After Slovenia decided that Omar Naber is on his way to Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv last night, broadcaster RTV Slovenija has today revealed the full results from both semi-finals of EMA 2017, which took place on February 17 and 18.

We already know a 50/50 combination of televoting and regional juries was used in the final. For both semi-finals, the two acts with the highest televotes qualified, followed by another two ranked next highest under the jury votes.

@TJ

i’m sorry for being sick of the fact that i’ve never been really pleased with the winner of ema. the only exception is maja keuc in 2011. AND I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE!

i am just guessing, okay. but you can’t deny it wasn’t a deal. bql was clearly people’s favorite. we all believed this year will be different okay?! and we voted. but the winner was selected by 18 people. 18 vs few thousands… think of that!

and omar is staying in semi final.

@D maybe…. it’s just my opinion. but people were mostly talking about nika, raiven and bql, even nuška.

the dialect nika sings is still slovene. it’s funny how people want more songs in slovene but then choose english over a dialect, which is worth nothing less than standard slovene. 🙂

fan17 – Maybe you’d be on to something if this was Belarus, but this is Slovenia, that wouldn’t happen. Nika did bad in televoting because she sang in a dialect and not standard Slovene.

i highly doubt omar won the televoting in semi and was placed 2nd yesterday! 1) i think nika is the one who was chosen by people in the 1st semi and omar was ‘chosen’ by the juries, but they changed it because they didn’t want the final result looking suspicious. it was definitely a deal. you can see omar’s face expression. it’s not an expression of happiness, euphoria, excitement, surprise…. beacause HE KNEW HE WILL WIN. 2) he was also live streaming the voting, he obviosuly knew he will win. this sounds stupid but you know what i mean? it… Read more »

I’ve just heard BQL’s song.

One question – Slovenia, you stupid for not sending that one to ESC?

Oh, you are!

Just have a look at #2’s throughout the years before…and you’ll see what the hell Slovenia missed. Like, EVERY FU**IN’ YEAR.

I never really got the hype with Alya and I’m not surprised she flopped.
