Just as it did last year, Slovenia’s national broadcaster RTVSLO will once again use their Evrovizijska Melodija (EMA) national final format, with this year’s 19th edition taking place at the end of February. RTVSLO has today revealed that a total of eight finalists, not 12 as originally reported, will be competing on the night. That’s one more than last year. You can see the full list below.
Up to a maximum of 6 acts were invited by RTVSLO. The rest were selected by a jury panel from a song submission process, which took place late last year. The jury received 145 entries, the second highest total in EMA history.

EMA 2015 will employ the same voting format used to select Maja Keuc in 2011. The eight finalists each perform their entries, before the juries evaluate and rate each one. The two songs with the highest sum totals advance to the EMA super-final. They will then perform again and the televoting public decide the winner.
What do you of this year’s line-up? Who do you want to represent Slovenia in Vienna?
