roko blazevic jacques houdek dora 2019 winners

Croatia’s Roko is your favourite Eurovision 2019 act so far. The Dora winner’s fanbase is proving resilient, and once more answered the call. Of the 14,098 votes cast, “The Dream” singer secured 2,937 votes (20.83%). That’s a drop from last week’s 4,624, but enough to see him rise from second to first.

He is joined on the podium by Italy’s Mahmood with “Soldi” and Spain’s Miki with “La Venda”.The former is proving to be a gigantic hit, and even broke into the global Spotify charts. He picked up 2,645 votes. Meanwhile, Miki won over 1,186 voters.

The top five is completed by Slovenia’s Zala Kralj & Gašper Šantl and Romania’s Ester Peony.

With 23 songs set to drop between now and the Eurovision submission deadline on 10 March, there will be scarcely time to breathe, let alone run a poll. Therefore, the next such poll will open after all 41 acts have been revealed (RIP “Siren Song” 🙁 ).

You can read the full rankings below.

What do you think of the current standings? Does Croatia deserve to be number one? Who’s your Eurovision favourite? Let us know below.

Hi there this was from so long ago but I have looked through the comments and I am disgusted by the amount of Croatians (not all, mind you) saying that everyone else is racist for not liking Roko’s song. Like come on guys. The song is just really bad, and 99 percent of commenters saying that, including myself, do not have anything against Croatians. And before you say I am from Italy and Slovenia, I was born and live in Perth, Australia.

Right now, I see Croatia as one of the better songs in a relatively weak lineup. However, if this song is revamped, it has potential to be one of my favorite Eurovision songs of the last 3 years.

As a Croatian, I think we have a hard time being self-critical and want to be more relevant because we know how much potential we have, but with stubborn pride and lack of objectivity we will never learn.

That being said, I am still butthurt for Franka’s low placing ;P

People are looking for a reason to throw shade at the Croatian entry. Come on! 🙁 When I first listened to “The Dream”, I knew it would be one of my favorites. After learning that Roko won, I couldn’ quit weeping. I could listen to “The Dream” dozens of times, even if million of people hate it. 🙂

Apparently Roko will be singing an unplugged version of the song similar to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-iY0goHeyU&feature=youtu.be … In addition to this, his song will be supported by a world known cellist Stjepan Hauser, with Roko singing and playing the piano himself. This could be promising!
Here’s a song performed by the late Oliver Dragojevic, with Stjepan Hauser as the cellist who could significantly improve the song “Heroj” as well.

YES this is a LEGIMATE poll. You can see yourself the RESULTS! It says CROATIA wins. True! ROKO is the best SINGER and DREAM is the best SONG. Not just of this YEAR, but of all the YEARS. ROKO makes me so PROUD to be CROATIAN. CROATIA is winning the EUROVISION SONG CONTEST and we WELCOME you all to ZAGREB in 2020.

Racist? People don’t like you because you are white? People from this comment section are definitely not the ones who stood by while the war was happening, the war that happened almost 30 YEARS ago. you need to find better points/excuses. Judging from comments on the Internet only croatians like their song, which is expected given that they selected it. Accept this and move on.

They/we watch eurovision for fun but there are some fans like you or countries like ukraine who think eurovision is political battlefield. Foreigners don’t like your song, full stop.

It is not that they don’t like Croatia or Roko (that is an exceptional singer). They just don’t like “The Dream”. That’s a cheesy and boring song.

For me the best songs are from Croatia,Spain and Albania, also Bilal I like because of her personality and song is ok.
