It's an honor for me and I'm really happy about it. Together with Marta, we're going to try not to embarrass the Czech RepublicBenešová (Czech Radio) and musicians Michal Hrůza and Michael Kocáb. Producer Ondřej Soukup explains: "We have been going through Czech musicians basically one by one and finally figured that on an European contest like this one, nobody is going to judge based on popularity, but rather how charming and how good of a singer the contender is. There are not many people that are really worth betting your own shoes on. In this contest, each contender only has one chance that lasts three minutes."
