Slovenia to choose 2013 entry internally

National broadcaster RTVSLO has confirmed that the Slovenian entry for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest will be chosen internally.

In a press release issued today, RTVSLO confirm that due to the fact their participation in the 2013 contest was only confirmed on 15th December last year, this left little time to properly organise a national selection and call for entries to be submitted.

Due to these time constraints, plus reduced funding issues, it has therefore been decided that the 2013 Slovenian entry will be chosen internally. This method of selection is nothing new across many participating countries, and indeed has been employed by several countries already for their 2013 entries.

RTVSLO state that the artist and song should be known and made public no later than 15th February.

Slovenia will participate in the first half of the First Semi-Final of Europe's Favourite TV Show on Tuesday 14th May in Malmö.

    I have been thinking: rtvslo should choose Maja Keuc, Nika Zorjan or Omar Naber. All three of them have great voice. And the song should write and compose Urša and Matjaž Vlašič or Raay; something great, strong and lively, not a ballad - something like Energy (Nuša Derenda - esc 2001)!!!

    Good luck Slovenia!!! i wish you/us the best! =) report to the moderator

    Considering there's no EMA 2013 and Slovenian public won't be involved with this year's entry, it's a huge gamble.

    But we might as well make the most of it since Slovenia are fortunate enough to still be in the Eurovision Song Contest despite financial difficulties. report to the moderator
