Last year Slovenia found itself in a new position in the lead-up to Eurovision: Their act Maraaya was among the bookies’ favourites. And while the end result didn’t live up to the hype, they did a stellar job and took Slovenia back to the grand final for a second year running. So it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that today RTVSLO announced on its Facebook page that it has filed a preliminary application to participate in Eurovision 2016. They wanna keep a good thing going.

Slovenia confirms for Eurovision 2016

BUT WHO?

Last year we dreamed of Petra Marklund (formerly September) singing at Eurovision for Slovenia. But in our most recent Wednesday Wishlist we went with Kingston. Here’s who he is and what we said…

Eurovision comes at a convenient time for artists, since summer is right around the corner. What does that mean? Summer hits, everyone! France took advantage of the timing with Jessy Matador in 2010, and now Slovenia can do the same with Kingston. Fronted by singer Reno Cibej, guitarists Dare Kaunic and Dejan Dimec, keyboardist Zvone Tomac, and drummer Klemen Ogrizek, Kingston is known for summertime smashes accompanied by music videos with bikini-clad ladies and maritime locations. While some of their discography is reggae-based *shudder*, their pop songs are totally fair game for Eurovision. Let Kingston bring the party to Stockholm!

Who do you want to sing at Eurovision for Slovenia? Let us know in the comments box below!

Slovenia was with no doubt absolutely the best in 2015. IF they even can make an even better song than Here For You, or my 2011 favorite No One, Slovenia may finally win the contest! 🙂

Hoping for a good pop song in Slovenian, but ballads are in this case good too. They are pretty good in bskkads.
