Cohesiveness of Package
My Turn is a sophisticated slow burner of a ballad that is perfect for a TV or film soundtrack, but not so good for qualifying from this year’s most tricky semi-final.
Having presented Marta Bárta as their singer, the Czech Republic have just released their song My Turn.
Marta will perform My Turn in the second half of semi final 1.
My Turn is a sophisticated slow burner of a ballad that is perfect for a TV or film soundtrack, but not so good for qualifying from this year’s most tricky semi-final where the first half is already packed with ballads.
Gabriela Gunčíková only just qualified in 9th last year with more interesting ballad. Martina will surely struggle to standout against Australia, Portugal and Belgium in the first half, with Georgia, Albania and Finland also fighting for the same votes. Then in the second half, we have the rumoured ethno ballad from Armenia and diaspora-magnet, Poland.
Keeping things brief, I would err on the side of non-qualification for now and see what the staging brings in May.
Can the Czech Republic qualify this year?
