Two acts presented every week from Monday-Wednesday, and the public will determine through an online survey every day who will qualify for Friday’s round where the winner of the week will be selected. There will be two weekly winners, as the other will be selected by an expert panel.
Six artists will qualify for the finals of EMA Freš in the first three weeks. 12 acts or one of the “lucky losers” will follow the same system in the “happy losers” online competition in the next two weeks, where four more acts will be included in the final selection of EMA Freš.
10 finalists of EMA Freš will compete for a place in EMA 2020. One act chosen by the public, and one act chosen by a professional jury will become the first two finalists of EMA 2020.
