Barbara Munjas- Ti si tu
And the show starts Barbara Munjas, alocal singer from Opatija, she is very young dressed in an impressive black dress with multi colored sequins. She sings a schlager song accompanied by 3 female backing singers and one male. She is slighlty off key.
Raspashow- Bio bih samo njen
Rasapashow on now, four young men in the band sing a pop rock piece.This is quite a catchy one.
�anamari- Jedino moje
Enter Zanamari and the first ballad of the evening. Not a very catchy one unfortunately.
Kemal Monteno- Poljubi me
A folk song now by kemal. He is an established older singer successful since the 70's. Good vocal skills and the song is a Croatian traditional one. Good strong performance.
Livio Morosin and Miroslav Evačić-Volim ja
Another folk song now, typically Istrian but not very catchy. There are 4 singers on stage, three of them in hats and a bongo.
Antonija Šola-Neka bude zauvijek
Antonija starts on the wrong foot, slightly off key from the beginning.She looks impressive though in a red mini dress, high black boots , belt and tiara.
Ness-Ti si moj
A house/disco song now by Ness. There is a little bit of English in the song. Singer and dancer in bright red trouser suit. Singer seems to be struggling with the tune.
Trio Fantasticus-Nema šanse šećeru
A funny, highly entertaining opera act by the trio who are all but one dressed in black. The last one is wearing knee lenght shorts.Good vocal performance.
Valentina Bralo- Ljubavna priča
Another local singer now, and a very young one too still goes to school. VAlentina wrote this slow love song herself on the beach. Accompanied by two backing singers and dancers also in white.
Danijela Pintaric – Moj svijet
Danjela, the last minute replacement, sings her very slow ballad in a good strong voice. She performs the difficult song in perfection without missing a note. Impressive!
Sabrina-Tra�it ću te
Another ballad follows suit. Sabrina is young and she is wearing a red Knee-length dress. She is accompanied by 3 backing singers in black.
And the third ballad in a row by one of tonight's favorites. Jelena in a baby blue dress sings her slow sad ballad. There are fairy tale characters in the background. The backing singer is dressed as Snowhite.
Brentini-Što je to ljudima
And yet another ballad, a pop one this time by this young singer. He is accompanied by 5 backing singers and he delivers a good performance.
Tina Vukov- Tata
Enters Tina now, dressed in full length leather black trouser suit, sits on a stool and sings a sad moving song called Tata (Dad) about a young girl whose parents' marriage has broken up. She delivers a good performance, hitting evry single note perfectly.
The Sick Swing Orchestra- Šlager pjevač
A change of style and pace now with a jazz tune by a band of six in top hats and a huge guitar.
Anja Šovagović & Galiano Pahor-Teatar
The show closes with lounge music style now, reminiscent of the 50's with lots of drums. Both singers in black. Anja is an actress and the song is appropriately called Teater (Theatre)
