Croatia: Song submission window opened – changes in the national final!

Croatian national broadcaster HRT confirmed Croatia’s participation in Eurovision 2023 and simultaneously it is in search of Croatia’s next representative that is going to travel to the United Kingdom.

It will choose its representative again through Dora 2023, while the song submission window opened for those interested, until November 20th.

Compared to past editions, the national final is going to face several changes. Firstly, 14 to 28 songs will be selected, along with four backups, while it’s very possible for a Semi-final to happen. The decision for the number of the semi-finals and the night of the final will be taken by HRT until January 10th.

Six people at max are going to be allowed on stage during the act (recorded backing vocals are allowed) and the staging plans should be submitted until December 10th.

Also, until December 20th, the performer should submit the official music video or a lyric video of their song. The Dora performance will be used as the official video at the Eurovision channel. However, if the performer submits the official music video on time, HRT will report this at EBU as the official video.

Dora 2023 is expected to happen in February, as usual.

This year Croatia was represented by Mia Dimšić and the song “Guilty Pleasure” and couldn’t progress to the Eurovision 2022 final, finishing at the 11th place of its Semi-Final for the second year in a row.

Will Croatia be able to break the 11th place curse this time? Stay tuned to Eurovisionfun to be updated for all the news!
