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
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!
