CT, the Czech national broadcaster has exclusively revealed to Esctoday.com today that the Czech Republic won’t participate in the forthcoming  2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. The broadcaster does not rule out that the idea that they might return to the competition in 2014.

CT Ceska Televize has informed Esctoday.com that they won’t return to the Eurovision Song Contest next year, The Czech Republic has been absent from the event since 2010. The landlocked central European country debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with Kabat’s Mala Dama and has competed in the event 3 times. 2009 marked the last participation of the Czech Republic with Gypsy.cz with Aven Romale. The country never qualified for the Eurovision Song Contest final. Hence due to low viewing rates and poor results the broadcaster decided to withdraw from the contest in 2010 and has not returned since. Will we see the  Czech Republic back in the contest in 2014?

Stay tuned to Esctoday.com for the latest news on the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest.
