As we all know, Croatia will choose their Eurovision 2021 act via “Dora 2021”.
14 different artists will compete in the national final that will be held on the 13th of February 2021.
“Dora 2021” will have 4 women as hosts: Daniela Trbović, Barbara Kolar, Jelena Lešić, and Doris Pinčić.
According to Barbara Kolar, the selection this year will have a different voting method, comparing last year.
Last year, 16 artists competed in the national selection. They were ranked by jury voting and public voting. Each voting awarded one set of 1-16 points to all of the acts.
Under that method, we had a tie in the first place. Both Damir Kedžo and Mia Negovetić ended with 31 (=16+15 points). However, Damir was the winner of the public voting, while Mia won the jury voting.
So how will the new voting system for “Dora 2021” will work?
In fact, we will get something similar to the “Melodifestivalen” voting method.
Each juror will have to rank his/her top acts (Lets say top 10 in the scale of 1-8, 10 ,12 points). Therefore each juror will have 58 points to give. For example, if 10 juror will take part, the jury voting will be summed to 580 points. The public voting will be translated in percentages regrading the amount of points all the jury gave together (in our example). Therefore, if an artist will get 10% of the public voting, he/she will receive from the public 58 points.
The winner will be the artists with the highest combined results.
The method meant to decrease the probability of a tie between 2 or more artists.
The competing acts (by the running order) will be:
The amount of jurors in the jury panel as well as the scale of points will be raveled in a few days.
