Stockholm’s Hard Rock Cafe has hosted music legends including The Jackson 5, The Temptations, Miles Davis and Iron Maiden. And on May 11 it will host some of your favourite Eurovision 2016 stars as part of the inaugural #WiwiJam. Kicking off at 6pm and running until late, the event is free and open to everyone. Due to overwhelming interest, you’ll need a ticket to enter. You can get your ticket here. Come listen to the stars, meet the team behind wiwibloggs and absorb the atmosphere of one of Stockholm’s premiere music venues. We advise you to arrive early — it’s going to be heaving.

Nina Kraljic at the #wiwijam

There’s a Croatian sensation guiding us to the Hard Rock and her name is Nina Kraljic. Our girl is one of the rising stars of the Croatian music scene, having already touched the hearts of millions en route to winning The Voice last year.

Her career hasn’t slowed since then. She followed up her win with her first single “Zaljuljali Smo Svijet”, won the prestigious Porin award for Best Newcomer, and has consistently been one of the bookies top picks for Eurovision 2016. You can’t dim her “Lighthouse”

We are totally feeling her song, which pulls Croatia’s Eurovision team firmly into 2016.

The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — has a lot of time for Nina and “Lighthouse”.

One juror wrote that “Nina’s voice is gorgeous, so crystal clear and able to deliver delicate notes with strength and power,” while another said her sound conjures up Foxes, Ellie Goulding, and Marina and the Diamonds.

Nina is the first artist to join our guest list for the #wiwijam, but there are plenty of surprises in the pipeline.

Check back soon for more!

Sorry for my endless conversation with Nicky91, I will try to post less comments. I understand that it’s difficult for you (and for everyone) to read all these comments.

@light star Thank you for sharing your thoughts but the comment was not sent to you. I do not know him personally just from the interviews but good to know that somebody knows him better than me.

I hope Freddie will not attend on this event. I would not let him act among those smiling killers like Deban and William.
I have not got any opportunity to thank you that great hungarian Wiwi review. So thank you guys, you made great job again! I wish you thunder and lightning cause you like that.
PS: Denise is not insane, but she was alone among 3 haters. I do not know why.

yeah, i’m also a mentor in my x factor game at this is bigbrother forums 🙂 , i’m mentoring the overs category 28 or older

and omg, at the Molly and Ira topic on here, people are saying Molly should take over from Ira, well really pathetic from some people, Molly can just hit the high note, while Ira can sing the rest of the song flawlessly 🙂

I agree with you once again! I think that Croatia’s song is a masterpiece and Slovenia’s song is really underrated! It’s a very good country song.

that’s a great song for the Wiwi Jam, this will qualify from semi final 1, maybe first place or second place in the voting 🙂 , 110% sure of that
