Croatia selected its entry for the Eurovision Song Contest through the Dora contest, which was held on 5 and 6 March 2010, organised by the Croatian national broadcaster Hrvatska radiotelevizija (HRT). The winner of Dora was the girl group Feminnem with "Lako je sve". Feminnem had previously represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 with the song "Call Me", and placed 14th in the final.

Dora 2010[edit]

HRT organised the Dora contest to select the Croatian entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 2010, which will be held in Oslo, Norway from 25 to 29 May 2010. The 18th edition of Dora was held in the Crystal Hall of the Kvarner Hotel in Opatija on 5 and 6 March, where a total of 24 songs competed in the televised semi-final and final.[1] Before this two preview shows of the semi-final songs, Ususret dori were broadcast on 11 and 12 February.[2]

16 songs competed in the semi-final of the contest on 5 March - these songs came from a public call for submissions from songwriters. A public televote selected eight of these songs to progress to the final on 6 March, where they were joined by eight songs entered by internally selected composers by HRT.[1][3] Songs could been submitted to HRT for the semi-final until 15 December.[2][4]

On 29 December HRT published 15 of the 16 semi-final participants, selected by HRT from 200 submitted entries.[5][6] On 8 January 2010 HRT announced the names of the 8 prequalified finalists, as well as the final semi-finalist.[7]

Semi-final[edit]

The semi-final of Dora 2010 was held on 5 March. From the 16 competing acts a public televote selected eight to progress to the final the following night, on 6 March. Doris Teur was the semi-final winner.[8][9]

Before Eurovision[edit]

On 20 March, HRT1 aired the official music video of "Lako je sve" for the first time, with other Croatian TV channels allowed to broadcast the video the next day. The video was directed by Croatian director Gonzo, and the outfits worn by Feminnem were designed by Gordana Zucić.[13]

In April 2010 Feminnem released Russian, Italian and English language versions of "Lako je sve" - "Легко всë - Ljehko vsjo" (Everything is easy), "Semplice" (Simple) and "Easy to See".[14]
