Beautiful mountains. A peaceful capital city. Wonderful port cities. These are all things we associate with Slovenia. But now there’s another wonderful connection: angelic voices. Ula Lozar, the 12-year-old from Ljubljana, released her Junior Eurovision 2014 entry yesterday. Entitled “Nisi Sam” (Your Light), the song speaks for itself. Close your eyes, sit back, and breathe it all in.

Of course, your initial thoughts are “This is the Slovene entry?!”— and I don’t blame you! For a country that usually has very weak efforts when it comes to adult Eurovision, they certainly are trying hard for the Junior trophy. It’s a ballad, which can be tricky with children. However, a ballad won last year, and this is the closest we have to last year’s winner without being an obvious rip-off. Put simply, it’s beautiful. It is the quality of a winner, and I’ll be darned if it places out of the top 3. Most of us were certainly planning on getting a flight to Limassol next November….but now we’re hoping Adria Airlines has some great deals next year! The official JESC YouTube channel posted a cute video showing Ula’s reaction to her selection by RTVSLO. You’ll cry at how adorable she is in it! http://youtu.be/8b9pdou06uM What are your thoughts? Could we be in Ljubljana or Piran next year? Please, let us know in the comments!

Ula Lozar – “Nisi Sam” Lyrics

You’ll never know how it feels inside
So many reasons why
I’ve been feeling down and complicated
As I look inside my head

V oceh gori moj in tvoj sijaj
Ce to si dovoliš
Prvi se koraki težki zdijo
A nocem, da zbežiš

And I can see the light, your light
It’s shining on me
And I’m ready to be an angel oh your angel
I’m looking for you and I know I can see the light
Uuuuu in your eyes
Haaaa…

V oceh gori moj in tvoj sijaj
Ce to si dovoliš
Prvi se koraki težki zdijo
A nocem, da zbežiš

In vedi, da sem
Zate tukaj zdaj
Ker skupaj je lahko
Ko hudo je, roko mi svojo daj
Da stisnem te mo?no
Nisi sam!

Zato sva tu in zdaj
Da kdaj, polepšava dan
Za ljudi, ki ne znajo k sanjam
In poklanjam ti ta svoj nasmeh
Veš, nikoli res nisi sam
Nisi sam!

Zato sva tu in zdaj
Da kdaj, polepšava dan
Za ljudi, ki ne znajo k sanjam
In poklanjam ti ta svoj nasmeh
Veš, nikoli res nisi sam
Nisi sam!

It’s very good, deserves a top 3 finish at least! I still prefer Russia (just because… that voice is too big for her body, it’s incredible!) and The Netherlands, just because of the of how catchy it is. (EH EH EH EH EH OH OH OH OH OH. Round and around and around). Good luck Ula!

I like this song…I just don’t know if it will have an appeal among junior fans of the contest. The juries will definitely put this among the top scorers.

This is absolutely amazing and my new number one. Ula is just so adorable and has an amazing voice. The song sounds like something you’d hear from Jessie J or Beyonce. My only critique is that I’d like more Slovene and less English, but that doesn’t stop how amazing the song is.
