We were at the press conference announcing the seven acts taking part in Eurovision Song CZ 2020, aiming to win the ticket to represent the Czech Republic at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Below, you can view our short clips with each of the participants and get to know them better before the competition officially opens next week with the entries themselves being released.
“That’s the short story behind our song that you know nothing about!”
The acts couldn’t say too much about their entries yet but they did tease the genres of their entries. A broad range of styles are covered in this year’s Czech selection from rap to pop, to reggaetón and ballads. The entries will be revealed on 20th January, although eagle-eyed fans have already spotted two being released early.
Since returning to the competition in 2015, the Czech Republic have qualified for the Grand Final three out of five times. Most notably in 2018, Mikolas Josef gave the Central European nation their best result to date achieving 6th place with “Lie to Me”, the country’s only Top 10 finish at the Eurovision Song Contest.
Which of the seven finalists in Eurovision Song CZ 2020 is your favourite from these clips? Which song are you most eagerly anticipating being released? Can one of these artists achieve another top 10 finish for the Czech Republic? Let us know in the comments below and on social media @ESCXTRA!
