Damir Kedžo has teased on his Instagram that he may participate in Dora, Croatia’s Eurovision selection show.
The singer was set to represent Croatia at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Rotterdam, which had been cancelled due to COVID-19. However, Croatian broadcaster HRT has stated that they plan to hold Dora in February 2021 and that the winner of the contest will represent Croatia in Rotterdam next year.
Damir reposted a photo onto his Instagram story from a music producer who he will likely be working with to produce a new entry for the contest.
If Damir wins Dora 2021, he will once again represent Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest. His song for this year’s contest “Divlji vjetre” was proven popular in Dora, having won the televote and finished in second with the juries.

Croatia debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993, they were one of three countries to debut in the contest that year. Croatia’s best result came in 1999 when Doris Dragovic finished 4th in Jerusalem. She performed the song “Marija Magdalena” which scored a total of 118 points, this included 12 points from Slovenia and Spain. Croatia returned to the contest in 2016 having withdrawn after the 2013 contest due to a string of poor results and financial difficulties.
