Lina Kudozovic EMA Slovenia Eurovision 2020 Man Like U

Just hours before the opening credits roll on the grand final of Slovenia’s EMA 2020, we can reveal that one act has the backing of most of our readers. If their taste is to be trusted, Lina Kuduzović should win with “Man Like U”.

However, there is one note of caution: most votes were cast based on snippets, so results may change completely once we hear all the live songs in full.

Lina Kuduzović is your favourite to win Slovenia’s EMA 2020 with “Man Like U”

After counting a total of 1,665 votes, we can confirm that Lina is a comfortable favourite to emerge victorious in tonight’s finale. “Man Like U” picked up 472 votes or 28.35of all votes cast.

Should Lina win, she will be the third confirmed former Junior Eurovision singer in Rotterdam, after Malta’s Destiny and Greece’s Stefania. Lina, of course, placed third at the contest in 2015 with “Prva ljubezen”.

Some way behind is Gaja Prestor with “Verjamem Vase”. She attracted 329 votes or 19.76% of all votes cast.

The EMA 2020 format will see two rounds of voting. The first will see all 12 acts perform. This will be voted on by the professional jury only. Two acts will progress to the superfinal. So, if our readers’ opinions align with those of Slovenia’s expert panel, we should see Gaja battle it out with Lina in the last round. The superfinal results are determined by televote alone.

Rounding out the top three is another familiar face — Tinkara Kovač. The flautist brought Slovenia to the Eurovision final in 2014, and six years on she remains a popular figure with the fans. “Forever” secured 244 votes or 14.64%. 

No other acts hit double digits in terms of percentage share of the vote. However, Imset, Inmate and Klara Jazbec all managed to secure more than 100 votes each.

OK, the final two have recently been confirmed for the super final: Ana Soklic and Lina Kuduzovic. I think, based on these two, Lina is more likely to be the representative of Slovenia this year.

I am hoping for Gaja tonight, I love how her voice sounds unique, and the snippet makes me think the song is going to be great. I hope she kills it tonight.

I love linas song. She should win just for her personality since she’s really the only one saying that everyone deserves to win. She’s so humble and down to earth.

Klara seems to be my choice. Lina and Tinkara have little going for their entries apart from the fact that y’all know who they are.

Slovenia, if I want to stand out and advance to the final in Rotterdam, they should choose Gaja Prestor in the colors of Slovenia and, the advantage is that Gaja sings in Slovenian, which is why Gaja Prestor is the best choice for Slovenes

Lina’s song isn’t all that. If it was sung by someone else, would it be #1 in the poll?
Even though it’s not my favourite, Gaja is pretty popular with fans. Klara Jazbec is my favourite so happy she’s not too low in the poll.

Jury will never ever place rock into the final. Inmate and Imset are there just for the free promo for their album and concerts, they even said it themselves in interviews.

Gaja is the best choice, her song is absolutely phenomenal. I hope she pulls through!

Seeing all the behind the scenes footage I suspect that the jury will give the two tickets to Tinkara, Klara, Manca, Ana S or even Parvani Violet. I hope for either Lina or Gaja, but I have a feeling that they aren’t “allowed” to win. RTV Slo is always a bit biased, hope I’m wrong.

For once I agree. It’s also because the English song is just not the best one available.

I think Lina will win, which would mean we will see a JESC 2015 rematch in Semi- Final 1 between Malta and Slovenia.

Sorry, I don´t like her. Imset would be the best choice, maybe still Saska.

Is that a joke? Not only she’s not even Slovenian, the song itself isn’t Slovenian. This is why everyone knows only trash people without education watch this trash show.
