The band Vesna has been chosen to represent the Czech Republic at this year’s Eurovision Song contest. The all-female group won the national round with the song “My Sister’s Crown”, beating competitors such as Markéta Irglová and Pam Rabbit.

For the first time in 15 years, the Czech Republic hosted a live broadcast of the songs competing to represent the country at this year’s Eurovision Song contest. On the evening of Monday, January 30, five musical acts including Rodan, Maella and Markéta Irglová, known to international audiences from the hit film Once, competed against each other to be the one to have the honour. However, instead of crowning a winner during the show, fans were given until 6 February to vote via the official Eurovision app.

The Prague-based band Vesna received the most votes from the public and will get to perform their song, My Sister’s Crown, in Liverpool this May. Band leader Patricie Fuxová says the song is about sisterhood, respect, support, and cooperation. Bulgarian rapper Tanita Yankova and Ukrainian musician Kateryna Vatchenko also feature in the Eurovision song.
