Regina (born Irena Jalšovec, 4 July 1965, Murska Sobota, Yugoslavia — now Slovenia) is a Slovenian singer, best known for her participation in the 1996 Eurovision Song Contest.

Eurovision Song Contest

Regina has made seven appearances in the Slovenian Eurovision Song Contest selection, EMA, as follows:[1]

  • 1993: "Naj ljubezen združi vse ljudi" - 4th
  • 1996: "Dan najlepših sanj" - 1st
  • 1998: "Glas gora" - 3rd
  • 2001: "Zaljubljena v maj" - 10th
  • 2002: "Ljubezen daje moč" - Semi-final
  • 2004: "Plave očij" - 12th
  • 2005: "Proti vetru" - 9th

The success of "Dan najlepših sanj" in 1996 earned Regina the right to represent Slovenia in the 41st Eurovision Song Contest. The song survived the audio-only pre-qualifying round held in March that year, but at the contest itself, held in Oslo on 18 May, could only manage to place 21st of the 23 entries.[2]

Regina has released seven albums and currently combines her singing and voiceover career with audio production work.
