As a singer, Sasa Lendero so far has participated twice in EMA, the Slovenia national final to decide the country's representative for the Eurovision Song Contest. In 2005, Sasa reached 2nd place with Metulj and in 2006, she was set to win the competition with the extremely popular song Mandoline: Being the clear fan favourite, Sasa won both televoting and SMS- voting by a landslide, however, the highly controversial jury voting completely ignored herentry- thus, Sasa ended up on 2nd place again. Both of Sasa's EMA- songs were written by Andrej Babic, a well- known composer among Eurofans having written four entries for four different countries (Portugal 2008, Slovenia 2007, Bosnia and Herzegovina 2005 and Croatia 2003) up to now. In 2009, Andrej Babic is aiming to win EMA yet another time with the composition Love symphony, performed by Quartissimo. As a singer, Sasa has not been competing on EMA again since the questionable incident in 2006. However, having founded her own company, Sasa was the manager of no less than three artists from EMA 2008.
