After she moved back to her hometown Prague in 2008, she performed there in the musical Mona Lisa . She also participated in the single Halt dich an mir fest by Revolverheld , which was released on November 19, 2010. From November 2009 to November 2010, Jandová presented the program neoMusic on the TV station ZDFneo .
