According to various reports over the internet, Slovak public broadcaster RTVS seems to have approached three potential candidates to represent the country in Eurovision 2011. They are Twiins, backing singer to Tereza Kerndlová in 2008; Mista, runner up at the 2010 national final; and a third act from the talent show ?�?�eskoSlovensk?�?? SuperStar.

As already reported, the Slovak broadcaster RTVS will reveal all the details concerning their Eurovision 2011 representative on February 18th.

Now we know, according to several online media such as the newspaper HospodárskeNoviny, that the country's public broadcaster currently holds a list of three potential candidates to represent Slovakia in Düsseldorf. One of them is Mista, who came second at last year's Slovak national final. Should she be chosen, it is likely that she would compete in Eurovision with the song Vendetta, her latest hit.

Another shortlisted act is the duo Twiins. In a recent interview given to the Slovak blog eurovisionSK, the girls stated that they have been approached by the broadcaster towards a possible participation in Eurovision. They joined the Czech delegation back in 2008 as backing singers to Tereza Kerndlová. You can listen to one of their songs below.

The third name would be from the talent show ?�?�eskoSlovenská SuperStar.

Slovakia was drawn to participate in the first half of the second semifinal, to be held on May 12th.
