The Slovenian broadcaster, RTVSLO, announced that LPS, Slovenia’s representatives in Turin, have decided to keep the song “Disko” in their native language!
LPS won EMA 2022 and therefore secured their ticket to Italy. Their journey started at EMA Freš, a qualifying event organised by RTVSLO for unestablished artists where they came second in the jury, giving them a qualification for the semi-finals of EMA 2022.
Their song “Disko” is entirely in Slovenian. The song was written by all five members of the band in August during a rehearsal at Gimnazija Celje – Center. In an interview with MMC, they revealed that they do not intend to change the lyrics, as they are based on several true events.
LPS’ victory was a surprise for them as well, with the band having rapid success in recent months. From a high school band, the five of them are now preparing for the stage in Turin. As they say, they haven’t thought much about the staging in Italy, but have been rehearsing a lot for EMA 2022. They also added that, above all, the plan is to enjoy the experience that is the Eurovision Song Contest.
Music is our way of life and performing at Eurovision will mean a lot to us.
