Aiko has won ESCZ 2024 with her empowerment anthem ‘Pedestal’ and will represent Czechia at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö next May.

The culmination of a week-long voting process via the official Eurovision Song Contest app after the ESCZ 2024 show, saw Aiko emerge as the clear winner.

Fellow contender Elly secured the runner-up spot, with the band Mydy claiming third. Notably, Tom Sean and Lenny followed closely in the rankings. You can rewatch ESCZ 2024 on our YouTube channel.

Kryštof Šámal, Czechia’s Head of Delegation, shared his excitement: 

‘This year, we witnessed an incredible and diverse cast of finalists, leading to a dynamic evolution in the race for victory. With a total of 98,000 votes received, each stage of the last week presented a different winner almost every two days. 

We are excited to start working with Aiko to deliver a brilliant performance, taking advantage of the substantial resources Eurovision provides and allowing for ample preparation time. I am confident that Czechia will be proud of the outcome. 

'Pedestal' is an anthem of empowerment and self-love, emphasises the determination to prioritise independence. It highlights the importance of putting oneself first in the face of adversity and any toxic relationships.'
