Showtime is a Croatian show similar to Pop Idol. The show started in the fall of summer 2007 when auditions were held in Osijek, Rijeka, Split and Zagreb. Out of more than 1,000 auditioners, 200 made it through to the next round, in which the judges picked the Top 22. All of the semi-finalists were called to Zagreb for the Piano Round, in which the judges decided on the Top 16 - 8 male and 8 female contestants. The format in the finals was as following: All of the contestants would perform, the judges would give their marks (1-5, 5 being the best) to each contestant and then the judges' marks would combine with public vote giving two contestants (always 1 male and 1 female) who pulled in the lowest overall score and who had to leave the competition. This format was used all the way to Top 6, when only contestant left the show. The following week, Top 5, one more contestant left the show, leaving 4 finalists who competed in the 4-way Finale. 16-year-old Franka Batelić won the competition.
