Last night Czech Republic held their first national final. Nine acts run for the honor to become the country's first representative to the next Eurovision Song Contest. And the winner is Kabat (the Coat) with Mala dama.

Kabat is a popular Czech rock band that was formed in 1983 by Milan Špalek, bass guitar, and Tomáš Krulich, guitar. They were later joined by Radek Hurčík, percussions, Josef Vojtek, frontman of the band and singer and finally Ota Váňa, guitar. The band has had the same line-up since 1990. They play hard rock and arena rock.
They released their first album Má ji motorovou in 1991, it was followed by ten more highly successful albums, the last being Corrida in 2006. Their 2002 album Suma sumarum became the best selling Czech album selling 128.000 copies.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
