Introducing 2014: Slovenia!

The Slovenian participation was in serious doubt this year - the EBU gave them two extended deadlines to get their finances in order, and thankfully they confirmed their participation on 17th January. It was later announced the Slovenian entry would be chosen through EMA. The national final was held on 8th March where Tinkara Kovač won with Spet/Round and Round. The best song defiantly won. But I also had a little soft spot for Muff's Let Me Be Myself. Tinkara Kovač has tried to represent Slovenia three times already - in 1997, 1999 and 2001. The song has been criticised for the flute comparison to "Only Teardrops", but Tinkara has said that she's been playing the flute before Emmelie de Forest was even born!

I hope Slovenia manage to qualify. I think there's a good chance they will. Another borderline qualifier.. Semi-final two is incredibly hard to call as everyone has a fair chance of making it. We'll see in a couple of weeks! The official video-clip was released a couple of weeks ago. Beautiful.
