And apart from singing, composing, writing lyrics and musical arrangements, he is interested in the music industry as a whole. Omar Naber came to fame after he won "Bitka Talentov", which is a talent search contest.

The Slovenian national final (EMA) took place on 6 February at the RTVSLO TV Studios in Ljubljana, hosted by Saša Einsiedler and Saša Gerdej. Unlike previous years, there was only one show and no semifinals. "Stop", sung by Omar Naber, was the choice to go to Kiev. The song was originally a dynamic ballad, but was turned into a rock song for Eurovision. The song is written and composed by Urša Vlašič.

At Eurovision

Because Slovenia failed to qualify in 2004 Omar was forced to compete in the Eurovision semi-final. "Stop" was performed in the semi-final of the Contest but failed to qualify for the final, finishing in 12th place.Therefore, Slovenia will have to compete in the semi-final again in ESC 2006.

The spokesperson who revealed Slovenia's votes for other countries was TV SLO host Katarina Čas.[1]
