Slovenia was represented in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 by Omar Naber with the song "Stop". The song was originally a dynamic ballad, but was turned into a rock song for Eurovision. The song is written and composed by Urša Vlašič.

Omar Naber was born on 7 July 1981 as Omar Kareem, an Arabic name since his father was Jordanian. Omar is a dental technician and plays piano, guitar and bass piano. And apart from singing, composing, writing lyrics and musical arrangements, he is interested in the music industry as a whole. Omar Naber came to fame after he won "Bitka Talentov", which is a talent search contest.

Before Eurovision

EMA 2005

EMA 2005 was the 10th edition of the Slovenian national final format Evrovizijska Melodija (EMA). The competition was used by RTV Slovenija to select Slovenia's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2005.

Competing entries

103 entries were received by RTV Slovenija during a submission period. An expert committee selected thirteen artists and songs for the competition from the received submissions. An additional spot was reserved for Omar Naber, winner of the RTV Slovenija talent show Bitka Talentov (Battle of talents).


EMA 2005 took place on 6 February 2005 at the RTV Slovenija studios in Ljubljana, hosted by Saša Einsiedler and Saša Gerdej. In the first round, the top three entries were selected to proceed to the superfinal: "Metulj" performed by Saša Lendero, "Stop" performed by Omar Naber and "Pojdi z menoj" performed by Rebeka Dremelj. In the superfinal, "Stop" performed by Omar Naber was selected as the winner.

At Eurovision

Because Slovenia failed to qualify in 2004 Omar was forced to compete in the Eurovision semi-final. "Stop" was performed in the semi-final of the contest but failed to qualify for the final, finishing in 12th place. Therefore, Slovenia will have to compete in the semi-final again in ESC 2006.

The spokesperson who revealed Slovenia's votes for other countries was TV SLO host Katarina Čas.[1]
