On September 13th, the 46th edition of Slovenska Popevka, the annual song contest for Slovenian artists to present new songs, was held in Ljubljana. Alenka Gotar presented her new duet, Mostovi, sung together with rock band Sons.

Alenka Gotar,the only artist who managed to get Slovenia to the final so far with Cvet z juga in 2007, performed her brand- new song Mostovi (Bridges), a duet with Sons, a promising Slovenian band from Portoroz. Their performance was very well received as Alenka sung- as usual – with all her heart and soul. The fusion of an opera singer with a rock band worked extremely well, and the chemistry on stage was more than noticeable.

Mostovi already is Alenka's fourth single after Cvet z juga, Zenska iz soli, Odidi and Nek to voli kao ja, an emotional song in Croatian, which Alenka wrote for this year's Split festival. She was the only Slovenian representative (and the first one after 20 years) to perform among many Croatian stars like Doris Dragovic, Danijela and Antonija Sola.

Alenka has been quite active in developping her music career. A remarkable fact is also that the lyrics to all her songs except Cvet z juga were written by herself. Currently she is working on her first album which is expected to be released already this year.

Stay tuned to for more information.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
