The Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef has progressed to Saturday’s final of the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. Josef, with the song Lie to Me, was one of nine entrants to make it out of the first semi-final of the Europe-wide competition on Tuesday night.
The 22-year-old’s participation in Eurovision had been threatened after he sustained a spinal injury in a fall during rehearsals last week. He is only the second Czech to reach the final of the competition.
