On 23 December last, Christmas came two days early when Croatian broadcaster HRT revealed the identities of the 16 acts which will compete in Dora 2020 — the countries national final for Eurovision 2020.
Like last year, we probably won’t hear the songs until the broadcast of the national selection on 29 February.
Nonetheless, there’s still plenty to chew over as we know the artists and the titles of their entries.
Here are just three standouts to whet your appetite.
Dora 2020 — Ones to watch
She was the runner-up in the 2019 revival of Dora. And Lorena Bucan will be hoping to do one better this time round. There’s every chance that she could reproduce the “Tower Of Babylon” magic, as two-thirds of that song-writing team are behind her entry once again.
He’s one of Croatia’s biggest rising stars. Handsome with a mellow voice, a Damir Kedzo love ballad could certainly get Croatia back to the Eurovision final. Not to mention melt all of our hearts in the process! A few years back he won the annual summer Splitski Festival with young singer Domenica and “Mi Protiv Nas”. Could he grab an even bigger prize this time around?
Indira is a seasoned singer who is best known for previously being the lead singer in the dance music group, Colonia — who will also be taking part in Dora 2020. Famed for her bold and strong voice, Indira would certainly make an impact for Croatia at Eurovision.
Poll: Which Dora 2020 act are you the most excited for?
So who are you most excited for? Is it one of the three acts showcased above? Perhaps it’s someone else?
Could it be Bojan Jambrosic or Jure Brkljaca who also competed last year?
Regardless of who you’re backing, it’s time to vote in our poll! Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time. Voting ends just before the 16 competing songs are released.
