Who will follow in the footsteps of Mikolas Josef and represent the Czech Republic at Eurovision 2019? Well we will get one step closer to finding this out on 7 January when Czech broadcaster CT are poised to reveal the artists and songs that will compete in their selection show.
The Czech selection show for 2019 named Escz will be similar to the selection show for 2018. It will feature a number of youthful acts who will compete in an online and app vote to be selected to represent Czech Republic in Tel Aviv in May.
The winner of the Contest will be announced at the end of January. Last year six acts competed in the selection show. Mikolas Josef won with an overwhelming majority of Jury and Public votes. He went on to finish sixth at Eurovision 2018 with song ‘Lie to Me’. This is the nation’s best ever Eurovision result to date.
