It was announced that Benny Cristo was internally selected by the Czech broadcaster, Česka Televize to represent Czech Republic at Eurovision 2021.
Regarding the opportunity which Czech broadcaster gave him, Benny stated:”I’m very happy that Czech TV is giving me a chance to show what I got, even for next year. I promise viewers and fans that I will use all this time In order to give you something to look forward to.”
Benny won this year’s National Round, but unfortunately he didn’t get the opportunity to show up on the big Eurovision stage, so we decided to address him as a representative for next year. However, we would like to let fans and viewers speak into what song he would represent in the upcoming year, because ‘Kemama’ must not be according to the rules. We will keep the audience informed in time and continuouslyLucie Kapounová, Česka Televize
Benny Cristo should’ve performed the song “Kemama” at Eurovision 2020
When Benny was asked in Eurovisioncalls what would he do if he was asked by the Czech broadcaster to represent Czech Republic again he said that he would like to perform three completely different songs out of which the audience will have a chance to choose the one he will perform. If it will really be so we need to wait for more info from the Česka Televize about the selection process for the next years Eurovision. But one thing is for sure Benny will be performing at the contest.
Benny joins the 13 participants which so far confirmed to take part at Eurovision 2021: Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Israel, The Netherlands, Romania, Spain, Switzerland and Ukraine.
