Slovenia: RTVSLO considered withdrawing from ESC 2023!

RTVSLO, the national broadcaster of Slovenia, considered withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest 2023.

The Slovenia site Evrovizija.com reported that RTVSLO was considering not to take part in the upcoming 2023 contest in the United Kingdom, before they eventually confirmed participation earlier this week.  The 2007 representative and member of the RTVSLO Programme Council Alenka Gotar posted on her social media that:

Great news! In the spring, RTV’s management and consultants were thinking about not participating in Eurovision anymore! I am glad that this time they took into account the opinion of the Music Commission of the RTV Program Council, of which I am the president, that it is important for Slovenian music and musicians to create new music that is also shown abroad. Thank you also to the entire program board of RTV, left and right councilors who supported us/me! No vote against! Long live the music!

This wasn’t the first time that the broadcaster considered to step out of the contest. Both in 2013 and 2014 there was a debate regarding the withdrawal given the financial difficulties.

The Rehearsal

The band begins with a plan on their giant disco ball and all members around it and one on top. They use the lights a lot and there are many lights  on them and the disco ball. Overall a pleasant performance.
