In the past there were rumors that Slovenia might quit the contest. The country was not successful in the last few years. The only participation in a Eurovision final since 2003 was in 2007 when Alenka Gotar finished 15th with the song Cvet z juga. Last year Ansambel Roka Zlindre & Kalamari came 2nd but last with their song Narodnozabavni Rock in the 2nd semi final. Slovenia will take part in one of the two semifinals on May 10th or May 12th.
