Three of them already represented Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest. Magazin & Lidija reached the 6th place with the song Nostalgija in 1995. In 2000 Goran Karan finished 9th with the song Kada zaspu andeli and most recently in 2002, Vesna Pisarović (pictured) reached the 11th place for Croatia with the song Everything I want.
