HRT, the National Broadcaster of Croatia confirmed today the rumors that Jacques Houdek  will be Croatia’s chosen!

Jacques Houdek is a 35-years-old pop-soul singer and composer and he was born in 1981 in Zagreb, Croatia. He is married and he has 2 children.

Jacques has already tried 6 times to represent his country in ESC. In 2002 with his song Carolija (13th place), in 2003 with Na krilima ljubavi (5th place), in 2004 he sang Nema razloga (4th place), in 2005 he ended again in the 4th place with Nepobjediva. His worst place in the National finals of Croatia was in 2006 when he ended in the 15th place. His last attempt to represent his country was in 2011 when he managed to reach the Final show of Dora 2011 – Let’s go to Eurovision! but he lost to Daria Kinzer.

Since 2012, Jacques did not try to represent Croatia again. He focused on his carrier and in 2015 as a judge of the Croatian version of The Voice he won as a coach of Nina Kraljic (Croatia 2016).

The song that Jacques will perform in Kiev will probably be composed by him. We are expecting his song to be released in February.
