A re-write on the cards for “Lie to Me”

Of course, as we previously discussed, “Lie to Me” contains three uses of expletive language. This breaks the EBU rules in regards to songs which can be performed at Eurovision.

Our colleagues at Eurovoix revealed this week that Mikolas will be travelling to Austria to work on the clean version of his song for Eurovision.

Are you a fan of the Czech entry? How did your favourite do in the national selection?  What are you hoping from Mikolas for the clean version of “Lie to Me”? Let us know in the comments below and on social media @ESCXTRA.
