A while ago, the fourth artist for Eurovision 2023 was announced . Slovenia made a surprise because for the second time in its history, the artist that will represent the country in the contest will not be selected through a national final, but by internal selection.
Slovenia’s public television (RTVSLO) in a special press conference announced that Joker Out!, a pop/rock band will fly the country’s flag in Liverpool. Joker Out! they were already working on the song they intended to submit to EMA (the Slovenian national final for Eurovision), when the RTVSLO people made them a proposal.
We talked about the Eurovision Song Contest years ago, but we were waiting for the right moment, which is obviously now!
Bojan Cvjetićanin , frontman of Joker Out!
The Joker Out! consists of Bojan Cvjetićanin, Kris Guštin, Jan Peteh, Jure Maček and Martin Jurkovič . They have already released four singles and a full length album since 2016 when they formed. They are one of the most popular Slovenian artists in recent years. In 2020 they won the award for the best new artist, and in 2021 for the artist of the year! All their concerts are sold out, while they recently released a single in Serbian, targeting the entire music market of the former Yugoslavia.
The song that will represent Slovenia at Eurovision 2023 will be recorded next weekend in Hamburg and we will be able to hear it on February 4th!
