Czech Republic in the Eurovision Song Contest
After debuting in the contest in 2007, the country has qualified twice in the final. Czech Republic withdrew from the contest in 2010 and returned in 2015.
They qualified to the final for the first time in 2016, when Gabriela Gunčíková represented the country with “I Stand”. Their best result ever came last year in Lisbon. Mikolas Josef represented Czech Republic with “Lie to Me” and finished sixth in the final.
