Slovakia – According to the Slovak newspaper Nový Cas, RTVs, the Slovak national broadcaster, was negotiating with two artists concerning the Eurovision participation in 2012. Months ago, Miro Šmajda was confirmed as the representative of Slovakia, but soon after the singer denied that he had been chosen. Apparently, he did not agree to the terms of the contract and is thus no longer an option for the management of the channel.
Now, the favorite to go to Baku is Thomas Puskailer , a former participant in the local version of Pop Idol in 2009. His first maxi single with the tracks “Sitting on a Cloud,” “By Your Side” and “Life is Good”, was released in December last year. The site eurocontest.cz contacted the singer’s manager, who confirmed the negotiation indirectly saying: “Who will represent Slovakia in Eurovision will finally be revealed at the end of January.” The second option would be Barbora Balúchovú, who is also a former Idol competitor.
Here is one of Puskailer’s hits:
