Ana Nikolić (Serbian: Ана Николић) (born September 27, 1978 in Paraćin, Yugoslavia, now Serbia) is a well known Serbian pop singer-songwriter. She won over Serbian audience not only by her song named “Januar”, but also with her attractive appearance and seductive dancing performance which she studied and perfected on Musical Academy in Berlin.

Biography[edit]

Breakthrough[edit]

Ana Nikolić was born on September 27, 1978. in Paraćin and spent her childhood in nearby city of Paraćin. After finishing primary and secondary school, she enrolled in College of Polytechnics in Belgrade and graduated in foot wear design as her major.[1]

Her first public appearance was in 1998. in the music TV game show “3K DUR”, where she sang the song originally performed by Marina Perazić named “Kolačići”. She became media and tabloid favorite mostly because of carefully made image of sexy seductress which suited her perfectly. Still, she does not think of herself as particularly fatal woman for she is aware that she has put a lot of effort in every stage of her life so she would be happy with achieved result, primary in business area.[1]

She released five albums Januar, Devojka od čokolade, Mafia café, Milion dolara and Labilna. On the musical scene she appeared, unlike many of her colleagues, at the age of 25, which, considering many various aspects, was at the same time an advantage and disadvantage.[1]

Eurovision[edit]

Nikolić competed to represent Serbia and Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 with the song Romale, romali, in the end the song finished in 5th place in the national final having scored 46 points. Afterwards it was decided that the country would not participate in the contest in Athens, Greece at all. Romale, romali became a summer hit which was played many times on the commercial Serbian television networks such as RTS, BKTV and Pink TV.

In 2009, Ana was once again in the line-up for representing Serbia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009. She was hotly tipped as the favourite to win Beovizija. On the evening of the semi-final, when the last of the ten qualifiers was about to be announced, several people in the audience cheered Nikolić's name. When host Jovana Janković opened the envelope however, she remarked (in Serbian) "Not Ana," as the final qualifier was Pozitivan Haos instead. Several hours before the final, RTS released a statement that the televotes were not counted properly, and therefore Ana and Ivana Selakov were to have qualified. Ana, however, offended by the mistake, chose not to participate.[2]
