The hype is real, y’all! Croatia will stage their first national selection since 2011 in just a few days time.
And yesterday Eurovision HRT revealed the snippets of all 16 entries competing in Dora.
The snippets are really short — only 20 seconds each! But that’s just enough to whet our appetites for a while.
The broadcaster won’t release the songs in full until the show, as to create more suspense on the big night. The thinking goes that a casual Eurovision viewer at home usually hears the song only once. Fair, fair!
Let’s take a look at the 16 snippets competing this Sunday.
Jer ste vi to tražili – poslušajte isje?ke pjesama s Dore 2019.! ?Zabranjeno je svako kopiranje video i/ili audio snimaka i postavljanje na radijske, televizijske i digitalne kanale!

DORA 2019: Everything you should know
Unlike in previous editions of Dora, this year HRT will give us only one night. The contest remains in the same location as in the past — that’s the coastal town of Opatija. But contrary to previous editions, it will be held in the Marino Cvetkovic sport hall, which can seat around 1, 200 people inside. That’s a small improvement from 900-person Crystal Hall (no, not the one in Baku) could host in its day.
The 50-50 combination of televote and regional jury will determine the winner. In the case of a tie, the public vote will prevail. Power to the people!
