Tinkara Kovach wins EMA 2014 in Slovenia with “Spet/Round and Round”

Following its only absence due to internal selection last year, the national selection show EMA returned to Slovenia tonight. This year’s show was hosted by Ula Furlan. The seven acts all performed their entries under the confirmed running order. Once it was done, the first round of voting began and once again, the winner was selected by 100% televoting.

Tonight’s special guest was EMA 2011 winner Maja Keuc, who premiered her new single “Close To You”.

The two entries with the highest number of votes progressed to the EMA super final. After all the votes were counted and verified, Tinkara Kovach and Muff advanced to the super final. Sadly, we had to say goodbye to the other five acts.
