We can find some familiar faces among the Slovenian finalists, Raiven has already competed at EMA twice and hosted the contest this year. Ula Ložar represented Slovenia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 with the song Nisi Sam / Your Light.
At the final, a three-person jury panel will select the best two acts after the first round of performances. These two participants will face in a super final where the public will choose the winner via televoting.
