If there has to be returnees, I say Lina
can come back when she grows a personality, she is a good singer but that Ariana fantasy was not the deal imo.
? Imagine how tired I am tbh. "No One" will remain one my Slovenian highlights but I'm fed up with her potential comeback teasing that was already happening back in 2014 or something. Not to mention her last-minute withdrawal in 2017 and her continued appearances in EMA afterwards (weloveagoodtroll.com). Such a huge talent and yet, her career choices have been puzzling me to say the least.
As for Maraaya
, I'd rather have them write for one act that's worth it than several people who end up with half-baked songs. If they still plan to submit something, since they didn't bother in 2020.
? She'll probably try again next year since she hasn't released any new material since 2019 despite teasing recording sessions before the pandemic via Instagram stories. I'd love to hear an operatic metal entry from her, but she'll most likely stay in the electro-pop department (and maybe sing in English). She's lost three times already though and since I've been too emotionally invested edition after edition... I don't know if she'll ever make it. She's got potential, but locals are off-put by her somehow.
My hottest wish would be to have Astrid In Avantgarden
back: "Sing To Me" was completely robbed in Ema Fres, it is my most played Eurovision-related track of 2020. I wish they would try again with a dark pop effort of that kind.
Or a fresh face - with a solid package that stands out - would make me just as glad.
Whatever happens, I hope to be back to stan mode. One year not rooting for my Slovenija (not My Słowianie
) feels like ages. I do not like being stateless.
