Czechia | Final Juror Results announced ahead of Monday's Reveal
After the success last year that the Czech Republic and broadcaster ČT had with their revamped national selection 'Eurovision Song CZ' with Mikolas Josef, it was no surprise that they decided to return to this selection format. On Monday, the broadcaster began posting the jury results in a different format to last years. Find out below:
The public vote on the eight songs which each had a music video posted earlier this year ended on Monday 21st January and then ahead of the full results (which is comprised 50/50 between jury and televote scores) two international jurors a night will have their twelve points announced. These reveals will take place daily at 18.00 and 20.00 CET until Sunday. On Monday 28th January, the full results of all jurors and televoting will be posted and the winner determined.
The final two jurors were JOWST who represented Norway in Eurovision 2017, placing 12th in the final with 'Grab The Moment' and Ryan O'Shaughnessy who represented Ireland last year at the 2018 Eurovision Song Cotnest with 'Together' getting Ireland back to the final for the first time since 2013. He ultimately placed 16th in the final with 136 points. They both know what it takes to perform on the Eurovision stage - will their points lead to a successful performance in Tel Aviv for the Czech Republic?
Ninth to vote - JOWST of Norway:
And finally - Ryan O'Shaughnessy of Ireland:
The last two results mean that Barbora Mochowa and 'True Colours' who have been leading the vote all week have been overtaken by band Lake Malawi with their song 'Friend of a Friend'. Both JOWST and Ryan awarded their 12 points to Lake Malawi meaning he now has a twelve point lead on Barbora. Tomorrow marks the final results where the broadcaster will publish not only the full jury votes but also the result of the televote and ultimately the announcement of the winner! Could tomorrow's results drastically change anything or will we be seeing Lake Malawi in Tel Aviv?
The results as they currently look are:
1. Lake Malawi - "Friend of a Friend" - 60 points
2. Barbora Mochowa - "True Colours" - 48 points
3. Andrea Holá - "Give Me A Hint" - 12 points
