When Czech Republic entered the Eurovision Song Contest (fairly late) in 2007, their initial results were not very hopeful. In their first year as well as in 2009 the Czech Republic finished last. After these depressing results the country took a break, but returned in 2015. And now they seem to have acquired a renewed interest.
The festival has gained a large amount of popularity since Mikolas Josef’s participation in 2018, who, with his song Lie to me, gained the highest result for the Czech Republic ever: a sixth place in the final.
