After recent reports, HRT has now officially confirmed The Voice winner Nina Kraljić will represent Croatia at Eurovision 2016!
About Nina Kraljić:
Nina rose the fame when she became the winner of The Voice Croatia in 2015. Since then, the 22-years-old singer has achieved three nominations in the Porin awards and the opportunity to represent Croatia in the biggest TV show, the Eurovision Song Contest. After winning The Voice, she signed a contract with Universal Music which will be in charge of producing her Eurovision entry and debut album to be released in the coming months.
“It’s a big honour for me that after two years of absence from the Eurovision Song Contest, it is Nina Kraljić, last year’s winner of The Voice, who will represent us”, Croatian Head of Delegation Željko Mesar states. “She will compete in the First Semi-Final and we believe in her success and her trust that she can qualify for the Final on 14 May and sing in front of 200 million TV viewers. Her song will be very interesting, tailored to Nina’s voice, and she will represent us in the best possible way, which only she can do.”
“My song will remain a surprise”, Nina explains. “But it’s certain that it will be in my style, with a modern twist.” Nina Meden from Universal Music Croatia adds: “We are currently recording her debut album, which will not only include her first single Zaljuljali smo svijet but also her song for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.”
The song that Nina Kraljić will perform in Stockholm will be premiered on March 9th.
