Slovenia’s Eurovision journey
In 1993, Slovenia made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest. Their first artist was 1X Band with 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 LPS. The band represented Slovenia with the song “Disko”. At the close of voting, LPS placed 18th in the first semi-final; receiving 15 points from the jury and televoters, finishing last in the semi-final.
