Lana Jurčević or Lidija Bačić please. I desperately want to love your entry. I want you in my top 10! 2006 was so long ago xhmmm

Franka was wonderful, but her song was awful. Same goes for Roko. If it weren't for their half-baked songs they would have done well since both of them sang the hell out of their songs. They deserved better songs.

It's as if the delegation forgets that they're entering a song contest- having a great performer is only one part of it, you gotta have a great song to go along with it.

If HRT wants another Dora they need to start planning now.
Announce it ASAP for February so artists have time to decide if they want to participate and write/find a song. And also so that have enough time to reschedule their plans for February.

There is, you just have to start sending good entries... I mean the 2019 entry !? 2016 was the last decent entry you sent and it made it to the finals, I liked 2012 but I can see why it didn't have mass-appeal, however we would have to go all the way back to 2006 to have a really good Croatian entry and it's been your best result for the past 10+ years...

Meh, got no optimism here.

It’s pointless to call for this or that performer when the problem is in songs. And staging. And literally everything else but performers.

I donīt care who will sing for us.

I wanna know WHO will be our composer and songwriter! Do we even have anybody competent? Nobody who I know of, thatīs for sure.

I have yet to hear any of our composers creating something that is current, but still has that dose of originality. Because whenever any of our composers and songwriters try to make something that is supposed to be unique, it always ends up being a blatant copy of something that is already popular.


So yes, just like somebody already posted, there is no hope for us (unless we pay foreign authors to make us a song).

with the roksana wegiel juggernaut rising to finally fulfill the prophecy of the junior winner that will become a senior winner and be crowned our eternal overlord, maybe croatia should try to defy destiny with the original recipe

HE WAS EUROPE'S FIRST LOVE AND HE ALREADY DEFIED A PROPHECY BY WINNING FROM THE SECOND SPOT IN THE RUNNING ORDER also he is like hugely talented and even participated in that medley in this year's dora so he doesn't hate eurovision lol

(for anyone who is doubting the power and impact of roksana: a picture of her appears in the first page of the dino jelusic google image search. SHE IS EVERYWHERE. SHE IS COMING FOR US.)

The mention of Dino Jelusić has led me to his Wikipedia page, which begged a question for me: do TSO make ANY non-Christmas music? Or do they just haul their arses out of bed for the month of December then do nothing 11 months of the year?

TSO vocalists do have a great track record for me at Eurovision; I love me some "I Stand."

mariah carey has influenced an entire lifestyle for a lot of bands and artists. legends only.

also, the information that gabi has also worked in the TSO has strengthened my dino jelusic suggestion/wish. i love i stand. SEND HIM SEND HIM SEND HIM.

Croatia usually announces its participation quite late (around September).
We don't know what's going to happen but the broadcaster simply didn't give an answer...its too early

It's a ploy from HRT so that Jacques Houdek won't have time to get ready before the submission deadline when they officially announce their participation. They're cunning. xqueenbitch

It's more likely that he's already been there and convinced the wall in HRT building responsible for Eurovision to have another try :lol:

Why did you have to give me a reality check? :(:mrgreen: I came here peacefully and unarmed, trying to raise the Croatians' morale. :p

Please someone make Croatia great again! You guys seem to have disappeared from the Eurovision map over the last two years in that you were considered "dead on arrival". It has to change.

Do you think Dora will be back next year?

I mean, it would be hilarious if they made all that campaign here in ::hr about the big return of Dora this year, only to pretend like nothing happened next year.
But apparently The Voice is scheduled to end in February, so they might use that instead. Let’s hope Jacques won’t be in its jury again. :lol:

Keeping this for the records


i was looking for something else and then

the universe literally bended itself backwards to make portugal win just so a shade thrown at gianlucatomoe would be warranted and justified.

you have your instructions for 2018, europe.

If they announce Dora and everything a bit earlier, we may have a chance to see some more famous singers :D

For Dora date, my guess is it will be the week after The Voice final, so most likely 29th February

I guess so!
Actually, HRT announced it is autumn program scheme. It was special event, even Severina (2006 representative) has been special guest and had performances. When it was word about music program they told they have prepared 3 shows: The Voice, Singing with the stars and Dora 2020 - selection for esc representative! xheart xcheer
So, they already plan Dora and via this way chose Croatian representative so that means Croatia is in! xheart xcheer

@Hele:

Thatīs great!! I have to admit that Croatia used to be one of my favourite countries in the contest, especially their entries of 1998 and 1999 were wonderful!! Their last attempts on the other side were pretty bad, Roko this year was my personal low point.

Hopefully theyīll finde a way back to their glory days, Iīm crossing my fingers from Germany!!

I was looking for this song for a long time. It would have been good if they had represented cro. They placed 2bd behind feminnem. Tbh this was much more professional entry of feminnem than back in 2005.

The tender for Dora 2020 is open. Basically, nothing has changed since last year, until 15th December the submission perion is open, artists that were chosen have time until 15th January to give HRT a karaoke version (it's early in the morning and my brain needs coffee) and a stage plan, and Dora 2020 will be somewhere in February, unless HRT decides the opposite.
