The national broadcaster confirms a national selections for 2021

After the cancellation of the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, Damir Kedžo expressed interest in participating in Rotterdam for the 2021 edition. Damir Kedžo was due to be in Rotterdam with the song "‎Divlji vjetre".

The Head of Delegation, Uršula Tolj, confirms that the next representative on the Eurovision stage will be selected through their national selection, Dora.

– Together, we got the most out of this year without the standard Eurovision Song Contest. We present ourselves with dignity on social media as well as in the special show Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light. Damir proved to be a great professional and despite the situation, he did a great job of all the promotion - and the song, we can conclude without hesitation, achieved great success both in Croatia and abroad.

Having said this, Damir must compete once again in Dora if he would like to represent Croatia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 which is due to be held in Rotterdam. He previously stated that he will participate if he had the right song.

No information on the format of the competition has yet been given.
