Mikolas Josef – Lie To Me

Mikolas Josef – Lie To Me

Mikolas Josef won both with the international jury, consisting of the stars of the previous years of the ESC, and with the audience. He received 68 out of 80 possible points from the jury and gained almost half of the 16,000 individual votes cast. Behind the final mix of „Lie to me“ stands Nikodem Milewski, an Austrian mixing and mastering engineer of world importance, who will also oversee the sound engineering in Lisbon.

The first person to advance to the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest for the Czech Republic was Gabriela Gunčíková in 2016 with the song „I Stand“. Last year, singer Martina Bárta, who won the most points from Portugal, whose capital is Lisbon, which happens to be the scene of the further contest, represented us. This year, after ten years, also the audience itself decided on the further finalist in the national round, in which almost forty songs were entered and of which almost forty were exclusively from Czech authors. The pop music discovery Mikolas Josef won with a landslide among the six performers. During the preparations for the semifinals, he spent two months touring the states of the competition and with his original song „Lie to me“, he created a strong fan base. Its YouTube video has over 2 million views so far, as well as thousands of positive reviews from around the world.

The Czech Republic has drawn the first semifinals for this year‘s Eurovision Song Contest. Mikolas Josef will perform fifth on 8 May. Viewers will be able to see it live on ČT2 screens. The second semifinal, again live, will be on 10 May. The winner will be decided during the finals on 12 May, which Czech TV will broadcast on ČT1. All broadcasts start at 21:00.
