HRT, the Croatian broadcaster have announced that the country's final to select the next representative for the Eurovision Song Contest will be held on 23rd February 2008 in Opatija just like last year.

Although HRT usually announces the semi finals' dates as well, no such announcement was made this year. Instead, a series of six special shows preceding the final have been scheduled for January and February. Partner site reports that the Ususret Dori shows (Towards Dora) will take place on 12, 19, 26 January and 2, 9 and 16 February.

That could possibly mean that these shows will serve as more than preview shows for the presentation of the songs. Croatian HoD Aleksandar Konstadivov told that HRT are still in discussions and a final decision is yet to be made.

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 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.
