Jacques Houdek will represent Croatia at the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with the song My Friend.The song has been released about a week ago, but has been published on Eurovision Song Contest official Youtube channel just today.
''My friend'' is quite unusual, combining English and Italian as well as different singing styles. Its sounds like a duo but it isn't. That's why it has different reactions to it – some bow to the original concept, while the others are just not getting it.
The 2017 Eurovision Song Contest will be held at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv, Ukraine. The Semi-Finals will take place on Tuesday 9th May and Thursday 11th May, and the Grand Final will be held on Saturday 13th May.
The Eurovision Song Contest is one of the longest running television shows in the world. It was on the 24th of May, 1956, that Europe saw the first ever Eurovision Song Contest. After all those years, the contest is one of the most typical European traditions. Croatia didn't have much success on the Eurovision for a long time, but we'll see what happens this year.
