Shortly after the 16 finalists were announced, Goran Karan who was part of the national selection announced he is withdrawing from the competition. According to Goran, his decision was made in order to avoid any sort of controversy as the song had already been performed in concert. With Goran out, Elis Lovrić has been selected to replace him with his song "Jušto".

The winner of Dora 2020, Damir Kedžo, was selected by 50% televoting and 50% regional juries. If there was an equality score, televoting prevailed on national juries.

The 21st edition of Dora was hosted by Doris Pinčić Rogoznica and Zlata Mueck Sušec in the company of Mirko Fodor and Duško Ćurlić.

Guests of the show was Croatia's representative in Eurovision 2019 Roko Blažević, Filip Rudan, Bernarda Bobovečki and Albina Grčić.

Croatia has participated in Eurovision Song Contest 25 times since its debut in 1993. The first victory for Croatia in Eurovision is yet to come. The best result is two 4th places in 1996 (Maja Blagdan - "Sveta Ljubav") and 1999 (Doris Dragovic - "Marija Magdalena").

Since the introduction of Semi-finals in 2004 Croatia qualified for the Grand Final 7 out of 14 times. They withdrew from Eurovision 2014 and 2015 due to financial limitations and poor results in the contest.
