Česko Slovenská Superstar (English: Czech&Slovak Superstar) is the joint Czech and Slovak version of Idol series' Pop Idol merged from Česko hledá SuperStar and Slovensko hľadá SuperStar which previous to that had three individual seasons each. The first season premiered in September 2009 with castings held in Prague, Brno, Bratislava and Košice. It is broadcast on TV Nova in the Czech Republic and on Markíza in Slovakia which have also been the broadcast stations for the individual seasons. Also both hosts have been their hosts countries before[clarification needed] as have been three out of the four judges. To legitimate a fair chance for each country's contestants to reach the final, twelve of the contestants will compete split into genders and nationalities in the semifinals, guaranteeing a 50% share for each country in the top 12.

Season 1

The castings were held in the summer of 2009. 11,575 participants signed up for the four opening casting rounds which took place in Prague, Brno, Bratislava, and Košice - that is two largest cities from each country. Out of the original number of participants, only 120 were elected by the jury to participate in a weekend theater selection round in Brno, after which 24 semifinalists remained to follow further selection process in Bratislava.

24 semifinalists were revealed in September when the show premiered on screen. Six boys and six girls from both countries competed for a spot in the top 12. In three Semifinals the guys performed on Saturday and the girls on Sunday night. The following Monday the lowest vote getter from each gender and country got eliminated (the viewers could vote for contestants from both countries). It means that three Czech and Slovak boys and three Czech and Slovak girls would make the finals.

In the live finals all remaining twelve contestants compete against each other.

Reactions

The show was well received amongst the viewers in both countries, reaching quotes around 50% and attracting nearly 3 million viewers. Besides the commercial aspect, the show - started in the month of the Czecho-Slovak cultural exchange - clearly demonstrates that even some twenty years after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the Czechs and Slovaks cannot do one without the other and do share a common identity. The show provides an excellent opportunity to pass this identity on the young generation who grew up after the split of the country and has therefore a limited knowledge of their compatriots and their language.

Some viewers and media, including the Wall Street Journal [1], have pointed out the occasionally obscene vocabulary of the jury. However, the vulgar language has been heavily reduced in the semifinal and final rounds.

Finals

Twelve contestants made it to the finals. TOP 12 consists of 3 Slovak boys, 3 Czech boys, 3 Slovak girls and 3 Czech girls. The first single recorded by TOP 12 is called "Příběh Nekončí / Príbeh Nekončí" (The Story Doesn't End) and it was composed by judge Pavol Habera (music) and slovak poem writer Daniel Hevier. Every final night has its theme. Audience can vote for contestants from the very beginning of the show, voting ends during result show day after. There were double eliminations in first two final rounds while only one contestant is being eliminated once the candidates got reduced to TOP 8. All gender and nationality quotas are abolished in the finals.
