Before Eurovision[edit]

EMA 2011[edit]

EMA 2011 was the 16th 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 2011. Ten artists, invited by RTV Slovenija, competed in EMA 2011.

Final[edit]

EMA 2011 took place on 27 February 2011 at the RTV Slovenija studios in Ljubljana, hosted by Klemen Slakonja. The winner was selected over two rounds of voting. In the first round, a three-member jury panel selected two entries to proceed to the second round: "Vanilija" performed by Maja Keuc and "Ladadidej" performed by April. The jury consisted of Darja Švajger (singer, vocal coach and 1995 and 1999 Slovenian Eurovision entrant), Mojca Mavec and Severina (2006 Croatian Eurovision entrant). In the second round, a public vote selected "Vanilija" performed by Maja Keuc as the winner.
