Aiko

Aiko - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024

Moscow born, Czech Republic raised and Brighton based, Aiko is an artist with a unique blend of cultures and influences, who explores topics such as love, solitude and understanding of self with her music.

Aiko's journey in the music industry has been nothing short of remarkable. Her sophomore album, Fortune's Child is a testament to her growth as an artist and the depth of her musical prowess.

Breaking barriers and making history, Aiko proudly stands as the first Czech artist to grace the iconic Times Square. Moreover, she has earned the distinction of being the first Czech female artist to contribute to the global Spotify Equal Campaign, emphasizing her commitment to inclusivity and equality within the music industry.

Elly

Elly - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024

Elly is a Czech singer and songwriter based in Prague. Her music is influenced by artists like Beyoncé, Sia or Adele, but she always adds a unique spark of her own personality to it. Her songs are airplayed by the biggest radio stations like Evropa 2, Fajn Radio or Radiožurnál.

Her song Are You There was a number one in the Evropa 2 Music Chart for several weeks and became the 6th most air-played song in Czechia according to IFPI. In 2022 she released the single High Speed featuring Ben Cristovao which has more than 500k views on YouTube.


She performed at festivals like Colours of Ostrava, Prague Pride or Praha Žije Hudbou.

Gianna Lei

Gianna Lei - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024

Gianna Lei’s strain of addictive pop is on the cusp of something great. With Bubblegum melodies, genre-bending beats and the witty lyrical flick of somebody who’s just had their trust broken for the first time, the London based artist is causing quite the stir.

Gianna’s heart was captured by Pop music from an early age. Born in Switzerland and raised in Prague with two older sisters, Gianna spent her youth absorbed in MTV and the escapism it provided through music. Early inspirations such as Gwen Stefani, Rihanna and Taylor Swift set the foundation for Gianna’s own musical flair, with subtle nods to her teen idols hidden within her tracks.

Lenny

Lenny - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024

With her unmistakable voice, outstanding songwriting skills and her strong work ethic, Lenny has established herself as one of the most popular artists in Czechia.

As a proud recipient of 6 Andel awards (the Czechia counterpart of the Grammy’s), she is a sought-after live performer, who has already shared the stage with the likes of Mike Shinoda, Imagine Dragons, LP or Emeli Sandé. Lenny`s debut album Hearts conquered media and fans by storm, and secured the top position in the charts.

MYDY

MYDY - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024 Aloha Burns

In just ten years on music scene they acquired status of one of the most productive bands in Czechia. After Glastonbury, and successful American, Canadian, European & Korean tours, Mydy Rabycad proved that the success of Czech musicians can more than transcend the borders of their birth country. All it takes is to have a clear vision, passion and believe in yourself.

The story of the group reminds us of the script of Hollywood melodrama with sweet happy end. The band members met on a summer music camp. Then, around 15 years old, they were immediately connected by common passion for music.

Tom Sean

Tom Sean - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024

Tom Sean is a singer, actor, songwriter and producer. Although he’s lived most of his life in Prague, Tom’s beloved mother, a former punk singer, gave birth to him in Dublin. That's where he’d spent the first years of his childhood before the family relocated back to Czechia.

Like many of today’s pop stars, Tom has gained his first bit of popularity on TikTok. He was only 14 when spotted by Honza Gajdos, one of the most prominent Czechian music producers, who would later become Sean’s manager and music producer.

Tomas Robin

Tomas Robin - Finalist in ESCZ 2024 - the Czechia national final to select their representative for Malmö 2024

Tomas Robin is pseudonym of the Czechia singer and songwriter Tomáš Červinka. Throughout his musical journey, Tomas has amassed a wealth of experiences, ranging from intimate club performances to gracing the stages of the largest Czech and Slovak festivals. He is known for his other projects We On The Moon and The Lighthouse Journey.

Tomas was voted by listeners as Newcomer of the Year and was received multiple nominations. He was also shared stages with notable acts such as All Time Low, Deaf Havana, Against The Current, and Young Guns. Notably, with The Lighthouse Journey, he made a history as the first Czech artist to be featured on the almighty British Kerrang! radio show.

Whoever wins will be looking to emulate the success of Vesna, who finished 10th in Liverpool for Czechia with their song My Sister's Crown.

The Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Malmö, Sweden on Tuesday 7 May (First Semi-Final), Thursday 9 May (Second Semi-Final) and Saturday 11 May (Grand Final) 2024.
