Three months ago, husband-and-wife duo Maraaya got down, down low in Vienna. Finishing in fourteenth place (Slovenia’s best placing since 2011) has seen the duo’s domestic profile get even bigger. Yesterday they announced on Facebook that Marjetka she of bejewelled headphone fame — will join the judging panel of Slovenija ima talent, the country’s adaption of Got Talent.

Marjetka told newspaper Slovenske Novice about her performance philosophy.

“When it comes to talent, I look wider than just a few minutes of a stage performance. It is a lot of effort, work, dedication and willpower. The sentence ‘I can’t’ should not be in his or her vocabulary if he or she wants to win.”

In four seasons of the show, only singers have been able to grab the trophy. Last year’s winner was Jana Sustersic, who competed against Marjetka and Maraaya in EMA last year.

She joins the ranks of other Eurovision-stars-turned-judges, including Edurne, Anggun, Nina Zilli, Charlotte Perrelli, and DJ Bobo, all of whom have judged their own country’s Got Talent at some point. We’re confident that Marjetka will slay!
