The Czech Republic are going for a national final again! For the first time since their debut with Kabát in 2007, who were also chosen through a national final, a national selection will be held to choose the entry for the Eurovision Song Contest!
The choice will be between 6 tracks. The Czech public can vote for their favourite through the official Eurovision app and at some stage the taste of Europe will be considered as well, as an international jury will be included in the selection.
This was all just confirmed by the Czech Head of Delegation, Jan Bors:
V lednu 2018 budeme dělat po deseti letech národní kolo Eurovize! Vybírat se bude ze 6ti skladeb! Hlasovat budete moci přes oficiální eurovizní aplikaci https://t.co/OTtJlGhydh . Vaše hlasy doplní hlasy mezinárodní poroty! Už se těšíte? #eurovize
