Winner being announced soon! So much tense.

Now it’s Tinkara performing her song “Cuori di ossigeno”!

February 28, 20159:27 pm

Darja performing last year’s winning song and the reason of going to Vienna this year – Conchita’s “Rise Like a Phoenix”.

Oh great, a performance of “Euphoria” (Sweden 2012) by Maja Keuc. It’s gotta be amazing.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:20 pm

Now it’s up to the public! Hopefully they’ll make a wise choice. #maraaya #notrudi


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:16 pm

We just had the second performance of the first superfinalist Maraaya! Now it’s Rudi Bučar En Figoni next.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:11 pm

Rudi Bučar En Figoni is the second superfinalist. Such disappointment I have to say.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:09 pm

And our first superfinalist, it’s Maraaya!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:08 pm

And we our first prediction! @RyanGault_ “I could be horriby wrong, but I think I.C.E and Maraaya in the superfinal.”


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:04 pm

And I was right. A performance of last year’s entry “Round and Round” by Tinkara!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:04 pm

I see two envelopes, hopefully they are the superfinalists. And I see no Tinkara. Perhaps she’s getting ready for a perfomance?


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20159:03 pm

While waiting for the results, send us your tweet @escXtra with your predictions and your favorites! I personally want Martina or Jana to win.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:59 pm

Following all this random thing, we have our first recap!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:57 pm

After a random waltz by the host (or whatever that dance was), there is a random lady singing. Followed by another random dance routine.

“Alive”

A great way to end the show! The song is so powerful, Martina’s vocals are just incredible (I guess that’s why she has been a backing vocalist for so many times) and I adore her dress. I think it’s time for her to be in the front! She totally deserves it.

I’d give it a 10 out of 10. I give them out so easily, but the song is totally amazing.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:52 pm

So, the last one is the multiple times backing vocalist, Martina Majerle performing Alive!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:50 pm

“Šaltinka”

Oh got these kind of songs, so terrible and annoying. It’s just another “So Lucky” situation (Moldova 2011), which I disliked very much. I just hope it doesn’t win, because normally these songs tend to win because of being the “joke” entries.

I’d give it 1 out of 10. And it’s way too much for it.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:47 pm

Second last song, Šaltinka by Rudi Bučar En Figoni.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:46 pm

Hands down, it’s time for a performance by Maja! An acoustic version of the incredible “No One”.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:45 pm

And now we’re seeing all the 12 points Slovenia ever received I guess? Most of them are probably from 2011.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:45 pm

Alright, these ads were certainly shorter than the previous ones.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:43 pm

After three more songs, we got ads again. Hopefully they’ll be short again.

“Here For You”

Another song I really like! Her voice is quite weird but I adore the song. I find it odd that she was wearing headphones during her performance though – why the headphones with such dress? It doesn’t really look okay to me – don’t ask me why. But well, it doesn’t really change the fact that the song is catchy.

I’d give it an 8 out of 10.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:38 pm

Next up is Maraaya performing Here For You!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:37 pm

“Mava to”

I don’t really like this song. As I mentioned before, I rarely like songs by male singers. Well, this is not an exception like Tim’s song was. The only good thing about this song is that it’s in Slovenian. Nothing else. Not even the clothes could make it up.

I’d give it a 3 out of 10.

Moving on to the fifth song. Mava to by Clemens!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:32 pm

“Vse mogoče”

This song is really good! It has this rock-ish sound that I fancy. However, I feel like there’s something missing from the song.

I’d give it an 8 out of 10.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:29 pm

Fourth song right now! Vse mogoče by I.C.E.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:28 pm

And we’re back already! It was luckily a short break.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:26 pm

Everything was going on so well – now we have ads. As we’re having this small (hopefully) break, send us a tweet @escXtra with your thoughts about the songs so far.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:24 pm

“Glas srca”

This is the kind of songs I love! It has all it needs for me to love it: a female singer, a catchy tune and non-English lyrics! It might actually be one of my favorites tonight. And the Jana’s vocals are really great! I just hope it’s not changed to English in case it’s selected.

I’d give this a 10 out of 10. Perfect!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:21 pm

This selection is going on too fast. Third song: Glas srca by Jana Šušteršič!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:20 pm

And we just had a performance by the female hosts of the show!


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:18 pm

“Once Too Many Times”

I rarely like songs by male singers, but this is actually nice. I think that the song has potential. It would make a good entry in Vienna.

I’d give it a 7 out of 10.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:15 pm

This song is quite good. But there’s something I don’t like about it. It might be its music that I don’t really like. However, the vocals were alright and it’s still not a bad song. Oh and amazing clothes for Aya.

I’d give it a 5 out of 10.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:15 pm

Next song already! Once Too Many Times by Tim Kores.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:12 pm

First song! Misunderstandings by Alya & Neno Belan.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:06 pm

It seems like we’re going to have a recap of the Eurovision songs by the three hosts. First off – Darja.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:05 pm

There comes the one of our tonight’s four hosts, the comedian Nejc Šmit. And we also see the three other hosts, all previous Slovenian representatives: Maja, Darja and Tinkara!

And it started! Apparently there is a dance routine to a remix of “Round and Round” by a group called Maestro.


Dimitris Ioannou
February 28, 20158:00 pm

Good evening everyone! 8 songs will be competing in tonight’s final! The selection should start anytime soon.

I'm from Cyprus and I've been a fan of the contest since 2005 but started connecting with the rest of the fans around 2012 and joined the escXtra team in 2015. Before Eurovision, I normally would like the "mainstream" type of songs but since I got to know about it, I started liking more and different types of songs.
