Mikolas Josef, representing the Czech Republic at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Lie To Me', just finished his first rehearsal, accompanied by professional dancers and brothers Kristián and Marek Mensa.

Mikolas Josef is a composer, producer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and director of music videos. He grew up in Prague and Znojmo, but now lives in Vienna. Mikolas comes from a family of musicians and has been playing the guitar since he was five. He wrote his Eurovision entry Lie To Me with renowned European sound-mix engineer Nikodem Milewski, who is also Mikolas' "musical mentor".

During his first rehearsal of Lie To Me, Mikolas showcased his singing skills alongside some serious dance moves on the Eurovision stage. He starts with his backpack on his back, his signature look, but takes it off part way through the song to do a frontflip in the middle of the stage. Pretty impressive!
