Danijela Martinovic represented Croatia in the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest after winning the national final selection. Her song "Neka mi ne svane" was one of twenty songs presented in the national final, which was held on 6 March 1998 at the Crystall Ballroom of the Hotel Kvarner in Opatija, accompanied by the big orchestra of Croatian Radio Television. Daniela Trbovic and Ljudevit Grguric-Grga hosted the event, and the winning song was chosen primarily by jury voting - 20 juries - one each in the 20 Croatian provinces, plus a 21st jury whose votes came from the televoting public.[1]
