Last year, Slovenia debuted at Junior Eurovision with Ula Lozar, a talented young star, and this year, they hoped to find another pocket sized superstar to follow on and improve on their debut result. To choose their act, Slovenia held a Mini EMA – for those who follow Eurovision, you will know of EMA, the Slovenian format for choosing their Eurovision act – and well, Mini EMA was the same, but with kids!
Leni and Lina Kuduzovic were lucky enough to win the jury votes in previous semi-finals, however the jury had no influence in the final of mini EMA. Instead, the public had full control over who they wanted to see represent them in Sofia later this year, and they decided that they wanted Lina Kuduzovic to fly the flag with the song titled Prva Ljubezen.
The song was written by the young singer herself, alongside Maraaya who represented Slovenia at Eurovision 2015, and also co-wrote last year’s Junior Eurovision Song, Nisi Sam. Listen to the song below and tell us what you think!
