Slovenia will select their Eurovision 2022 representative on February 19th. The winner of EMA 2022 will be selected by the televoters together with a jury. Slovenia will compete in the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin and the Slovenian representative is set to perform on the first half of the show.
Last time we saw Slovenia in the grand final of Eurovision was in 2019 when Zala Kralj and Gašper Šantl finished 15th in the final with “Sebi”. Last year in Rotterdam, Ana Soklič failed to qualify to the final with “Amen”.
