Beta Sudar: “Expect the unexpected hahaahhaha … it definitely won’t be boring”

As Dora approaches, we contacted the participating artists a bit before they perform their songs on stage for a short Q&A for us to get to know them better. This time we have the opportunity to speak to the 2019’s Dora participant, Beta Sudar.

F: The Eurovision stage has seen many young artists performing on it throughout the years with each of them having some kind of a background in music. What is yours?

B: Since my childhood, I won many local singing competitions but the big opportunity came along when I was still in high school and applied for a TV show Supertalent. After the show, I got contacted by a famous Croatian author and producer Predrag Martinjak who offered me a collaboration which resulted in releasing six hit singles.

F: Tell us one thing most people don’t know about you.

B: I played a violin in a music school and I also played women football in my hometown Valpovo.

F: Who is your biggest source of inspiration in life?

B: My parents who I admire for giving me and my 3 siblings (two sisters and a brother) all the support in the world. They are my big inspiration.

F: Did you watch the Eurovision Song Contest before? If yes, do you have a favourite moment?

B: Eurovision had so many remarkable moments that became a part of global entertainment history, but if I have to outline just one, then it would be Loreen’s performance of Euphoria. What a show that was!

F: You’ve competed in Dora back in 2019 with “Don’t Give Up” and finished in the top 10. What pushed you to compete once again?

B: Primary the song which is absolutely made for a big stage promotion. Dora 2019 was a unique experience for me because you don’t too often get a chance to perform in front of so grand audience with such a great production. The whole event made me feel great and I want to experience it again.

F: What is your best memory from Dora 2019?

B: I was really satisfied with my Dora 2019 performance so it brings back a lot of great memories. Prior to Dora, we’ve made some serious preparations which included many wonderful people – vocal coaches, dancers, choreographs and designers who were willing to share their talent with me.

F: Is there a different feeling between your first participation in Dora and now?

B: The excitement is the same, we’ve started to sing and dance rehearsals, but I’m sad that it won’t be held in front of a live audience. The crowd really contributes to maximizing level of good energy.

F: What is the story behind your song?

B: Ma zamisli could be translated as Just imagine and has a catchy lyrics describing an awkward situation where a guy is totally uninterested in a girl who puts all her effort in making him want her. The song is upbeat, so I’m preparing an interesting performance.

F: What shall we expect from your performance?

B: Expect the unexpected hahaahhaha…it definitely won’t be boring.

F: You recently released a new song – “Dovidjenja tugo”, which was also written by Predrag Martinjak. Is that the style we can expect from your Dora entry as well?

B: I’ve been working with Peggy who is among top 10 authors and producers in Croatia since my first single “U mislima” and till now we’ve released 6 singles that all reached Croatian airplay charts. What they all have in common are catchy rhymes, upbeat music, modern production and that special energy that suits my vocal. We’re planning a debut album release soon and I’m super excited about that.

F: What do you do in order to be the best version of yourself on stage?

B: I will do my best to make a great show on stage and to do that, a lot of preparation is required – vocal trainings and dance lessons, but also regular workout and a healthy diet that keeps me fit and strong.

F: Thank you very much Beta! Good luck in the competition!

    I am probably the only one, but I am actually very curious about Pjerino Ružević’s Soldier. It is sad that no back up artist song snippets were revealed.
