After Andorra’s and Luxembourg’s confirmation of not returning to the Eurovision Song Contest next year, the list joined another country, Slovakia.

The Slovakian national broadcaster, RTVS,  has confirmed that Slovakia will not participate at the forthcoming 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Israel. The country has withdrawn from Eurovision since 2013 and has no intention returning due to financial restrictions.

The Eurovision Story So Far

Back in Slovakia  in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993 the country  competed in the special preliminary semifinal in Slovenia, but failed to qualify and participate . It was right next year with  Martin Durinda and Tublatanka when the country made its debut in Dublin. Since then the country has participated 8 times and it hasn’t much to show when it comes to results when its best placing was in Oslo with Marcel Palonder and his 18th placing

It was Max Jason Mai  and his song  Don’t close your eyes  at ESC 2012 in Baku that represented Slovakia for the county’s last appearance.
