Croatia odds Eurovision

Franka Batelic will represent Croatia at the 2018 Eurovision this year. “Crazy” – written by Franka herself with the music by Branimir Mihaljevic, will represent Croatia at the 63rd Eurovision song contest which will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on 8 May 2018.

“I have been watching Eurovision since I was a kid and it’s a dream come true to stand on that stage. I’m going to do my best to give it my all to this performance and make it the performance of a lifetime. And I’m sure you’re gonna feel that over your TV screen’s.”, she said looking forward to perform in Lisbon.

“Crazy” was officially unveiled on 6 March, with Franka’s music video for the Croatian entry. The pop mid-tempo song was written by Franka herself, as well as Branimir Mihaljević, and produced by the latter and Denis Mevlja. “I really love the song. It is mystical, different and powerful. A song with an attitude”, said Franka.

Franka is a singer-songwriter from Rijeka, Croatia who rose to fame after winning the first season of the Croatian TV talent show, ‘Showtime’. The TV talent show is Croatia’s equivalent to American Idol, so you can imagine how much of a big deal this is to Croatia and Eurovision! As a part of winning ‘Showtime’ in 2007, Franka signed to major Croatian record label, ‘Hit Records’ and started working on material to follow up from her winning single. In May 2008, the follow-up single, ‘Ruža u kamenu’ (‘Rose In Stone’) was released. She would then go on to perform the single at the 12th Croatian Radio Festival where she won a public award in the Pop/Punk category.

After much anticipation, Franka released her self-titled debut album in December 2009 and a sophomore album titled, ‘Featuring’ in March 2012. She then went on hiatus as she felt that she wasn’t where she wanted to be in terms of her music.

Franka is very excited about going to Lisbon: "When I was two years old, I was standing in front of our tv set, holding a remote control instead of a microphone, singing the lyrics of Tony Cetinski's, Nek' ti bude ljubav sva from the Eurovision 1994. That girl never stopped dreaming. And now the dream is coming true! I will present Croatian Radio and Television and the Republic of Croatia to Eurovision. I would like to thank the Croatian Radio Television for their invitation and expressed confidence. My team and I are aware of the responsibilities that this presentation brings, we are ready for the challenge and we will do our very best to represent Croatia in the best possible way in Portugal in May."   

"We believe that we shall continue Croatia's success during Eurovision. After Nina Kraljić who was voted through to the finals in Eurovision 2016, and Jacques Houdek's excellent Performance last year, we believe that Franko Batelić will achieve our main goal - placement in the final evening and represent us in the best possible way in Lisbon." Said: Tomislav Štengl - Head of Delegation of Croatia.
