ManuELLA will follow in the footsteps of Maraaya and will represent Slovenia in the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest. ManuELLA won the Slovenian national selection show EMA 2016, earlier this evening beating off competition from nine other competing acts.
Slovenia will host their EMA 2016 Eurovision selection show later tonight. Ahead of their decision, we have asked you who you think will triumph and be crowned as teh Slovenian entry for 2016. You have been voting for weeks in our poll and I can now reveal that Raiven received the most votes for song ‘Crno Bel’.
Slovenia have made twenty one appearances at Eurovision. Their best result, seventh, has been achieved on two occasions- in 1995 (‘Prisluhni mi’ by Darja Švajger) and 2001 with ‘Energy’ by Nuša Derenda (who is one of the acts competing to be the 2016 entry). Slovenia have qualified for the final on only four occasions since the semi finals were introduced in 2004. Most recently Slovenia were represented by Maraaya in 2015 with their song ‘Here for You’ which finished in fourteenth in the final, a solid result by Slovene standards.
But what have Slovenia got in store for us in 2016? Read on to find out!
