Slovenia had participated in Eurovision for years as part of Yugoslavia, but after the collapse of the country, Slovenia has participated independently since 1993. The country is a loyal Eurovision participant, but until this day they have not scored very well. They have managed to reach the top ten only three times, of which two seventh places were their best efforts (in 1995 and 2001).
Since the introduction of the semi-finals Slovenia has not fared any better: they have managed to reach the final with only one third of their efforts.
