After Slovenia confirmed the date of their national final, broadcaster RTV Slovenija has now released 30-second snippets alongside the running order of the 10 finalists of EMA 2019.
KIM will kick off the final with “Rhythm Back to You” — one of two songs co-written by Slovenia’s Eurovision 2015 duet Maraaya — whilst Raiven brings down the curtain with “Kaos”. The songs cross genres, hopping from ballads to pop to rock. If you’re ready to turn up the volume and take it all in, click here to hear it all.
EMA 2019 running order
- Kim – “Rhythm Back to You”

Reverting back to the 2016 format, all 10 finalists perform their entries on the night hosted by Ajda Smrekar. A three-member jury panel will be involved on deciding which two songs will advance to the superfinal. Then the two superfinalists perform their entries again before the Slovenian public choose their EMA 2019 winner.
With the final itself not until 16 February, the Slovenian broadcaster are counting down to the big day with webcasts of the EMA 2019 finalists every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, which is available on their official YouTube channel.
