Slovenia: ManuElla

Slovenia ManuElla



With an appealing country backbeat and a set of Taylor Swift-style vocals, ManuElla knows her colour spectrum inside out and she’s already proven that she can deliver live – so all that stands in her way is keeping the yodelling in check.

And she wouldn’t do too badly in a TayTay look-a-like contest either… that’ll help.

All Kinds of Everything: interview with ManuElla

Babushki4 vs. Lordi4


The grannies because of the vitality at their age, Lordi because of the idea behind the presentation of the song.

ABBA4 vs. Eurovision Song Contest 2014


They have a remarkable music history and hits that are still well known among all generations.

What does the Slovenian public think of Eurovision?

Our national selection “EMA” is the most popular TV show among the Slovenian public. That’s why I hope that they will have the chance to enjoy my performance in the semi-final as well as the final of Eurovision Song Contest.

Do you have any rituals before going on stage?

Before I go on stage I close my eyes, take a deep breath and relax myself.

Who is your favourite Eurovision act of all time?

Celine Dion and ABBA. Both are legends who made worldwide careers.

How do you normally watch the Eurovision Song Contest?

If I do not have any obligations I usually watch Eurovision with my family. We have always had a great time, we evaluate the performances and enjoy the competition. Last year I watched the festival by myself and commented on the show with my father on the phone.



Hello Europe, it’s Camilla calling! Here are the points from the House of Apcar vote.

According to my own personal preference, I have awarded points to all 43 acts entering this year’s contest using the EBU’s scoring system (12, 10 and 8-1 points).
