20. Croatia – Severina: “Moja Štikla”

Eurovision, from what I understand, was originally started to promote the traditional music in each participating country.† Aside from some local flourishes in some of the numbers, the contest is nowhere near that anymore. Croatia, however, is going for the traditional gusto. The main gimmick: the female singer’s long dress detaches to become a short dress so she can line dance with the back-up performers. This was lots of fun.

This is not even remotely true.
