Our countdown to Eurovision 2017 today looks at the entry for Croatia.
Really, the only way is up for the Croatians in 2017, after they returned to the competition last year, only to finish in 23rd place.
They’ve never made it past No.4 in the final… something they’ll no doubt be keen to rectify.
35 year old performer Jacques Houdek will take to the stage in the second semi final with the hopes of his country resting on his shoulders.
His song – ‘My Friend’ – is performed partly in English (with a traditional pop vocal) and partly in Italian (in an operatic baritone). Confused yet?
It’s not a bad thing… it’ll certainly help the song stand out amongst the crowd (and win a few votes from fans from Italy, obviously), but the lyrics are a little obvious, perhaps a little contrived.
