Selection format

Czech Republic surprisingly announced it would make a comeback in Vienna after last participating the song contest in 2009. Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta were internally chosen by the broadcaster.

Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta

Marta is better known in Germany where she has pursued her career since the 1990s. Together with the rock band Die Happy she has released eight albums and toured across the country. One of the highlights in her career was in 2011 when she sang the official anthem of the German women’s football team at FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Václav on the other hand has focused on musicals. Václav has released one solo album in 2013 and over the years he has collaborated with some of the leading Czech musicians. He has also penned the duo’s Eurovision entry. The pre-selection jury was unaware of this when they matched the songs with potential candidates.
