Slovakia has just confirmed they're not going to participate after all so Belgrade 2008 will keep its record of 43 participating countries alone. Slovakian TV has been going through a lot of changes recently and had extended time from EBU to sort things out and unfortunately the sorting out ended this way. But they promised to be back - maybe already in 2012! Here's Bez siedmeho neba (Without 7th heaven) by Miro Jaroš. This came 5th in the Slovakian final last year and sounds rather fitting. Besides it was one of my favourites and any excuse to play it again is good!
