EUROVISION fans were taken aback by the Czech actor’s British accent.
Viewers were stunned to sing with an English accent, but couldn’t agree that it sounded like he was from Essex, Manchester or London.
One of them joked, “By the time gin and beer kicks in, those Eurovision songs will have grown on me. The Czech mockney accent from London is my favorite so far.”
Someone added: “Seriously, why does the guy from the Czech Republic have a Manchester accent? #Eurovision.”
Another said: “Why is the Czech guy doing some sort of Essex accent? Cute in a VERY obviously way of a Bel Ami boy subgroup I guess, but way too young and neat for that old lady. queen. Are the others her brothers or her clones?
Someone else said: “The Czech Republic was very funny, though. They can’t lose with that East End accent.”
One fan added: “Also back to the Czech band named after a Malawian lake with a British accent?”
A confused viewer said: “The Czech Republic with a southern accent? What happened? # Eurovision2019 #EUROVISION.”
Someone added: “How did an obviously Czech guy manage to make a perfect Warrington accent ??”
In Tuesday’s semi-finals, BBC viewers were stunned at how much the Lake Malawi singer looked like Joey Essex.
Performing the energetic pop track Friend of a Friend, the “cute” singer rapped with his “cockney accent”.
Tweets poured in and one person raved: “Czech Republic, I thought it was Joey Essex singing ha”
Another said: “Wow I didn’t know Joey Essex could sing?” as another fan asked: “@bbceurovision anyone who sees Joey Essex performing for #CZE”
And another remarked: “What is Joey Essex doing on #Eurovision @bbceurovision”
Their song Friend of a Friend is currently one of the favorites in this year’s live music competition.
Meanwhile, his other band members have been compared to James Blunt and Sean Mendes.
