Croatia’s Eurovision national final will take place on February 19th. The show will be hosted by Duško Ćurlić, Elizabeta Brodić and Franka Batelić. Sadly due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, there will be no audience for Dora 2022.

Croatia in Eurovision
Croatia has been a part of the Eurovision family since 1961, as part of Yugoslavia. Ten Croatian artists went on to represent Yugoslavia in the Contest – the most famous of which being Riva, who gave Yugoslavia its only win in 1989. The 1990 Contest was held in Zagreb as a tribute to their Croatian heritage.
Croatia debuted in the Contest as an independent nation in 1993 with the band Put and their song “Don’t Ever Cry”. Since then, Croatia has gone on to score as high as 4th place in 1996 and 1999. Last year, Albina won Dora 2021 to represent Croatia at the Contest in Rotterdam with her song “Tick-Tock”. However, despite finishing 10th in both the jury and the televote, Albina failed to qualify for the final, finishing with a total of 110 points.
