According to Mario Simunovic, Claudia's manager, the artist was not happy with the song itself. She had originally submitted two songs and she was hoping that the jury would select the second one, Samo ti mi daj, a house style song by Igor Relic.

Instead of Claudia Ti si tu will be performed by Barbara Munjas, a relatively new singer, songwriterand model. Barbara, a graduate of Fresh Talents Music Project- same as Claudia-sings all kinds of music: jazz, pop, funk but mostly house.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
