Dora 2022 airs tonight, so we’ll soon find out who will succeed Albina and represent Croatia in the Eurovision Song Contest to take place this May in Turin.
Earlier this week, we asked you to name your favorite to win the national selection. After counting 3,022 votes, we now have the results!
Your Favorite to win Dora 2022: Marko Bošnjak with “Moli za nas”
Our readers’ big favourite is Marko Bošnjak with the Balkan-tinged ballad “Moli za nas”. He won convincingly with 883 votes (29.22% of the total), well ahead of the pack. He rose to fame as the winner of the second season of Pinkove Zvezdice when he was nine years of age. Now, at 18, he’s knocking on the door to Eurovision.
In second place we have someone who isn’t a stranger to Dora, having placed second and third to date. It’s Mia Negovetić with “Forgive me (Oprosti)”. She garnered 565 votes (18.70% of the total). The song was composed by Laurell Barker and Andreas “Stone” Johansson.
Third place goes to ToMa with “In the Darkness” with 349 votes (11.55% of the total). He participated in last year’s Dora as well, placing sixth with the song “Ocean of Love”, which later became his first song to get on the HR Top 40 chart.
And rounding up the top 5, we have Mia Dimšić with “Guilty Pleasure” (325 votes) and Bernarda with “Here for Love” (304 votes). You’ll remember that Bernarda placed in the Top 5 in the OGAE Second Chance contest in 2021.

Who did you vote for? Which act should win Dora 2022 and represent Croatia at Eurovision in Turin this May? Let us know in the comments below!
Mia Negovetic is the best choice at this time. Marko is a wonderful talent that deserves a better song, hopefully next year.
He said in an interview that it was a conscious decision to sing in Croatian because for so much people it sounds very beautiful. Good guy, thank you !
He legit gave me Kristian Kostov vibes the first time I heard this song. Moli Za Nas could easily qualify through any semi final and do some damage in the final. However, if there’s one thing I have learned from three years of tuning into Dora, it’s that Croatians are very swayed by running order. You cannot convince me that Divlji Vetre would’ve won Dora in 2020 if he performed in the first half. Nina was a serious contender last year, but they put her on first.

lol, you guessed correct. She won!
I don’t know if I trust either the juries or the televoters to appreciate Marko in May, but still, the best song should win tonight.
i’m really hoping croatia goes for marko tonight. i like mia negovetic just fine but her entry this year is probably my least favorite she’s competed with
Croatia – Marko Bosnjak – Moli za nas – Cartoon Video – Eurovision 2022
It’d be a great choice.
He´s my favourite. I´d prefer to send a song in beautiful croatian language.
Voice like velvet, Sanremo-worthy lyrics, this is a Croatian powerhouse that will breeze through the finale.
Rooting for Mia D
he’s hot so even if he wins against the superior mia n. i won’t be mad :))
