After Mikolas Josef’s successful participation in Lisbon and his 6th placing in the grand final, interest among local acts in Eurovision has escalated in the landlocked country of Central Europe. One of these artists is Jakub Ondra.

According to local media Jakub Ondra was reported as one of the artists interested in representing Czech Republic in the forthcoming Eurovision in Tel Aviv. Jakub released today his new single Space Sushi, which seems to be his music proposal for the Eurovision 2019.  Czech site seznamzpravy.cz reports that Space Sushi, is Jakub’s entry through which he is aiming to win the national final and represent the country in Tel Aviv.  You can watch Jakub Ondra’s video clip of the song here or listen to it on  spotify.

“Singles Space Sushi is an incentive for all lazy people to get really done. Actually, I put it down for my drummer Stepan, because I wanted to motivate him that when we work together, we can pull it somewhere. And in this spirit, a video clip was created. “

And he adds:” Space Sushi is a metaphor. For each of us, something else is hidden underneath. For the actor, it’s Oscar, for his father’s house for his family. It is, in fact, a dream for the work done. “

The Czech republic’s national broadcaster, CT, will reveal the 6 competing acts of ESCZ 2019, the country’s national final, on January 7 through a special press conference .
