He ran the competition Klemen Slakonja, who initially joked that it was a carnage Saturday and coincidentally also Emma who is “the feast of our inequality, by homemade chiming.” Twenty-five years he honored Ema by imitating all the winners so far.
The Superfinalist was selected by a three-member jury in the first round of the competition Darja Schweiger, Nusha Derenda and Maja Keuc. The winning song was then determined by listeners and viewers with telephone voices.
The ten songs and performers featured on this year's Emma were selected by a commission consisting of a musician from 74 entries Raiven, Head of publishing activities of ZKP RTV SLO Mojca Menart and music editor of Wave 202 Jernej Vene.
Saxony and Parvani Violet were the winners of Emma Fresch. The online pre-selection of Emma Fresch gave young, yet-to-be-established musicians the opportunity to introduce themselves to a wider audience and, along with established musicians, compete for a ticket to the Eurovision Rotterdam.
In addition to the contestants, last year's winners appeared on the stage of Ema Zala Kralj and Gasper Chantle, who represented Slovenia at the 64th Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv. They introduced the song Me & My Boi from the new album 4, released this year on Valentine's Day.

Slovenia has been sending its representative to this European music festival, which is visited by more than 200 million people every year, since 1993, ever since she tried to convince her with the song “A rainy day”. She then took part in the competition every year, except in 1994 and 2000, when she had to drop out due to poor results.
