Slovenia in the Eurovision Song Contest

Slovenia entered the Eurovision Song Contest 2003, represented by Karmen Stavec with the song "Nanana". The song, performed in Slovene as "Lep poletni dan" (A beautiful summer day), was the winner of the Slovene national final, EMA 2003.

EMA 2003

EMA 2003 was held on 15 February at the Gospodarsko Razstavisce in Ljubljana, hosted by Miša Molk and Peter Poles. Two rounds of voting were held, with the top three songs, selected by 50% televoting and 50% from the votes of an international jury, proceeding to a super final, where the final winner was chosen through 100% televoting.

The final winner was Karmen Stavec with "Lep poletni dan", beating jury favourite Alenka Godec in the super final. The televoting favourite, Bepop, failed to pick up any marks from the jury, coming fourth and failing to qualify to the super final.


16 songs in total competed to receive a place in the super final. The televoting favourite, Bepop, was eliminated after receiving nothing from the jury. The final three qualifiers were Karmen Stavec, Nuša Derenda and Alenka Godec.
