Mia Dimsic Guilty Pleasure Croatia Eurovision 2022

The race to Turin is over in Croatia. Mia Dimšic has won Dora 2022 with her track “Guilty Pleasure” and will now represent Croatia at Eurovision.

Tonight’s show saw 14 acts perform, but only one act could come out on top. Mia Dimsic beat out a star-studded lineup featuring the likes of ToMa, Mia Negovetić and Bernarda, the latter two of which were on their third consecutive attempts to fly the flag for Croatia at Eurovision.

Performing 14th in the running order, Mia Dimsic was fresh in viewers heads. With her guitar and interpretive dance partner, she enchanted both the public and the jury to win a landslide victory with a 78-point margin over runner-up Marko Bosnjak.

If you are quoting, then do not quote selectively! He said that having an internal selection would save money but in the end it is not an option because – as always in Croatia – corruption is involved. The point of his article is what he said about Måneskin referring to the “experts” from the HRT: “[…] ili kad su lani na Eurosongu pobijedili Måneskin koji bi kod nas propali.“ Who in fact would fail at us because such a quality “experts” like Štengl would never ever recognize.

Ono sto je htio reci da Måneskin “strucnjaci” poput Štengla i kompanije uopce ne bi uvrstili na Doru! A za tu famoznu Miu N. je takodjer autor savrseno iznio cinjenice. Da, opet cinjenice!

Dora je po pjesmama bila izvrsna…? Ne znam samo u kojem paralelnom univerzumu ovakav šund može biti izvrstan. Pjesme su toliko “upecatljive” da se ne mogu sjetiti skoro nijedne melodije… A tek ona uvijena atmosfera, nezanimljivi voditelji… Nikakav show program, šarm, humoristi?nost… ?ista nula. To je projekt javne televizije koja se velikim dijelom financira novcem pretplatnika. Kao takav, nebi trebao li?iti na ovakvu tešku sprdnju…

Tell you what! During the Yugoslav wars artists often went across the border to perform and sing. Even though they were the aggressors they still went. Why? Because of audience and the civilians who had nothing to do with the war. Were these artists treated as enemies of the state when they came back? No?

Overall, this is a nice progress compared to previous years, even if there is much progress to be made still. I am bummed that the locals are still seeing Dora as a joke and are cynical about it, but I notice and appreciate that the audiences from other countries generally like this selection. It’s not one of the best selections of the year, but this time, it’s far from being one of the worst either. Songs mostly span from middle-of-the-road to good, with a few good ones each having things to polish to pull a wow effect. For me, the… Read more »

Yes, the lyrics are very open to interpretation, as they can be seen as spiritual or metaphoric. The thing is that *some* songs from Croatia (not necessarily ESC ones, but in general) sometimes have that ”Dear Father vibe”, so I always need to make a further analysis. In this case, I do like the meaning, as it’s dramatic, impactful, and open to individual interpretation. I think that the ”last resort in a hopeless situation” is the best and most likely version.

I really appreciated Dora this year. Comparing to the previous editions, the level of the songs was much better this time, there wasn’t anything embarassing for example. But I understand your concerns, Eurovision can be harsh on more quiet things. I’m hoping Monika Liu and Mia Dimsic benefit from the contrast to the craziness surrounding them (just like Hooverphonic benefited from all the party song on their semi), because musically they totally deserve to be in the final (and Monika deserves to fight at least for the top 10, but that’s a different discussion). About Mia Negovetic’s staging, I felt… Read more »

I think that the quiet entries can benefit if they hit the emotional or hypnotic note. I can definitely see Monika Liu doing it (my 5th so far, and my biggest grower). I hope Mia can too, but I think that the staging would have to highlight her intimate struggles, and not acrobatics. Yes, Mia’s staging felt ”inspirational”, while the song is quite heavy. Wrong choice. And I don’t reject Moli za nas as a song. I was only wary at the beginning, but Marko won me over. It’s a really lovely composition and performance. I had so many votes… Read more »

Exactly how I felt, this year there wasn’t a big gap of quality between the frontrunners and the rest. If the second to last was Roko and the third to last was Jessa, this is a good sign. Both could achieve getting to the middle of table in the previous years.

I think this Dora was the strongest ever! Don’t see why Croatians are that critical of it everywhere! Like since m dear Bosnia isn’t competing Dora has worked very well..
I also had Mia N as favourite although I think the starting order did her no favours..
Mia D was my second favourite, so pleased she won. I don¨t necessarily see Marko’s song as religious at all, more metaphorical plea to keep a relationship going
All my three favourites made top 3 but in wrong order:)

Out of all favorites, the only song I don’t like is Bernarda’s. It feels artificially ”tailor-made for Eurovision”… in 2010. It follows the ”Love Love Peace Peace” formula, but unironically. Plus, the chrous breakdowns feel out of place for me. But sure, if someone enjoys it, you are welcome to. I just hope that Bernarda returns with *the song* for her. I am sad for Mia N., because I feel like that’s exactly what she did, and the result was pretty much the same as previous times.

It was a subtle comment. The point I was trying to make is that the song is so safe yet devoid of emotional connection for me that I am finding it really hard to write anything about it. I don’t find it irritating (I could write a thesis on Norway), I find that I have very little thought while the song is going on and very little interest in exploring further, hence why I am finding it hard to comment on.

“Mia Dimsic beat out a star-studded lineup featuring the likes of ToMa, Mia Negoveti? and Bernarda.” – Well, actually Mia Dimsic is the only artist that is actually a star here. Mia Negovetic has a couple of her singles, but nothing huge. Toma and Bernarda are singers who have songs only on Dora, but this year’s winner Mia builds a serious career in Croatia with a lot of number one hits and four albums.

I guess the rythym is kind of similar, but that’s about it for me honestly. And the lyrics are actually the best thing about the song for me.

For me the song which seemed the most copied (this year) is Estonia’s song compared to Lovers on the Sun from David Guetta (the whistle especially)

And don’t even get me started about the copycats from Cyprus in the last 10 years..

My second favourite won so I am pleased! A really good song, far from being a guilty pleasure! Knowing Croatia’s history I feel it might struggle but It is a good choice. Good luck!

so many years of waiting to participate and finally she managed to win, with a beautiful piece, but the key is to fix the choreography and in Turin it will be fine

I wanted to hear oprosti in eurovision. the dress made her look like a nevena 2.0 and singing in english didn’t help at all. I still have hope in Sara…right now I feel so sad for not liking any entry in this season at all.
I mean I like ireland but not in the way I liked loco loco or sugar or last dance

I think she will not qualify in such a wild semi-final, but I’m glad that Croatia does not play safe and always sends X-Factor young guys which I initially thought they stick to.

If it’s just her on stage making strong contact with the camera this could be magical. There could be a dancer but he needs to be way less over the top, he was doing full handstands which was quite unnecessary. Still, nice choice from Croatia!

I think it’s a very good choice!
Cute song, beautiful voice, simple but effective!
I think Croatia can go to the big final with this song and artist !

My vote would go to Marko, but I’m pleased with Mia Dimsic getting the ticket to Turin. It’s a good song, one that I could definitely see myself listening to outside of the Eurovision context. Plus she has a goooorgeous voice.

I would just reconsider the staging. The dancer is visibly talented, but his presence was a distractive. If they’re invested on keep him around, maybe he could be more in the background, without stealing Mia’s spotlight before they have their encounter on the stage.

Aww thank you Croatia! I don’t have time to watch any of tonight’s shows but with this choice, Croatia nailed it for me. My new number 1 !!! It’s a charming song that makes you smile and think. Love it so much. Croatia better get the top 10 they deserve! At least!

I’m very pleased. I really like her.
Song is unprentencious and pleasant so I love it.
It was either her or Marko and Croatia clearly saw it. I really hope they will be back to the final

This is such a sweet song and semi final 1 is looking rather weak, this has a very good chance to qualify imo.
