The Croatian national final DORA took place in the lovely town of Opatija. Out of 14 entries, the juries from all different Croatian regions gave the highest number of points to Albina Grčić with “Tick-Tock”. The televoters had the same taste, hence Albina is going to represent Croatia in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.
The votes were counted 50/50 jury and televoting. Nina Kraljić came second with the extraordinary song "Rijeka". Tony Cetinski made the 7th place.
With this modern and funky song, Croatia will be back in the business and is a strong contender. The interval act was also a chance for Vesna Pisarovic, who made an 11th place in Tallinn, 2002 with “Everything I Want”, to present a medley including her Eurovision song .
This is the Croatian entry 2021:
