Countdown to Vienna Review - CZECH REPUBLIC!!!

The Czech Republic enter the ESC for the fourth time this year with the ballad "Hope Never Dies".  The country has not taken part in Eurovision since 2009 when an eejit in an orange cape flung himself around the stage singing about gypsies.  This year's entry from the Czech Rep couldn't be more different!

It's a ballad that could perhaps be more suited to the West End stage rather than the Eurovision stage, but it was written by the male half of the duo, Vaclav Noid Barta, who performs it with Marta Jandova.  Here, have a look!:

So what do our panel of pop pundits think?  Let's see...

Asta Bjornsdottir:  "Achhhh..... Quelle drama!!! He‘s not much of a singer and... and...... nei, takk. I´m not into this."

Hasse Skoldebjer: "10/10 for him! Woof!!! The song is ok, nothing special. 5/10"

Annemieke Kelleter - see review for Lithuania...!!

Adam and Charlotte Lane: "This is an over-the-top Phantom of the Opera / Evanescence / Pearl Jam mash-up.
Vocally, she's completely unnecessary, I would have preferred a screaming guitar solo instead. His voice is great. Only thing missing is Meatloaf crashing through the wall on his motorbike. I was upset to realise that wasn't going to happen. 1/10"

So mixed reviews from the panel - what do you think? Let us know below! :)
