Eurovision 2017: [Czech Republic] Martina Barta / My Turn

This song for the Czech Republic is a tough one to get my head around. The promotional video is incredibly absorbing – a heart-warming message that makes detaching the song from the visuals quite a challenge.

And you need to be able to do that with Eurovision songs. Because with given that the running order for each show isn’t known until proceedings get underway in Kiev, having a sense of whether the simplicity of the production will help the song stand out, makes knowing whether this is a contender for the final is difficult.

‘My Turn’ is a sweet heartfelt number, reminiscent of Norway’s A Monster Like Me from 2015, but its stage presentation (especially if she wears the gold lame number) will let it down.
