The Czech Republic (Czechia) has participated in Eurovision 10 times since its debut in 2007. After receiving nul points in the 2009 semi-final and due to a lack of interest from the Czech public, broadcaster Česká televize (ČT) withdrew. ČT announced their return in 2015, with an internal selection being used to select their fourth Eurovision entry. In 2016, Gabriela Gunčíková became the first Czech entrant to reach the final, finishing 25th with the song “I Stand”. After failing to qualify in 2017, Mikolas Josef became the second entrant to reach the final and the first to reach the top ten, placing sixth in 2018 with “Lie to Me”. In 2019, Czech band Lake Malawi finished eleventh, achieving the country’s second best result in the contest. The third best result was achieved in 2022 by the band We Are Domi, finishing 22nd.

Mikolas Josef 2018 Czech Republic

Josef was approached to represent the Czech Republic in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 with the song “My Turn”, but rejected the offer as he did not believe the song suited him. In November 2017, Josef released the single “Lie to Me”, and later confirmed that the song would be competing in the Czech national final for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon.

“Lie to Me” later won the national selection, and represented the Czech Republic in the 2018 contest. It finished in sixth place with 66 points from the juries and 215 points from the audience, giving the Czech Republic its best result so far in the competition. By May 2020, “Lie to Me” reached 30 million streams on Spotify, becoming the most-streamed Czech song on the platform.
