The number of participants in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 is slowly rising. However, it is especially nice to have Croatia added to the list. In an e-mail sent to our editors’ board, the Croatian broadcaster (HRT) confirmed that Croatia will be present at the 64th edition in Tel Aviv.
– As the new project leader and head of the Croatian delegation at ESC 2019, I can confirm that HRT will participate at the next edition – reads the e-mail signed by Željen Klašterka, who composed the music for Nek ti bude ljubav sva, with which Tony Cetinski represented Croatia at the ESC 1994.
Details on how Croatia will choose its entrant are still unknown.
