The Slovene national pre-selection show will appear in a new look this year, after broadcaster RTVSLO decided to refresh EMA's concept. For the first time, the winner will be chosen through four semi-finals and a big final show. The dates have now finaly been set.
11th January 2004 : first semi-final
18th January 2004: secound semi-final
25th January 2004: third semi-final
1st February 2004: fourth semi-final
15th February 2004: EMA final show in Ljubljana
In each semi-final show the television viewers will choose three favourites by televoting. After 12 paricipants are selected, an international jury will choose another four, which means that on EMA's final evening, there will be 16 participants. The winner will be chosen by a combination of televoting and a proffesional jury.
