Slovenia’s national broadcaster has confirmed it has signed preliminary papers for the EBU to continue Slovenia’s participation in the Eurovision Song Contest, suggesting that it is highly likely the nation will join a much more bolstered Balkan showing next year.
Slovenia joins 35 other countries expected to take part in the contest next year, despite continued worries that the Central European country may be losing interest in the contest. Slovenia qualified for the final of Eurovision for the first time in three years in 2014, when Tinkara Kovač’s “Round and Round” reached the final and finished in 25th with nine points and ahead of France.
Of course, Slovenia still has a month in which it can withdraw without penalty, but today’s news brings us closer to achieving a higher participation rate than in 2014.
