The Czech entry “I Stand” is great pop song, which seems to be tailor-made for the wonderful voice of Gabriela. The stunning entry has nothing Czech at all, it’s a cosmopolitan song, written by the Swede Sara Biglert and the Irishman Aidan O'Connor. Judging by the video clip, the Czechs have tried the utmost best to shine in Stockholm.
Maybe the long yearned dream to reach the Grand Final comes true this year. Even a top position would be possible if the stage show is equally impressive as the video clip. Good choice!

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
