Back in 2011, she sang The man is magical on the Eurovision stage in Düsseldorf. And now, six years later, Danica “Nina” Radojicic has married her magical man in Belgrade.
Nina and her chosen one wed on 14 September in a traditional Serbian Orthodox ceremony. The civil service followed a few hours later at the restaurant where the wedding celebration took place. When folks are high on love you don’t want them walking far, right?
Nina’s husband is relatively unknown to the public, but a post on Instagram reveals his surname to be Prodanovic.
Nina represented Serbia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with the song “Caroban“, and wowed everyone with her impressive vocals and 60s mod staging.
The retro pop tune captured the juries’ hearts, but the audience, who had expected another ethno-influenced song from Serbia, were less impressed. Eventually, Nina ended up in fourteenth place in the final.
Shortly after Eurovision, it was reported that Nina had been signed by PGP RTS, a record label owned by Serbian public broadcaster RTS, and that she was working on her debut album. The record never materialised and the Twiggy-lookalike faded into obscurity.
In the meantime, Nina moved to Melbourne, Australia to pursue a PhD at the University of Melbourne. She had previously earned her bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from the University of Belgrade.
“I imagine myself as the manager of a prestigious pharmaceutical company, and I hope that with my marks and my average grade I will succeed in it,” Nina told the press last year.
“But I will never give up on music. Whether it is just me by myself playing the piano at my house, or publicly, that is completely irrelevant.”
Nina still performs at occasional gigs in clubs in Australia. She even sang a little bit at her own wedding, performing “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life“. Interestingly, the main singer at Nina’s celebration was Mirna Radulovic, who represented Serbia at Eurovision 2013 as a part of Moje 3.
