Immediately after his bringing to the hospital, where he got by an ambulance, Mikolas Josef had the following words to say:

The first thing that came to my mind was that Eurovision ended for me and that I will terribly disappoint the fans who have sent me here. I will fight with all my strength, even if I only stand on the stage. I will do everything to keep going. Keep your thumbs up!
