passionpop: (southpark)
Czechia/Czech Republic
Semi final 1
Artist: Martina Bárta
Song: My Turn
Odds: $301

Word of the day
drzý - Sassy
well for Eurovision anyways.



Martina Bárta is a singer and French horn player. She plays the French horn both in a classical context as well as improvised, like the sassy jazz artist she is. Eurovision won’t care for her sass and this song may not get out of the semi.

This song was written by Kyler Niko and DWB (Paul Drew, Greig Watts and Pete Barringer). Pete Barringer also co-wrote this year’s entry for Poland. This song is possibly the better of the two but it feels wrong. It feels more gospel than jazz. It is Ok though because if DWB are the new SAW then Martina Bárta can be the new Rick Astley. Her low tones might even complement his….

Since returning to Eurovision after a five year hiatus, the Czech Republic changed from national finals to internal selections to determine who to send to Eurovision. These have been more successful, but then they could not have been worse. Czechia/Czech Republic has only made it to the final once in 6 attempts and even then the finished second last. Maybe Czechia needs friends, either that or better entries.

2015 was the first internal selection. It was not terrible, but it wasn’t great either. This years song is probably better. They are learning but baby steps.
