The Czech Republic reached new heights at Eurovision 2016, qualifying for the grand final for the very first time.

And now the bar is set high for Eurovision 2017, with the broadcaster looking for major talent and Czech artists scrambling to prove that they have what it takes.

Now, in an interview with escportal.czMikolas Josef — a young and enthusiastic Czech singer — has announced his ambitions for Eurovision in Kyiv.

mikolas-josef-czech-republic-2In the interview Mikolas sounds very confident about his chances and makes it clear he is only aiming for victory.

As he says: “No one would go to Kyiv with a thought about second place.”

For the last month he and his team, in which he has a lot of faith, have been working on the song and are preparing to finalize and record it in Vienna. Mikolas has opted for “a slower ballad full of emotions, but with dancing passages — current pop”.

Mikolas knows that you need not only a good song, but also a great mikolas-josef-czech-republicperformance to win Eurovision. He would love to include some dancing and acrobatic elements, as well as modern visual effects. His previous experience with breakdance and gymnastics will serve him well and could lead to some jaw-dropping, super-memorable moments. Legs above head? Yasssss.

Looking at him and listening to him, his confidence really shines through. And he isn’t embarassed about that.

For the moment my only plan is for the Czech Republic to win Eurovision for the first time in history.

Mikolas kicked off his career with a focus on folk music, but later turned to pop, house and hiphop.

Nevertheless, he tries to keep those folky elements in his current songs.

We should note that in addition to music, gymnastics and dancing Mikolas has also tried his hand as a professional model. Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model? Done!

He’s got ambition, talent and looks. Does that make him good enough for the Czech Republic? Are you curious about the song? Let us know in the comments below!

Many people here don’t like it, because people can accidently mistake Czechia with Chechnya. And… we really hate when people do this, because usually it happens during some terrorist attack…

@Oxana I think it is partly about politics (use of the term “Czechia” was our highly unpopular president´s idea), but mostly it´s “if something works, do not fix it”. 😉

Grobian,
I see. Why people making a fuss about shortened version? It’s something about politics or just matter of taste?

@Oxana Not really. The oficial English name of the country was, is and will be the Czech Republic. Czechia was just an informal alternative. This year bureaucrats made some formal arrangements to legitimize it more officially, but they failed miserbaly. The term Czechia is highly unpopular among people, Czech athletes even refuse to have it on their dresses etc. Czech broadcaster also always use the formal form. The fact that many countries already use some one-word term for the country, has nothing to do with this. @Polegend Godgarina Yes, Poláková was pregnant then and she is pregnant again. I don´t… Read more »

how many artists who claimed they are going “to win” actually won in the last 15-10 years? I can praise selfconfidence of this guy but what if his statement is a bit bold to be accepted by majority of voters?

“A slower ballad full of emotions, but with dancing passages — current pop.”
I can already hear a remix of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” from this definition, hopefully I’m wrong.

@ Grobian – again? Wasn’t she pregnant during the Nafrn?ná video shoot in the summer of 2015? Anyway, I don’t think she would accept it at all because, despite her being hysterical and super talented, she looks like that type of artist that looks down on Eurovision.

I wasn’t ready for this Czech hotness, please put a warning next time. Can we(Croatia) steal him if Czech Republic doesn’t select him?

A bit off topic but apparently we can now call Czech Republic with its newly-legitimized short name “Czechia”. I kinda like it. 😀

Musically there’s a lot of potential. Would be a breath of fresh air for the Czech Republic.

@Polegend Godgarina Barbora Poláková wouldn´t accept it, she is currently pregnant. Mikolas seems to be really promising.

His music is not my cup of tea, so I wouldn’t really be happy too see him at Eurovision stage. Unless he would surprise me with at least decent song.
I’d rather want to see Marketa Irglova or Aneta Langerova instead.

Barbora Poláková first!

It would be a very good choice. Let’s see the song (if he’s chosen) to determine if he can win but he has the potential to do very well.

If he’s determined in winning, then he might really win… plus he’s a cute guy, so why not? There’s no harm in trying

You know what. Yeah! Let him go! I bet he can do great cause he clearly knows what it takes. So lets give him a chance. An since he said ballad the Czech broadcaster should be salivating at the thought.
