BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA 2006: Hari Mata Hari - Lejla

This month's ESC entry - one of the prettiest songs in the contest's history. :-) It was one of the top favorites to win in Athens three years ago. Alas, no such luck ... although it would have been a deserved winner, IMO this is the best entry the Bosnians have ever sent. (They've been competing most years since 1993.) And the performance was just wonderful too. But the song placed 3rd - a very good result, actually. They were only beat by Dima Bilan and, of course, the undefeatable monsters from Finland.

I love this song. It's one of my top favorites from 2006. It's beautiful. :-)

This is Hari Mata Hari, the nightingale of Sarajevo, performing Lejla by Željko Joksimović, Fahrudin Pecikoza-Peca and Dejan Ivanović - they competed for Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Olympic Stadium in Athens on May 20th, 2006.
