Czech Republic | 8 National Selection Songs Revealed
This morning Czech broadcaster ČT have revealed the eight artists and their songs that will be competing to represent the Czech Republic at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel this May. Find out who is competing, give a listen to their songs and also find out the selection process below.
After last years success of this selection format with Mikolas Josef and his track 'Lie To Me' placing 6th with 281 points - securing the countries best ever performance at Eurovision by miles - broadcaster ČT have decided to use the same format for deciding their Eurovision 2019 entry.
The eight competing entries are:
Andrea Holá - "Give Me A Hint"
Jakub Ondra - "Space Sushi"
Barbora Mochowa - "True Colors"
Jara Vymer - "On My Knees"
Tomáš Boček - "Don´t Know Why"
Lake Malawi - "Friend of a Friend"
Pam Rabbit - "Easy To Believe"
Hana Barbara - "Poslední slova tobě"
Over 300 songs were submitted to the broadcaster following the success of Mikolas - a huge increase on last years submissions.
The format will remain the same as last year - with the outcome being decided by both a public online vote (based off the music videos) and a professional jury - typically made up of Eurovision stars and singers. Online voting opened today with the release of the songs and will close on January 21st - with the voting done via the official Eurovision app.
