“I don’t have words, it’s a really nice feeling. I’d be pleased with one prize, so I don’t know how to handle the three. I’m grateful to the fans for the votes and for being able to share my songs with someone, that it works for us in the band. and I hope it will only get better, “Ztracený told ČTK.
Rapper Martin Pohl, performing under the name Řezník, was declared the golden nightingale in the Hip Hop & Rap category. The announcer of the Internet Star category and the then general partner of the Czech Nightingale poll, Mattoni, excluded him from the competition in 2017 on the grounds that “he expresses violence and substance abuse in the lyrics of his songs in a vulgar way, explicitly depicting violence and substance abuse”. The case provoked conflicting reactions and was the reason why the singer Tomáš Klus decided to boycott the poll in the following years due to alleged censorship.
You can watch the interview with Marek Ztracený from Český Slavík 2021 here:
In today’s speech, Řezník criticized the pop scene and called on people not to send him votes again. “I’m sick of Czech music,” Řezník said today as disapproving of some of the audience.
Otakar Petřina, known under the stage name Marpo, won the second highest number of votes in the Hip Hop & Rap category. Rapper Raego, named Ladislav Pham, finished third.
The discovery of the year is the Hradec Králové singer Michal Horák. He won in front of the singer Annabelle and the group Bert & Friends in the audience vote. In the category of the most streaming song on the Czech internet, the song Divided Worlds by rapper Viktor Sheen won.
The second place in the category of bands was taken by the group Kryštof and the third by Kabát, which won the last year of the poll in 2017. However, Kabát returned the award due to unrecognized votes for the group Ortel, which would have won without the intervention of the organizers. “The bands whose songs we played at the campfire over the years ended up behind us,” stated the singer Mirai Navrátil, the singer of Czech-Japanese origin of the Mirai group.
The second place among the singers was the singer Jan Pokorný, entering under the name Pokáč. The frontman of the group, Kryštof Richard Krajčo, won the bronze nightingale.
Ewa Farna, who finished second four years ago in the last year, defeated Lucie Bílá and Eva Burešová third. Former First Lady Dagmar Havlová presented the winner’s prize.
The gala evening was accompanied by actors Aleš Háma and Ondřej Sokol. Apart from the nominated musicians, the guests in the packed auditorium of the Karlín Theater also included Ivana Gottová, the wife of the singer Karel Gott, who became the Golden or Czech Nightingale forty-two times. Some guests came to today’s award ceremony of the funeral of musician Miroslav Žbirka. His recent death was commemorated at the awards ceremony by Fair Play, which received standing ovations from the crowded auditorium.
More than 216,000 voters took part in the vote this year, the most since the poll.
The mathematician and businessman Karel Janeček is behind the renewal of the Czech Nightingale. In his speech today, he criticized the government’s anti-epidemic measures, which he said had had a major negative impact on culture and led to the division of society. “We must not succumb to the terrible pressure to vaccinate our children against a disease that does not endanger them in any way,” Janeček said.
In his speech, he also announced the announcement of the Eternal Nightingale Award. People can vote for its winner until 21 December until 21:12.
