In a recent statement, Czech Public Television (ČT) announced once again changes to its selection for Eurovision 2020.
Specifically, the number of artists, for the online form of the competition that will bring the Czech representative to Rotterdam, has been reduced from eight to seven.
ČT has not announced the reason for the withdrawal of the eighth entry, but it is suspected that it is due to the fact that the live national final has been converted to an internet one, as in the last two years.
The dates for the Eurovision Song CZ 2020 online national final are:
-06.01.2020 Press conference and announcement of the eight finalists
-13.01.2020 Release songs and start voting
-26.01.2020 End of voting and announcement of winner within a week
In Tel Aviv the Czech Republic was represented by Lake Malawi with the song “A Friend Of A Friend”, which took the eleventh position with 157 points. It was the second best place in the Czech Republic after Mikolas Josef’s sixth place in 2018.
