Croatian broadcaster HRT has revealed the running order of the performances for Dora 2019, which will take place on Saturday 16 February.

Broadcaster HRT from Croatia has unveiled the running order of the participants of Dora 2019, Croatia’s Eurovision 2019 selection. During the show on Saturday 16 February 2019, 16 acts and artists will take to the stage, the winner representing Croatia in Tel Aviv.


The list of participants has seen some changes, as 4 Tenora and their song Brod bez imena unfortunately had to cancel their Dora 2019 participation due to other obligations. Luckily, there are always replacements included should any of the selected acts decide to withdraw, in this case Tonka (Don’t say you love me) and Kim Verson (Nisam to što žele). However, Tonka also decided not to participate, thus Kim Verson has been added to the Dora 2019 line-up.

Should any of the selected acts withdraw, the back-up artists are: Igor Delač (U ritmu ljubavi) and Patricia Gašparini (Pretend).
