Croatia‘s participation in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest in May 2020 in the Netherlands is unclear.
Croatian public broadcaster HRT, speaking on the ESCXTRA website, said they still can not confirm their presence in the next contest. More information was not provided, which suggests the country’s withdrawal from the upcoming event, as a possible scenario, considering the bad results of the last two years.
However, as announced earlier, the Croatian capital, Zagreb will host the Eurovision Song Contest for young musicians in 2020, which may work for or against the above decision.
If Croatia withdraws, it will follow the example of Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Slovakia, who have been reluctant to return to Eurovision 2020.
This year, Roko represented by Croatia, with “The Dream“, where he finished in 14th place with 64 points in the Second Semi-final without being able to qualify for the Final.
