The Czech Republic have an atrocious track record at Eurovision. In their four appearances, since their debut in 2007, they have failed to qualify for the final on every occasion. After a a five year gap between 2010 and 2014, Czech Republic returned to Eurovision in 2015 with duo Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta. Their song ‘Hope Never Dies’ finished 13th in Semi Final 2, failing to advance. Can they turn this misfortune around in 2016? Let’s see what they have in store.
Sticking with tradition, the Czech Republic will choose their 2016 entry by Internal selection. National broadcaster Česká televize (ČT) announced on 11th January that three songs had been shortlisted for their 2016 pick.
It was later revealed that the three artists behind the shortlisted songs were Thom Artway, the band Light & Love, and singer Dasha. We expect the broadcaster to make their choice in February, but in the meantime check out the three shortlisted acts below and let us know which one you’d like to see represent Czech Republic at Eurovision.
