Slovenia was represented in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 by Omar Naber with the song "Stop".

Omar Naber was born on 7 July 1981 as Omar Kareem, an Arabic name since his father was Jordanian. Omar is a dental technician and plays piano, guitar and bass piano. And apart from singing, composing, writing lyrics and musical arrangements, he is interested in the music industry as a whole. Omar Naber came to fame after he won "Bitka Talentov", which is a talent search contest.

EMA 2005[edit]

The Slovenian national final (EMA) took place on 6 February at the RTVSLO TV Studios in Ljubljana, hosted by Saša Einsiedler and Saša Gerdej. Unlike previous years, there was only one show and no semifinals. "Stop", sung by Omar Naber, was the choice to go to Kiev. The song is a dynamic ballad, but was turned into a rock song for Eurovision. The song is written and composed by Urša Vlašič.
