After a couple of years with internal selections of their Eurovision artist, Croatia will return to the national final format of Dora, which has been used in the past a lot.
The Director General of the Croatian national broadcaster, Kazimir Bačić has confirmed to Jutarnji that Dora will be once again used as the format to select their Eurovision 2019 entrant. Bačić explains the broadcaster will be investing more in entertainment shows during 2019. As well as Dora, the broadcaster will also be bringing back The Voice.
Dora had been used to select the Croatian act from the nation’s debut back in 1993 until 2011, where it was cancelled after Croatia’s poor results at the contest. Since then, all the Croatian entries had been selected through an internal selection.
