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.'
Aiko, currently based in Brighton (United Kingdom), is a visionary artist who delves into profound themes such as love, solitude, and self-understanding, using her music as a medium for introspection and connection.
