On Monday, Czech TV released the seven competing entries in Eurovision Song CZ (ESCZ) 2020.

The online voting process for the Czech Republic’s Eurovision 2020 national final was also opened, and will remain open until 2 February. But, while we wait for the final results, we want to know who you want to win ESCZ 2020.

If you haven’t already, watch the music videos for each of the seven entries here, or take a listen to the songs in the Spotify playlist below.

Once you’re ready, go ahead and vote in our poll for your favourites.

ESCZ 2020: Participants and songs

This year’s ESCZ includes two returnees. Both Barbora Mochowa and Pam Rabbit also competed in last year’s competition. Barbora returns with the ethereal ballad “White & Black Holes”. Meanwhile, Pam is competing with the edgy pop song “Get Up”.

The biggest stars in the lineup are Olga Lounová and Benny Cristo (also known as Ben Cristovao). Olga is a showbiz veteran and is hoping to take her song “Dark Water” to the Eurovision 2020 stage in Rotterdam. Benny, on the other hand, is one of the Czech Republic’s top rappers. He’s entered the competition with the song “Kemama”.

Elis Mraz & Čis T are mixing cultures. Although Elis is a singer from the Czech Republic, Čis T hails from neighbouring Slovakia. They’ve joined forces on “Wanna Be Like”.

Having honed his talent at the British and Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) in London, Karelll is now hoping to represent his home country on the Eurovision stage. He’s taking part in ESCZ 2020 with the piano-driven ballad “At Least We’ve Tried”.

Finally, is the band We All Poop. This four-piece formed specifically for ESCZ 2020, but they’ve quickly stood out from the pack with their name and ‘planned coincidence punk-pop’ song “All the Blood (Positive Song Actually)”.

Poll: Who should win the Czech Republic’s ESCZ 2020?

It was initially intended that these seven acts would compete in a televised national final. However, that idea was subsequently scrapped.

Instead, the method from 2018 and 2019 will be retained whereby fans can vote for their favourites via the Eurovision app.

This online voting is set to close at 20:00 CET on 2 February. The results will be announced the following day.

These public votes will count for 50% of the overall score. The remaining half will come from a panel of international jurors. Once again, international viewers can also vote. In previous editions, these votes were weighted to equal one jury vote.

Who is your favourite in ESCZ 2020? Which act and song do you think would be best for Eurovision? Let us know in the comments below!

Ok, done. Gave my APP heart to Karelll. Such a beautiful song. 🙂 I was back and forth with him and Barbora for days. Both amazing! Olga and WAP are also great. 🙂

Pam Rabbit should win. She has a great and an original song.

What a very strong selection! I am still torn on who to vote for (both here and in the app). All seven songs have strong appeal within the audience who like that genre. Personally, I am between Barbora, Karelll, Olga and We All Poop, but I do appreciate Ben, Pam and Elis feat. ?is T as well. Objectively, I can see any among the seven acts to bring Czechia their third consecutive qualification. Bravo! 🙂

Thanks, Purple. 😉 Eventually, I’ll have to pick someone to vote for, but the Czechs are not making it easy. Probably the strongest selection so far (even if Iceland and Portugal are also really good on average).

I really like ‘We All Poop’ but I don’t agree with their message.

Ben is #1 trending on youtube in Czech Republic and he has many followers and many known people supported him (for example Slovak youtuber Expl0ited), I’m 99,99% sure he will win the televote 😀

For 2021, I should porpuse the former husband of Olga Lounova, Xindl X. He’s an amazing czech composer, he sings in czech and all his songs have a special flavor. Search him in Spotify or YouTube and you’re gonna like him. Even he and Olga did a duo. I’m gonna put the link below.

views are an indicator of who’s gonna do well in the public vote, and within the czech republic everyone knows benedict cristovao has the biggest fanbase. idk how international jurors will vote but he’s likely got 12 points already (last year the czech public’s winner didn’t win btw, it was jakub ondra)

Has to be Dark Water, Olga can sing live, like properly sing and this has the most potential, can be staged very easily and effectively and has the most potential out of any other of the shortlisted candidates, the closest competition to her is Barbora. Top 7 Dark Waters – 8.95/10 – ethereal masterpiece White and Black Holes – 7.27/10 – alternate but, still enticing and very good. This year’s Dihaj (Azerbaijan 2017) Kemana – 6.8/10 – some urban flavours with a nod to the Carribean and a taste of Latin inspiration Get Up – 6.32/10 – a bit of… Read more »

I finally voted in the app today – for We All Poop, but tbh I won’t be angry if any of these song would win. Not that I love them all, but I don’t hate any and they’ll all end up on my playlist (well, maybe not Get Up).
My top 7:
1. We All Poop
2. Elis Mraz & ?is T
3. Benny Cristo
4. Barbora Mochowa
5. Olga Lounová
6. Karelll
7. Pam Rabbit

Its sad that there won’t be a televised show, cause I love 6 songs and would love to see them live. I have seen a vid of barbora singing her song live and she hits all those high notes. She is my number 1, but I could also live with a win from elis mraz or we all poop.

For me it’s either Barbora Mochowa or We All Poop. Barbora because I’m the most familiar with her name in the Czech national selection last year, although she lost to Lake Malawi, and WAP because… they have an interesting-sounding name and song. Both are pretty solid.

Team Benny Cristo. I’m not sure, why he’s currently last in this poll, and I probably don’t wanna know. This tune is so infectious and varied (this bridge is everything!) and so addictive, I can’t stop listening to it.

his song is urban and grandmavision stans CANNOT stand it! we all poop are first solely bc of their name but the song disappointed me tbh

Grandmavision is funny.
“All the blood” is an okay song, a bit too britpop by numbers for my taste (I refuse to call this anything punk), surely not a winner. Ben Cristovao on the other hand could be on to something (and I assume he can sing live, we’re not yet sure if that is the case for WAP).

he can’t just sing live, he can PERFORM life, and that’s how he got 15k ppl to see him at the o2 arena in prague a few months ago. i get that kemama doesn’t suit everyone’s taste (especially the average eurovision fans, who are less urban oriented than the general public), but let’s give some credit where it’s due

For the juries it might be a bit repetitive

I can see that people write this all the time, but how is this repetitive (I mean apart from the chorus which, by definition, has to be repeated)?

Reply to  Tibor

What I found repetitive was the chorus being repeated 6 times ( and it would be ok if a 5 second phrase is repeated 6 times , that’s normal but repeating a 11 second phrase 6 times is thoda extra )without him changing the way he sings em , and then even in the verses most lines are repeated twice That said I enjoyed the song a lot till 1:10 in the video The part from 1:10 to 1:35 I don’t like 1:35 onwards I started liking again and then I realised that he was singing the chorus 4 times… Read more »

Well, as I said, the chorus is made to be repeated, and there’s no correct amount of repetitions. I’m not quite sure, why you say, he never changes the way he’s singing it, because already at the beginning, he starts with the first chorus an octave lower. Additional variation comes from the instrumentation and the combination of the different elements of the song, not to mention the bridge, which is dope. It’s not a conventional verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus til fade structure, but that is really nothing I’d ever complain about.

I really appreciate you trying to explain it to me, but unfortunately I don’t understand, what you mean. 🙁 What should he change for you to enjoy it more? But I’m glad it’s not the bridge that’s putting you off.

Five of them would work for me. Not a fan of “At Least We’ve Tried” and “All The Blood” (no good band entries this year ;;) but everything else would work. Barbora’s is probably my favourite.

Would be shocked if Benny didn’t win just because of the domestic fanbase he enjoys, even though I think his song doesn’t have enough progression.
