EMA 2009 was the 14th 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 2009.

Format

For the first time since 2002, EMA 2009 consisted of a semi final on 31 January 2009 and a final on 1 February 2009.[5][6] Twenty artists in total competed in EMA 2009, with 14 songs in the semi-final alongside with 6 pre-qualified songs. In the semi-final, 8 songs qualified to the final. The voting process was also revamped with the combination of points from a public vote and a jury panel determining the results of both the semi-final and the final.[7][8]

Artists and composers were able to submit their entries to the broadcaster between until 28 November 2008. 113 entries were received by the broadcaster during the submission period, 6 of them being submitted by foreign composers (2 from Ireland; 2 from the United Kingdom; 1 from Sweden and 1 from Germany).[9] An expert committee consisting of Darja Švajger, Jernej Vene and Mojca Menart selected fourteen artists and songs for the semi-final of the competition from the received submissions. The six pre-qualified songs were written by composers who RTV Slovenija invited for the competition based on their success on EMA in recent years and their performance in the Slovenian charts. The composers both created the song and selected the performer for their entry. The invited composers were:

  • Aleš Klinar
  • Boštjan Grabnar
  • Jan Plestenjak
  • Jože Potrebuješ
  • Matjaž Vlašič
  • Omar Naber
