Slovenia - Blue And Red - ManuElla

Digital release image, the right one
14 - 57 pts in semi 2

ManuElla won her Stockholm ticket by winning the Slovenian selection EMA with her song Blue And Red written by Marjan Hvala, Manuella Brečko and Leon Oblak

ManuElla (Manuella Brečko) already tried to get to Eurovision before. In 2011 she participated in Misija Evrovizija, a talent show style multi week happening. She ended fourth, and only the top three performed a Eurovision candidate song.

Blue And Red is released as a digital single on March 30 through the usual sources. The first digital release image mentions the title Utopian Land, which is of course the Greek entry, but that was soon corrected.
There is a new version for Eurovision. Watch and listen here.
The single release is the new version.

You can download a ManuElla App (Apple and Android) through Manuella's Facebook.
It features music, videos, photos, competitions and all kinds of other interactivities.

  1. The song is now available on Itunes

  2. I bought it this morning, and, it disappeared from the list of sales on Amazon and iTunes, because the title is false "Utopian Land" Instead of "Blue and Red"

  3. Is there a video of the ESC Version?
