we stan Raiven's tribute to her biggest fan sis where her avatar has gone to ? we miss the blue hairNot even one single post here yet? How sad!
First of all, in the name of Slaya Sirk and Zalagastonishing, let me bless this thread: may 2021 be a successful year for Slovenija.
Second of all, let us remember the tour de force of this year's NF: despite an EMA FRES selection gone wrong, the JESC returnee losing to an act no one really saw coming before the live show, and the winning song getting a fairly cold reception because it was too slow/old-fashioned/you-name-it, these guys managed to present a revamp done right and a final product that would have stood a chance of shining in Rotterdam imo.
Lazy me still has to work on a personal ranking, but "Voda" will definitely be up there: the revamp really did wonders to me, as I didn't like the original version of the song. I felt the potential was there, but I never thought they would be able to give me just what I needed through a major re-work: the beat, the enhanced atmosphere, the additional bridge... They did that! They certainly read ESC United (who wouldn't?) and freaked out because me getting off the superfan train was a no-no.
Third of all, I wonder what RTVSLO will do next year. On one hand, selecting Ana internally would be fair and it wouldn't compromise their chances of success since she's definitely talented, they would have to make sure she has the right entry though. On the other hand, cancelling EMA would mean no show, no hopefuls, nothing. It's been done in 2013 for other reasons, but somehow I doubt they'd get rid of it without a second thought, even for year. Whatever they do, I just hope Ana won't be swept under the carpet as if nothing happened like some other 2020 representatives.
And since I seize literally every opportunity to mention my Ljubljana-based cousin Raiven, she recently covered Celine Dion's entry in a TV show. Now watch her come back with a song in French next time, Tom Leeb who? I'm glad to be an inspiration for her, today she finally embraces my language on TV, yesterday her last EP was called "REM" because she couldn't name it "TUOREM" due to copyright issues... What next? A collab maybe? Let me dye my hair an unnatural colour first.
The enthusiastic in me cannot wait for some news from RTVSLO, whatever their decision for next year is. Fingers crossed for Ana.
Look what happend with Israel.... One year later they hosted amazing contest....The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the European Federation of Journalists (EFJ), and the South East Europe Media Organisation (SEEMO) are concerned by the proposed changes to the funding of public service media in Slovenia and the extremely short period of five days envisaged for public...www.ebu.ch
It won't affect Slovenian participation imho, judging from simultaneous announcement of their 2021 song submission. Also it's possible to take part with even less funds than that.
