Goran Karan withdraws from Dora 2020!

HRT, Croatia’s national broadcaster, announced the names of the 16 participants of Dora 2020 – their national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. Only a couple of hours later, there is a change in the line-up, as Goran Karan (who already represented Croatia in Eurovision 2000) decided to withdraw from the competition.

Goran Karan made the following statement:

The song “My Legacy Is Love” in the form it was sent to Dora differs significantly from the lyrics, music, arrangement and length from what I played in my concert in Visoko in Bosnia & Herzegovina. So in order to eliminate all possible misinterpretations, I decided to withdraw the song “My Legacy Is Love” from Dora. This way I want to close the space for any controversy and side effects, because, as the lyrics of that song say – my legacy is – love.

As Goran Karan withdrew, one space has opened for another entry, and that means that the first back-up entry has now made it to Dora, and it’s Elis Lovrić with the song “Jušto”. The full line-up is now as follows:

  1. Marin Jurić Čivro – Naivno
  2. Edi Abazi – Coming home
  3. Mia Negovetić – When it Comes to You
  4. Colonia – Zidina
  5. Zdenka Kovačićek – Love, Love, Love
  6. Lorenzo feat Dino Purić & Reper iz sobe – Vrati se iz Irske
  7. Jure Brkljača – Hajde nazovi me!
  8. Damir Kedžo – Divlji vjetre
  9. Lorena Bućan – Drowning
  10. Alen Vitasović & B. Matija Čerina – Da se ne zatare
  11. Aklea Neon – Zovi ju mama
  12. Indira – You Will Never Break My Heart
  13. Nikola Marjanović – Let’s forgive
  14. Đana – One
  15. Bojan Jambrošić – Više od riječi
  16. Elis Lovrić – Jušto

Dora will take place on the 29th of February in Opatija, and the winner will once again be selected by a mix of jury votes and televoting.
