Slovenia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö, Sweden. The Slovenian entry was selected through an internal selection, organised by the Slovenian broadcaster Radiotelevizija Slovenija (RTV Slovenija). Hannah represented Slovenia with the song "Straight Into Love", which failed to qualify from the first semi-final of the contest, placing 16th and scoring 8 points.[1][2][3]

Before Eurovision

Internal selection

On 15 December 2012, RTV Slovenija officially confirmed that the country would participate in the 2013 contest after speculation that a withdrawal was being considered.[4] On 23 January 2013, it was announced that due to time constraints and reduced funding, both the artist and song would be selected internally in cooperation with Radio Val 202 instead of using their national final format EMA.[5][6] The expert committee who would be involved in the both the artist and song selection consisted of:

  • Aleksander Radić – Head of the Slovenian delegation at the Eurovision Song Contest
  • Andrej Hofer – representative of the RTV Slovenija entertainment department
  • Andrej Karoli – music editor for Radio Val 202
  • Blaz Tišler – music editor
  • Mirko Stular – editor-in-chief for Radio Val 202

On 1 February 2013, RTV Slovenija announced Hannah Mancini as the Slovenian entrant at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. Following the announcement of Mancini as the selected artist, several composers were approached with five of them submitting potential entries.[7] The selected song, "Straight Into Love", with lyrics and music by Mancini, was presented during a press conference which took place on 14 February 2013 at the RTV Slovenija studios.[2]

Slovenia was allocated to compete in the first semi-final on 14 May for a place in the final on 18 May.[8] In the first semifinal, the producers of the show decided that Slovenia would perform 3rd, following Estonia and preceding Croatia.[9] On stage, Hannah was joined by backing singers Linda Andrews from the Faroe Islands and Susanne Ørum from Denmark, and three dancers from the Maestro Dance Studio: Anže Škrube, Primož Pavlič and Matic Zadravec.[10][11]

Slovenia failed to qualify from the first semi-final of the competition, placing last (16th) and scoring 8 points.[1][3]

In Slovenia, the semi-finals were broadcast on RTV SLO2 and the final was broadcast on RTV SLO1, with commentary for all shows provided by Andrej Hofer.[12]

The national jury that provided 50% of the Slovenian vote in the first semi-final and the final consisted of: Dušan Hren (director), Urša Vlašič (composer), Darja Švajger (singer — represented Slovenia in 1995 and 1999), Raay (producer/singer) and Katja Koren (singer).[13] The Slovenian spokesperson in the grand final was Andrea F.[14]
