The Slovenian broadcaster plans to push back its selection as far as possible should Scenario D be announced for Eurovision 2021.
Aleksander Radić, the Head of Delegation for Slovenia has stated how the broadcaster should react if Scenario D were to be announced for Eurovision 2021. Speaking on Humans of Eurovision, Mr Radic explained that the Slovenian broadcaster would push back its song selection show until as late a date as possible. The day after the selection they would then record the final performance to be used at Eurovision on the same stage as the selection without an audience.
The reason that the broadcaster would opt to do this, is that it is more cost effective to reuse the set from the national selection than to build a new set a few weeks later from scratch. You can watch the full interview with the Slovenian delegation below:
