Dorotea "Doris" Dragović (born as Dorotea Budimir on 16th of April, 1961 in Split, SR Croatia, then Yugoslavia) is a Croatian pop singer. She is a known supporter of Torcida, fans of Hajduk Split football club.

She became popular in the 1980s when she was still a member of the Croatian group More. In 1986 she started to sing solo, accumulating such hits as "Sedam mora sedam gora", "Željo moja" and "Selim ti ja". Her later hits include "Malo mi za sriću triba" and "To".

In 1999, her performance of the dramatic song "Marija Magdalena" beat 23 other entries to win Croatia's annual epic-length Dora contest, which entitled her to represent the country in the Eurovision Song Contest, organized that year in Jerusalem. The song also was a radio hit on Greek radio station FLY FM 89,7 and reached number 1 on its airplay.

Dragović placed a respectable fourth in the 1999 Eurovision Song Contest, despite having been drawn early in the singing order, sometimes cited as a disadvantage. Her act also included the removal of some of her clothing - seen jocularly as a staple of Eurovision performances - and was well-received in the first contest in which most countries allocated their points after a public telephone vote. This remains one of Croatia's best results at the contest.

Dragović had earlier participated at Eurovision. She represented Yugoslavia in 1986 with the song "Željo moja", placing 11th. She was also well known for singing "Hej Jugoslaveni".
