Mikolas Josef was selected as the Czech representative back in January and since then, his entry ‘Lie To Me’ has been creeping up massively in people’s charts as well as in the bookmakers list of potential winners. The 22 year old has now teased on social media that we can expect a new version of the song very soon!
A fellow 2018 artist joins fans in excitement
Yesterday evening, Mikolas took to Twitter to reveal that he had arrived back from Vienna with a completed new version of his Eurovision entry ‘Lie To Me’. A new version of the track had been expected, with the original version containing lyrics which do not comply with EBU rules due to some minor explicit language being used.
Fans responded to the tweet in anticipation for the new mix, with one in particular coming from this year’s Belarussian representative, ALEKSEEV who reacted with excitement at the news of a new version.
Damn🤩I wanna to listen!🕺🕺🕺

Meanwhile, other twitter users are equally as excited:
New version?? This is news to me. I’m much looking forward to this. 😃

The pair will no doubt be seeing a lot of each other at the contest as they have both been drawn to perform in the first half of the first semi final which takes place on Tuesday 8th May.
