Czech Republic in Eurovision
The Czech Republic debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 with Kabat and is yet to win the competition. The country achieved its best result in the contest in 2018 when Mikolas Josef placed 6th in Lisbon with his song Lie to me.
The Czechs have partaken in Europe’s favorite television show 9 times, out of which they have only qualified to the Grand Final twice, namely in 2016 and 2018.
The central European land locked country has not been very lucky in the competition, after three consecutive years of poor results and non-qualification the Czechs withdrew from the contest in 2010 and returned back after a 5 year hiatus in 2016.
