The Czech artists competing to represent their nation in Lisbon have been officially confirmed
- Debbi – High on Love
- Doctor Victor – Stand Up
- Eddie Stoilow – We Rule This World
- Eva Burešová – Fly
- Mikolas Josef – Lie To Me
- Pavel Callta – Never Forget
I had Mikolas Josef on my list to compete last year, so I was particularly disappointed to see Martina Barta emerge with her beige coloured dirge. Lie to Me is certainly the most compelling of the songs presented so far, but I think it is rather too esoteric for Eurovision. Debbi and Eva offer the next best options, but nether would trouble the top half of a Eurovision semi-final.
It looks like the winner will be decided by online voting, which is risky, but it should be OK as long as the EBU have nothing to do with it! 😝😂
Update: the EBU does have something to do with the vote, therefore, anything could happen.
