Slovenia: Maraaya going to Eurovision!
Maraaya has won the EMA 2015, the country’s national final , so has the right to represent Slovenia at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna. The show included eight acts performing live on the national broadcaster RTVSLO’s TV SLO 1 channel, where two rounds of voting were held to decide the winner.
In the first round of voting, the expert jury, made up of three members, gave each song a score from one to five.
At the end of this round Maraaya and Rudi Bučar topped the vote and therefore went on to the super final. After a second performance the two songs were judged only by the public.
Each of the super finalists performed for a second time, but this time it was the public who got to decide who they wanted to see represent Slovenia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015.
Once the votes came in, Maraaya was declared the winner and will now represent the country in the contest this May with the song Here for you.
