We are now just days away from the beginning of the Czech national final for next year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Indeed, on Monday, December 6th, the seven artists and songs that will be competing for the Czech ticket to Turin will be revealed. In the last few days, ESCZ has been releasing a series of teasers via their social media channels and the latest of them rules out a certain heavily-rumoured artists making a return to ESCZ.
In the last couple of months, rumours had been rife that Mikolas Josef had submitted an entry to ESCZ and would likely be amongst the line-up for the final which will feature live-on-tape performances rather than music/lyric videos for the first time. Nevertheless, ESCZ has confirmed that the seven finalists have a combined Instagram follower total of 177,900. Mikolas himself has 223,000 which rules the 2018 Czech Republic representative out of a 2022 return.
All the hints so far
You can also take a look at our round-up of the previous hints from ESCZ by checking out our previous article right here.
The winner of ESCZ will be announced on December 16th through a voting combination of 50% international jury, 25% international fans and 25% Czech fans. This new voting system gives international fans more power than ever before and the Czech Republic will be hoping it will return them to the Eurovision final next May for the first time since Lake Malawi’s “Friend of a Friend” in 2019.
