Slovenia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest twenty-seven times since its debut in 1993. Having only missed the event twice in 1994 and 2000 due to the relegation rule after a poor average score in the 1990s, Slovenia’s best result is seventh position achieved on two occasions; in 1995 with “Prisluhni mi” performed by Darja Švajger and in 2001 with Nuša Derenda and “Energy”. Since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004, Slovenia has qualified for the final on seven occasions. As of 2022, Slovenia has not made it to the top ten since their seventh place finish in 2001, only making it to the thirteenth position in 2002 and 2011.
