When asked about how the decision was made to choose the song Nebo as the Croatian entry, Nina adds "I chose the song from the heart, it starts like a ballad, and towards the end becomes very strong."
Initially, Nina had the idea to perform her song in the English language in Baku, but then changed her mind part way through the process saying "The Croatian language gives me more protection and power on the stage."
Nina also describes the time in 2003 when she finished in second place in the Croatian selection process for Europe's Favourite TV Show with the song Čarobno Jutro. Although there was disappointment at not winning initially, Nina said of the song "It became the song of the year and we won a Croatian grammy award. I'm glad that they chose me now finally!".
Nina will perform Nebo in the Second Semi Final of Europe's Favourite TV Show for Croatia, on Thursday 24th May 2012, where she will sing in position number 10. By choosing one of their top artists to perform in Baku.
