The 16 acts competing in EMA 2018 have been announced:

Anabel
BQL
Gregor Ravnik
INA SHAI
Indigo
KiNG FOO
Lara Kadis
Lea Sirk
ManuElla
Marina Martensson
MILA
Nika Zorjan
Nuška Drašček
ORTER
Proper
Tanja Ribic

ManuElla of course represented Slovenia back in 2016 with 'Blue & Red'. Tanja Ribic has also already done Eurovision in 1997. A lot of previous EMA finalists make a return including KiNG FOO, Nika Zorjan and BQL, who won the EMA televote last year with the amazing 'Heart Of Gold' by almost 8,000 votes, yet ultimately lost out to the dreary 'On My Way' by Omar Naber. This could well explain why the regional Slovenian juries have been axed this year, in favour of juries of industry professionals, OGAE Slovenia and an international jury.

ManuElla was very underrated in 2016 and 'Heart of Gold' was brilliant so I'm pleased to see BQL back too and hopefully here to get their revenge.

Snippets of the songs have been played on Slovenian Radio throughout the week and they're all very handily contained in this recap video



These versions are all in Slovenian as they're having an Icelandic style rule change this year where you have to perform the song in Slovenian in the NF semis and then if you want to go with an English version for May then you switch to that in the final.

BQL look likely to produce something in the same style of Heart of Gold but given Slovenia's televote winners never win outright, be on the lookout for Ina Shai, Lara Kadis and ManuElla and their ballads.
