Almost three weeks ago Martina Bárta was announced as the Czech Republic’s Eurovision 2017 entrant. Now, they’ve released the song she will be singing titled “My Turn”. It is, yet, another ballad, but we’re sure Martina Bárta will give it her all on the night.
The ballad is more of a pop direction for her, which is very different to her jazz songs that can be found on YouTube. She is also a part of jazz band 4 To The Bar. This new direction could launch her career in music.

The song is a catchy power ballad, that we can definitely see Martina Bárta nailing on the night. But will that be enough to secure herself a place in the Grand Final? Especially since the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest is already saturated with ballads.
The Czech Republic is one of the newest countries to take part in Eurovision; debuting in 2007. They have failed to qualify for the Grand Final every year, up until last year. In 2016, Gabriela Guncikova, with her song “I Stand”, managed to advance to the Grand Final, where she placed 25th with 41 points. Martina Bárta is hoping to do beat that score in May.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 is definitely going to be competitive this year. The semi-finals will take place on 9 May and 11 May, with the Grand Final taking place on 13 May 2017. Last year, Jamala won with “1944”, bringing the contest to her home country of Ukraine. It will be held at the International Exhibition Centre in Kyiv. Who will win? Time will tell.
