RTVSLO has announced that Ana Soklič has been internally selected and will be performed in English.
The Slovenian broadcaster has revealed that instead of holding a three song national selection, that for the first time since 2013 it has internally selected the song that Ana will perform at Eurovision.
The song will not be a ballad and will be performed in English unlike her 2020 entry “Voda”. Ana commented:
I sincerely thank everyone who contributed their works, we had a hard time choosing and choosing. In fact, the song may sound great in the other singer’s interpretation, but in my vocal performance it sounds completely different. I am very happy with the chosen song, I hope you will all be too. We also made good use of the unique opportunity with recorded backing vocals, which is allowed by this year’s Eurovision rules due to all the measures. I can’t wait to be able to share the song with you. And, no, it’s not a ballad.
The reveal of the Slovenian entry will take place on February 27 in EMA 2021 presented by Lea Sirk and Nejc Šmit. The show will celebrate 60 years of Slovenian participation in the Eurovision Song Contest.
