Croatia: Let 3 lead singer falls sick!

Lead singer from Let 3 Zoran Prodanović Prlja has fallen sick recently.  The band qualified in the First Semi-Final of Eurovision 2023 this Tuesday.

The bassist of Let 3, Damir Martinović Mrle talked about this situation during an interview with HRT 1.  During the programme Kod nas doma, Martinović Mrle revealed the lead singer has fallen sick right after the First Semifinal:

“We have been in those spaces for days where we have rehearsals and performances that are constantly under air conditioning and ventilation and when a person stays there for 10, 12 hours, then it is a little problematic because it affects some people’s throats. And when it affects the singers’ throats, then it’s not good.  He caught that last night. You could feel it in that vocal, I don’t know how much the audience felt it, but this morning he woke up sick, his nose and throat are blocked, he can hardly speak, so now he is lying in bed and let’s hope that he can recover in two days.”


The Croatian Head of Delegation for Croatia, Mr. Tomislav Štengl has also commented on these recent news.  He is however more positive that Prlja will get a quick recovery:

“Everyone had a bit of a cold but Prlja might have got it a little worse. I think everything will be fine for Friday and Saturday.  The atmosphere is great. Everyone congratulates us, everyone is delighted.”

Last Semi-Final marked the first time Croatia qualifies for a Grand Final since 2017 and the first time Croatia qualifies with a song in Croatian since 2008.
