Croatia was represented by Ivan Mikulić and the song "You Are The Only One". The Croatian Final "Dora" was held in the Crystal Ballroom of the Hotel Kvarner in Opatija on March 14, hosted by Dusko Curlic, Tihana Zrnic and Barbara Radulović. Before the final, two semi-finals were held in which the top 6 songs qualified. The winner was chosen by regional televoting and SMS voting. 'Daješ mi krila' was chosen by the Croatian jury and public with 71 points. Ivan Mikulić previously came 11th in the 1995 Croatian Final, 8th in 1996, 13th in 1997, 11th in 1998 and 9th in 2002.
At Eurovision, Ivan sang his song in English and delivered a subtle and simple performance. The stage went completely dark with his back-up singers lined up behind him. Ivan just missed out on qualifying Croatia into the final for 2005 scoring the same number of points as Malta, 50, but ended up coming in 13th place because of tie breaking rules.
