The fourth semifinal has ended in Slovenia and all finalists for Ema 04 are known. Three were determined by tonight's televoting and another four selected by an expert jury among the remaining 20 songs from all 4 semifinals. Tonight's winner was former Miss Slovenia Rebeka Dremelj (photo).
Results of the televoting are:
1. Rebeka Dremelj- Ne boš se igral -4244 votes (2.)
2. Maja Slatinšek- Slovo brez mej -3962 votes (13.)
3. Rožmarinke- Kliše -2264 votes (9.)
The number in parentheses indicates the number under which the song will be performed in the big final, called Ema 04- Izbor, on 15 February in Ljubljana. The winning song is a dance number with a latino feel. She was joined by two male dancers. Maja's song was an RnB flavoured ballada and the string trio Rožmarinke presented a song with lyrics made of one single word (Silence). They proved that they can indeed play their instruments during the interval act.
And finally… the four wildcards for the final go to:
1. Ylenia Zobec- Tvoj glas (7.)
2. Prava stvar- Junak (8.)
3. Tulio Furlanič- O, ženske, ženske (11.)
4. Marijan Novina- Svet se vrti nazaj (15.)
