Slovenia was represented by Anžej Dežan with the song "Mr Nobody". The song is written by Urša Vlašič and composed by Matjaž Vlašič.

Eighteen-year-old Anžej Dežan, born on 17 June 1987 in Celje, was one of the youngest performers in Athens. He was a newcomer to this year EMA, but has past experience by providing the backing vocals to Slovenian superstar Nuša Derenda's song in 2005. He originally came to fame on Bitka talentov, the same talent show which discovered Slovenia's 2005 Eurovision singer Omar Naber. Anžej has already recorded a duet with EMA runner-up Saša Lendero. Anžej is a very style conscious young man, and goes through more image and hairstyle changes in a couple of years, than most people manage in a lifetime.

EMA veteran Saša Lendero and her ethnic dance song "Mandoline", won both the televoting and SMS votes while in the end, the jury decided the outcome and Anžej Dežan with the song "Plan B" won the competition, causing much controversy. This was second time in 3 years that voting jury expelled the televoting winner from their votes. In 2004 also Natalija Verboten with Cry On My Shoulder" had won the public vote, but the jury gave her 0 points. If they had get only 1 point - both, Lendero in 2006 or Verboten in 2004 would have won EMA. Many polemics and discussions were raised after this - people and media wondering if jury did this on purpose. More dispute was caused when accusations were made that "Plan B" was a copy of a song called "Santa Maria" sung by Austrian singer Simone, therefore breaking the contest rules. The European Broadcasting Union, however, did not see it as a copy, and therefore the song was not disqualified.

At Eurovision

In the 2006 contest, Anžej performed the English version of the song, "Mr Nobody".

Because Slovenia failed to qualify in 2005 Anžej was forced to compete in the Eurovision semi-final, performed 3rd, following Bulgaria and preceding the Andorra he came 16th with 49 points failing to qualify to the Grand Final. Therefore, Slovenia will have to compete in the semi-final again in ESC 2007.
