Nina Kraljic returned to The Voice of Croatia to perform her Eurovision song “Lighthouse”. Nina, who won the first series of The Voice last year, delivered the first formally staged live performance of “Lighthouse” giving fans a taste of what she may bring to Stockholm.

Nina took to The Voice – Najljepsi glas Hrvatske stage, bathed in moody blue lighting. She wore the same black dress that she initially debuted at her Eurovision in Concert performance.

The dress, designed by acclaimed Croatian fashion designer Juraj Zigman, has gothic haunted forest themes with flamboyant kimono-style arms. Zigman will also design the dress Nina will wear in Stockholm.

Nina performed the song in front of images of nighttime coastal scenes, including wild weather, picking up on the maritime theme of her song, rather than the sci-fi interpretation of the music video.

Do I need to say again how I love her voice, how the song is great and how I like everything about her performance and I want Croatia at least in a top 3? Hahaha
Amazing!
But blue lights/background is too obvious for that kind of song. I hope that in Eurovision stage she will perform with yellow or green screen

I wish I can get used to this song. She is in between my top 15 to 20. Her vocals are on point and does deserve a seat to the grand finals. Croatia is going to have another successful and memorable Eurovision singer.

This is going to look amazing on the big stage in Stockholm in May! It will definitely gain lots of points from the juries and from southern European countries. A contender.

What a wonderful singer… Nina is maybe “too simple” for Eurovision audience in the terms of performance, but than again her simplicity is what I live the most. She’s so honest, graceful and emotional without being pretentious. And that beautiful voice…oh God…
I read somewhere that some people call her “ugly”. Well, Nina may nit be your classical beauty queen face, but for me she’s pretty in her own, unique way. Nina, you are my favorite and I wish you the best of luck!

Thanks for sharing this, Wiwibloggs. I realise there has been over-publicity on Nina recently, but in my opinion this video was worth showing. She really is mezmorizing, has a great voice and will be a great competitor in Stockholm. 🙂

And I would love to hear Zara sing Lighthouse, not impossible if Lighthouse wins. That being said while Nina is amazing for Eurovision standards and she is my current number one, her voice lacks a strong identity and power that Zara has.

Quite a discovery, this girl from Croatia with that song. I wasn’t paying much attention until now, but I have to say I like this entry very much. Nina has a lovely voice, her song is beautiful and she seems to be a great person. I hope she’ll place high.

Lol the reason why they are not covering anyone else is because NO ONE else is doing anything! What would you like them to do? They literally just posted a unnecessary article on Serhat performing his shite song on Greek television? Tell me. Who else is doing something apart from these countries you say that Wiwibloggs is lobbying? Jesus. I appreciate you Wiwibloggs, because you provide quality content related to Eurovision for all of the Eurovision fans all around the world. Well, quality content at least for me.
