Czech Republic – According to an article by the Czech website novinky.cz, we shouldn’t hope for a return of the Central European country any time soon. The speaker of Czech television CT, Ladislav Stichy told them: “Our audience hasn’t taken the Eurovision Song Contest very well. Furthermore the press was very critical about it. If there were fundamental changes in the contest, we would consider coming back.” The Czech Republic has participated 3 times and is one of the least successful countries in recent years! In 2007 they came 28th and last with only 1 point in the semifinal with Kábat and “Malá dáma”. In 2008 Tereza Kerndlová came second to last in the second semifinal and 2009 Gipsy.cz came last with no point.
It seems like Czech television sees all the problems in the concept of the contest and not in their choices of entries. Looking at the quality of the three songs entered by the Czechs, that seems quite unrealistic.
Judge for yourself:
Kábat – Malá dáma
Tereza Kerndlová – Have Some Fun
Gypsie.cz – Aven Romale
