Following Claudia Beni's example a few days ago, another popular Croatian singer withdraws from Dora 2007. Veteran singer Goran Karan, who represented Croatia in the 2000 Eurovision Song Contest, announced his withdrawal today during the Turki show on Croatian radio.

As reported by our partner site Eurovision-Croatia, Goran said that the song Pismom te ljubi milion mandolina was submitted to Dora by its author Nenad Ninčević. Although Goran was thrilled to be accepted in Dora, he still wanted to make some changes to the song. Unfortunately, his business plans, already under way, did not allow for that, so he decided he had better withdraw.
His song will be sung by Giuliano, the 34 year old singer from Split, who has tried Dora four times more in the past, back in 1999, 2000, 2003 and 2005 without success.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
