In 2009, Slovakia returned to the Eurovision Song Contest after eleven years and was represented by Kamil Miculcik and Nela Pocisková with the song Let' tmou. The duo finished 18th in the second semi final thus not qualifying for the final. In 2010, the country will compete in the first semi final of the Eurovision Song Contest on 25th May.
