More than four hundred songs were submitted to the national selection this year. Among the six competing entries in the national selection, three of them have been written were respective artists. Mikolas Josef who won the selection with “Lie to Me”, will have to rewrite his song for Lisbon due to the use of explicit language in the lyrics.
Czech Republic are hoping that 2018 will see their fortunes reversed. After finally qualifying for the final for the first time ever in 2016, last year Martina Bárta could only manage 13th Place in the semi-final with her entry ‘My Turn’. This meant that once more, Czech Republic were not present in the final in Kyiv.
