have been published by the Slovenian broadcaster. Artists and composers can send in song until the 3rd of November. Afterwards, a jury of three experts will make their minds up, and select the songs that will take part in the national final.

Last year Slovenia also used EMA as their format for the Eurovision Song Contest. ManuElla won the competition, but failed to reach the final with her song ‘Blue and Red’.
