Slovenia's Maraaya Headlines Eurovision Final


Maraaya, the stage name of songwriter Raay and singer Marjetka, qualified in Thursday's semi-finals and have been widely praised as one of the best songs this year.

But Eurovision is unpredictable and votes are often distributed in regional voting blocks.

Bookmakers odds place Maraaya in the top half of the rankings, which are topped by Sweden, Russia and Italy.

Slovenia has never finished higher than seventh at Eurosong - in 2001 with Nuša Derenda the dance song "Energy" and seven years earlier with Darja Švajger's ballad "Prisluhni mi" (Listen to Me).
