Slovenia’s Eurovision Journey
In 1993, Slovenia made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest with 1X Band and the song “Tih deževen dan”, which placed 22nd. Since their debut, they have participated 26 times (15 of which, where they qualified for the Grand Final.)
Slovenia’s recent Eurovision participation, saw them being represented by Ana Soklič, who represented them with the song “Amen”, which placed 13th in the first semi-final receiving 44 points from the jury and televoters.
