Four more songs for Slovakia

Slovakia nears the end of its quarter-final stage tonight, and picks four more songs for the semi-finals that start on 14 February.  Will fans’ favourite Kristina be among them?

STV’s studios in Bratislava  tonight hosted their penultimate quarter-final.  Another 10 acts were vying for four places in the semi-final stages that start on 14 February.  Smola a hrušky were the only participants from 2009, but all eyes seemed to be on fans’ favourite Kristina with her slightly folk number.  The 10 acts were:

Smola a Hrušky – Pridaj si ma

Vierka Ayisi – Je čas zabávať sa

Bystrik – Slnko nespalí

Arzén – Keď som išiel za ránky

Sunlips – Správy v splne

Marcel Berky – Kým sa dá

Dáška Kostovčik – Dážď

Robert Mikla – Voda a oheň

Kristina – Horehonie

Exponent – Zveste lásku z kríža

Again, 100% text (SMS) voting was used to determine the qualifiers.  At the end of proceedings, regular host Martin ‘Pyco’ Rausch announced the results in reverse order.  The final results, with percentages of the vote are:

Kristina – 36.7%

Smola a Hrušky – 12.1%

Robert Mikla – 12.0%

Dáška Kostovčik – 11.6%

Sunlips – 11.5%

Arzén – 5.7%

Exponent – 4.5%

Bystrik – 2.7%

Vierka Ayisi – 2.2%

Marcel Berky – 1.1%

Kristina has received the biggest winning margin of any qualifier so far, and will be one to watch in the later stages.
