Back in 2010, and aged just 7, Lina Kuduzovic rose to fame as the first ever winner of Slovenija ima talent (Slovenia’s Got Talent). Little Lina beat a certain Maja Keuc in the final.

With the show now on its fifth series, and Maraaya’s Marjetka joining this year’s judging panel, Lina made her return during last night’s live semi-final show as a guest performer with her Junior Eurovision entry “Prva ljubezen” (First Love). You can watch her performance below.

Lina won Slovenia’s first ever junior national final Mini EMA last month to become the country’s second Junior Eurovision representative, which takes place in Sofia on 21 November. Do you think her live performance above merits a top finish at JESC 2015? Holla at us below and let us know!

It’s my second place! Lina is amazing and I think if San Marino doesn’t win (they won’t i guess but they’re my 1st) Slovenia deserves it

Lina has a great song and she herself is an amazing singer. Couple this with her looks and stage presence–and we have the whole package. Of course, like Krisia last year, she represents a small country and this will hurt her, unfortunately. This song in English, representing any of the jury’s “preferred” countries, would have been an easy winner, the way Nastya Petik or Gaia Cauchi were.

I will be happy if she wins. At least top 5 for me. Go Lina!

I think that this song will place higher than last year’s mostly because this song carries a more mainstream appeal. Prva ljubezen is a masterful entry that could win the contest. However, there are a lot of other ballads, and several upbeat songs that seem to be very divisive among people following the contest, so I don’t know how to make any sort of prediction about the results this year.

That was flawless! Can’t wait to see how they take advantage of the fabulous stage this year. I hope they don’t kill the song with pyrotechnics though; keep it understated.

(Maybe have her sat at the piano??)

She sounds stronger and more confident
This is very promising… I’ll be surprisided if this ranks as low as Nisi Sam, which I liked more actually

The jury are definitely going to rank this highly. It’s my number 3 and I would love to see Slovenia win JESC this year, I really hope she doesn’t get underrated like Ula last year. Good luck Slovenia 🙂
