Eurovision 2022 Reviews – Czech Republic

Czech Republic has a mixed history at Eurovision, with more often than not the nation failing to qualify for the final. With a real chance this year, Czech Republic put their hopes in We Are Domi who will sing ‘Lights Off’

Song and Vocals 

The Czech national final was early on in the season, and at the time I didn’t think much of the competing entries. The result saw We Are Domi take the top spot, and after a few listens, I was hooked. The electronic track should have a fairly wide appeal, and should certainly lift the energy in the arena. 

The song builds well through from verse to pre-chorus, and then we hear the peaks with the big note in the choruses. The way this song is structured and produced feels high quality, and the type of song that you would be happy to hear in a party or club setting. The real danger with this in terms of Eurovision is the live vocals. I was under the impression that the national final featured live vocals, however seeing future performances gave some doubt. I worry for the more complex notes and whether she can successfully hit those notes. 

Performance and Act 

I hope that the nation can really capture that party vibe in the area, as I think this could be the key for success, at least in the televote. I also hope they can create some sort of futuristic vibe for the performance, without being too cliche. The instrumental parts of the song will be interesting too, as you really want to see the group dancing or moving to elicit the same response from the audience. 


If all elements come together on stage, this could end up much higher than many originally thought. This is a strong song that has what it takes for a high televote, and potentially a strong jury vote as well if the vocals live up to the studio version. I think it’s leaning towards a qualification, and perhaps a fairly comfortable one at that. 



Song and Vocals 

A strong electronic song from the Czech Republic that has the chance to make a big impression in the contest of 2022, that’s how I rate this song by We are Domi. I also have some doubts though and these are regarding the vocals of the lead singer. In their first live performance I think she was slightly off key at some points and this needs to be improved.

Performance and Act 

I think the performance of this song will be closer to the first clip they presented to us than the official video clip of the song. A bit of a static performance, with some minor dancing. Two electronic band members on the side and a lot of focus on the lead singer. 


Czech Republic is a definite qualifier for the final to me. The question before the rehearsals start is whether they will also be strong enough vocally and visually to go for a top-10 position for the second time in their history at the contest. Fingers crossed!
