Croatia’s entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 was chosen on 4 March using the Dora competition in the seaside resort of Opatija, the place where the first Dora was held. Severina Vučković was chosen with the song "Moja štikla" (My stiletto), which was described as a turbo-folk song with humorous lyrics and Balkan folk motifs. The lyrics were written by Severina, the music by Boris Novković (Croatian representative in 2005) and Franjo Valentić, and arrangement by popular Bosnian-born musician Goran Bregović. Due to Serbia & Montenegro’s withdrawal from the contest this year, Croatia automatically qualified for the final based on the previous year's performance, eventually coming 13th with 56 points.

Severina was born 21 April 1972 in Split, Croatia, then Yugoslavia. As a child she took part in numerous children festivals and musicals. When she was 17, she recorded her first album Severina for Croatian record company Orfej. In 1991 she started recording for Tutico and became one of the greatest stars of Croatian music. She won many festival awards and her albums achieved high sales. She achieved international fame when her home porn video was published on the Internet in 2004. Severina previously attempted to reach Eurovision in 2000.
