Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
The Same Heart-type staging is a major turn-off for Eurovision voters and the song means absolutely nothing to non-Balkan voters.
Over in Slovenia, their Evrovizijska Melodija selection format has yielded a result. Lea Sirk will represent Slovenia in Lisbon with the song Hvala, ne!.
This is another case of a confident women looking like a diva performing a slightly aggressive, non-relatable song. For that reason, Slovenia will struggle to qualify from semi-final 2 and will probably do worse than Hannah’s Straight into Love from 2013.
Lea is vocally fine, but we know that’s not what Hvala, ne! will be judged on. The Same Heart-type staging is a major turn-off for Eurovision voters and the song means absolutely nothing to non-Balkan voters.
Slovenia failed to qualify in 2016 and 2017 with better songs than this.
- Vocally good
- Modern and upbeat
- Too aggressive in presentation
- Lacks a hook for non-Balkan voters
- Malta’s Taboo does it better in English
Can Slovenia escape the clutches of semi-final 2?
