"Vrag naj vzame" (To hell with it) is a song by Rebeka Dremelj, composed by Josip Miani-Pipi and written by Amon. The song was the Slovenian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade, Serbia.

At Eurovision[edit]

The song was performed at the Slovene national final for the 2008 contest, EMA 2008, in its Slovene language version. The song won the contest, beating second-placed Skupina Langa after losing to her originally in the first round of voting.

After deliberation, Dremelj decided to perform the song in Slovene at Eurovision, instead of performing the English language version, "Heavy Weather".

On the night of the first semi-final, the song performed eight in the running order, following Azerbaijan's Elnur and Samir with "Day After Day" and preceding Norway's Maria Haukaas Storeng and "Hold On Be Strong". At the close of voting, it had received 36 points, placing eleventh in a field of nineteen, failing to reach the final, the fourth time out of five contests that Slovenia has failed to be in the final of the contest.

The song was succeeded as Slovene representative at the 2009 contest by Quartissimo and Martina Majerle with "Love Symphony".
