About Mikolas Josef 

Mikolas Josef is a songwriter, producer and music video director. In 2015 he decided to leave the modelling space to deal exclusively with his love which is music. Born in Prague on the 4th of October 1995, he comes from a musical family and has been playing guitar since he was five years old. His parents, in addition to their music skills, are both English teachers, so Mikolas is a graduate of the English School in Prague and he has also studied at the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art.

Czech public television, looking for an artist to play “My Turn” in 2017, approached Mikolas Josef, who, however, denied the proposal, saying what the song did not suit him.

The Czech national final was held online rather than television, giving the audience the chance to vote at no cost, through a special “Eurovision application”. The public vote was combined with that of the international jury and on January 29th, 22-year-old Mikolas was announced that he would fly the colors of Czechia in Lisbon among five other candidates.

Czech Republic in the Eurovision song contest

The Czech Republic has participated in the Eurovision competition since 2007 and has taken part five times. The country took part until 2009 and in the coming years he abstained until he returned in 2015. The reason was due to the the poor results in the contest and that the contest was not very much well known in the Czech public. Until 2009, not only did not go to the final, but that year he did not get any points in the semifinals. In 2015 returned with Marta Jandová and Václav Noid Bárta with the song “Hope Never Dies” and despite the hopes of qualifying,  did not make it to the Grand Final again. The coveted qualification happened finally in 2016 with Gabriela Gunčíková with the song “I Stand” but unfortunately came second last in the final after receiving points only from the jury votes. Last year the flag of  Czech Republic was held by Martina Barta, with  the song “My Turn”  and again did not manage to get the ticket for the Final despite the qualification of the previous year.

LIE TO ME LYRICS

Oh she’s a good girl at home
But the skirt goes up
Like Marilyn Monroe’s

Papa likes the drama
Mama hotter than lava
She rocking high heels, Prada,
Her face like Madonna

By the way she moved,
got me making a puddle
Baby I already knew
You would be nothing but a trouble

Damnit everybody knows
She never loved for real
Honey bunny up all night
Wannabe couple goals queen

I know you
I know you ‘bop-whop-a-lu bop’ on his wood bamboo
when you were still seeing me
and well he didn’t even knew, hmm,
But God damn it come and count to three
now sit down GGY I’m on fire

So come and lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Come a little closer
Lie to me,
Lie to me, oh baby,
lean upon my shoulder
Lie to me

Get down on my body
love me like it was always meant to be
Now you love somebody new I always knew
So come and give it to me

When the beat dropped, she dropped
Dropped it like its hot
And now without a second thought
she got me doing what I’m not
Then it got heavy
Mom I’m feeling home already but steady
Plenty mother***ers wanna eat my spaghetti

Then she got one of my friends
She got him dripping on wood
I know it hurt so bad but it feels so good
Quit sweet talking me
now baby I don’t give a f**k
you should have thought about me
before you ****ed him at the club

I know you ‘bop-whop-a-lu bop’ on his wood bamboo
when you were still seeing me
and well he didn’t even knew, hmm,
But God damn it come and count to three
now sit down GGY I’m on fire

So come and lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Come a little closer
Lie to me,
Lie to me, oh baby,
lean upon my shoulder
Lie to me

Get down on my body
love me like it was always meant to be
Now you love somebody new I always knew
So come and give it to me

You know I like it
(When you lie, lie, lie)
You look so good
(When you lie, lie, lie
Set my camel in the mood
(When you lie, lie, lie)
(When you lie, lie, lie)

So come and lie to me
Lie to me, oh baby
Come a little closer
Lie to me,
Lie to me, oh baby,
lean upon my shoulder
Lie to me

Get down on my body
love me like it was always meant to be
Now you love somebody new I always knew
So come and give it to me
