EMA 2020

This year's Evrovizijska Melodija (EMA) is divided into two parts:

  • EMA Freš: Slovenia's Pre-selection for EMA 2020 (2 best proceed to EMA 2020) – online
  • EMA 2020: Slovenia's National Selection for Eurovision 2020 – live show

The winner of EMA 2020 will represent Slovenia at Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam.

At the final of EMA, the voting process will consist of two rounds. In the first, a jury panel will choose the best two songs to proceed to a Superfinal. This superfinal will be decided solely by the public televoters and therefore decide who will represent Slovenia at Eurovision Song Contest 2020 in Rotterdam.
