Before Eurovision

EMA 2004

EMA 2004 was the 9th edition of the Slovenian national final format Evrovizijska Melodija (EMA). The competition was used by RTV Slovenija to select Slovenia's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2004.

Format

EMA 2004 consisted of four semi-finals on 11, 18, 25 January and 11 February 2004 and a final on 15 February 2004. Thirty-two artists competed in EMA 2004, with 8 songs in each semi-final. In the four semi-finals, 4 songs qualified to the final as three songs were selected by the Slovenian public and the other song was selected by the jury. The public vote in the semi-finals were open for 5 minutes during an interval act of Eurovision medleys performed by the semifinal participants. The winning song in the final was selected over two rounds of voting: in the first round, the combination of points from the public vote and a jury panel selected three songs out of the sixteen finalists to proceed to a superfinal. In the superfinal, public televoting exclusively determined the winner.

All shows took place in Hall A of the Gospodarsko Razstavišče in Ljubljana, hosted by Miša Molk (final-only), Peter Poles and Bernarda Žarn. Poles and Žarn appeared in the final as co-presenters in the green room as well as being the spokespeople of the public vote results.

Competing entries

83 entries were received by RTV SLO. A four-member jury then selected 32 songs from the received submissions to compete in the national final.

Controversy

Like in many previous editions of EMA, the public televote and the jury awarded conflicting scores. This caused some controversy, because the strongest televote favorite Natalija Verboten, received 0 points from the jury. Similarly, Bepop in 2003, Karmen Stavec in 2002, and Tinkara Kovač in 1999 were also televote favorites. These entries usually came 2nd, or failed to qualify for the semifinals, because the points awarded by the jury outweighed the points they received from the televotes. The controversy resulted in the 2005 EMA scores basing solely on the results of the televote.

At Eurovision

For the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, a semi-final round was introduced in order to accommodate the influx of nations that wanted to compete in the contest. Because Slovenia placed 23rd at the 2003 contest, country was forced to compete in the first Eurovision semi-final, held on 12 May 2004. They performed 16th, following Macedonia and preceding the Estonia It finished on second last 21st place with only 5 points, failing to qualify to the Grand Final. Therefore, Slovenia will have to compete in the semi-final again in ESC 2005.
