No final for Slovenia at Eurovision song contest

Turin – Last Pizza Slice (LPS) did not make it past the semi-final of the Eurovision song contest, the second year in a row that the Slovenian entrant has remained without the much coveted final.

The high-school band from Celje, which was created in 2018, performed Disko, an uplifting retro blend of pop and funk but with sad lyrics about a painful breakup.

The standout feature of their performance was a giant disco ball, alluding to the name of the song, the Slovenian word for disco.

“We’re very grateful for the whole experience,” singer Filip Vidušin said after their performance. “We did what we wanted to do. We put on a show for Europe.”

Ten of the 17 countries featured in the first semi-final made the cut.
