Czech Republic will participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The Czech broadcaster Česká televize (ČT) organised a national final in order to select the Czech entry for the 2019 contest in Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Background

Prior to the 2019 Contest, Czech Republic had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest seven times since its first entry in 2007.[1] The nation competed in the contest on three consecutive occasions between 2007 and 2009 without qualifying to the final: in 2007 Kabát performing "Malá dáma" placed 28th (last) in the semi-final achieving only one point, in 2008 Tereza Kerndlová performing "Have Some Fun" placed 18th (second to last) in her semi-final scoring nine points, in 2009 Gipsy.cz performing the song "Aven Romale" placed 18th (last) in their semi-final failing to score any points. The Czech broadcaster withdrew from the contest between 2010 and 2014 citing reasons such as low viewing figures and poor results for their absence.[2] In 2015, Czech Republic returned to the contest and once again failed to qualify to the final with the song "Hope Never Dies" performed by Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta, placing 13th in their semi-final with 33 points. In 2016, Czech Republic was represented by Gabriela Gunčíková and the song "I Stand". The country qualified for the final and placed 25th out of 26 entries. This marked the first qualification to the final for the Czech Republic since they debuted in the contest in 2007. In 2018, Czech Republic was represented by Mikolas Josef with the song "Lie to Me". The song finished in sixth place with 281 points, achieving their highest finish in the contest and their first appearance in the top ten.

Before Eurovision

Eurovision Song CZ

Eurovision Song CZ was the national selection process organised by Česká televize to select Czech Republic's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The winner was revealed in January 2019.

Format

The winner was determined, from among eight competing entries, by the combination of votes from a public vote and a ten-member international jury panel. For the public vote, users were able to vote for the winner from 7 January 2019 to 21 January 2019 via the official Eurovision Song Contest app. For first time, both international and Czech users were able to vote. International votes have the same weight like international juror. The international jury panel consisted of ten former Eurovision entrants:

Competing entries

Česká televize received three hundred song submissions for the Eurovision Song Contest, of which 60 were by Czech musicians. The eight selected finalists were announced on 7 January 2019 and the entries were made available to the public.[3]

At Eurovision

The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will take place at Expo Tel Aviv in Tel Aviv, Israel and will consist of two semi-finals on 14 and 16 May and the final on 18 May 2019. According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big 5" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final.

Semi-final

Czech Republic will perform in the first half of the first semi-final.

Voting

Voting during the three shows involved each country awarding two sets of points from 1-8, 10 and 12: one from their professional jury and the other from televoting. Each nation's jury consisted of five music industry professionals who are citizens of the country they represent, with their names published before the contest to ensure transparency. This jury judged each entry based on: vocal capacity; the stage performance; the song's composition and originality; and the overall impression by the act. In addition, no member of a national jury was permitted to be related in any way to any of the competing acts in such a way that they cannot vote impartially and independently. The individual rankings of each jury member as well as the nation's televoting results will be released shortly after the grand final.
