Czech Nightingale 21
The twenty-third Czech Nightingale Award took place on November 19 at the Karlín Music Theater. The broadcast was broadcast on Nova TV from 20:20 Central European Time and was moderated by Ondřej Sokol and Aleš Háma.
This was the first year since 2017, when the competition was suspended after a controversy with the number of Ortel votes. Korunní mineral water became the general sponsor of the survey, which replaced the current partner Mattoni. The competition was renewed on the initiative of Karel Janeček. For the first time, his voting method D21 was used, in which the voter has a larger number of votes of the same weight. Jakub Horák became the director of the survey.

"He ironically described Janeček's closing speech as" the real icing on the cake "and said to Janeček:" Practically overnight, he became the star of disinformers who take him to heaven on social networks. "He added:" If Janeček does not want to be included as an opponent of vaccinations and measures such as Csáková or Volný, he should formulate his words better or not at all.
