Slovenia appears to have confirmed that they will be participating in the 62nd edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine.
The Slovenian website Evrovizija.com has reported that Slovenia will be competing in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine. The announcement from Slovenia of their intention to compete comes earlier than normal.
The website reports that once again EMA will be used to select the countries entrant for Eurovision, however the selection will undergo changes. EMA in 2016 was tied in with Dnevi slovenske zabavne glasbe. For 2017 the contest will once again become independent and will be forward to take place in January.
The selection will be spread over the month to include a number of semi finals, culminating in a final. This sees the selection change to reflect the countries selection process in 2012 Misija Evrovizija. It is hoped that this will encourage more artists to submit songs into the selection process.
RTVSLO will reveal more in the coming months along with an open call for submissions.
