Czech Republic: My impressions from the first dress rehearsal (ESC+Plus in Stockholm)

It was the definition of pitch perfect. The staging might be simple but Gabriela Gunčíková uses her powerful vocals to propel this song forward.

I knew that vocals would not be an issue for Gabriela. The Czech Republic has struggled in the past to qualify and unfortunately they may this year. The trick is, this song is good. This performer is good and it’ll be a shame for it not to move on to the finals.

The traditional Eurovision fan is being brought out at the climax of the song, whipping Gunčíková’s hair and white gown.

Do I love the dress? No. Was the first rehearsal promising? Most definitely.

I am really excited to see this entry live during semi final 1. This difficult semi final will prove to be challenging for the Czech Republic, and I hate to be pessimistic. The song’s slower tempo may end up being the kiss of death, but I hope not.
