Czech Republic in Eurovision Song Contest

Czech Republic 2018: Mikolas Josef - "Lie To Me"

Czech Republic has participated in Eurovision Song Contest 9 times. After three years of very bad results (2007, 2008, 2009), they decided to withdraw from the competition for five years, with only 10 points on their Eurovision-account. But their hope for Eurovision never died, so they returned to the contest again in 2015 and the following years.
