With the 2021 season well and truly underway, we are beginning to see the songs slowly but surely trickle through. Soon, we will be hearing the song from the Czech Republic, who have internally selected their 2020 artist Benny Cristo. The national broadcaster Ceska Televize have just confirmed that Benny Cristo’s 2021 entry will be internally selected to represent the country in May.
This news comes about a month after it was revealed that Benny Cristo was in the process of selecting his song for 2021. It is also revealed that the Czech Republic have a new Head of Delegation. Kryštof Šámal will now be taking the reins as the HoD at the 2021 contest, taking over from last year’s HoD Cyril Hirsch.
