Slovenia’s public broadcaster, RTV, announced that EMA, which was previously used to choose the country’s representative for the Eurovision Song Contest, will once more be used, after a year’s absence.
However, there will be certain differences from other years in the competition’s structure. In particular, at most four songs can compete in the EMA, which will take place in January 2024.
The participants must reside in Slovenia, whether they do so continuously or just occasionally. This requirement does not apply to the performers who will provide vocal accompaniment for the main performance.
Interested artists may submit their applications until 15 November 2023.
The four songs will be chosen through voting by global expert committees based on the following criteria: quality, voice and stage presence, popularity, modernity/innovation, and global recognition.
Last year, Slovenia was represented by Joker Out with the song “Carpe Diem”, giving the country its first qualification to the final since 2019!
