EBU has given the Slovenian broadcaster more time to decide whether they are able to participate the song contest or not. The problem of the broadcaster is to find a sponsor to finance the costs of participation.
The new deadline is set for January 17. The semi-final allocation draw, in which all semi-final countries will be drawn into two semi-finals, will take place on January 20. Then, the Heads of Delegations from participating countries will meet in Copenhagen to attend the draw.
