i think this song was one of the best song that year same with norway and iceland. I can,t understarnd why europe gave it just 9 points

9th October 2009, 13:48
I agree;)
It was the best song Czech in those 3 years

She was just as generic as Ukraine and Greece, so why didnt she do as well, I wonder...

I was in the arena that night, and i thought it was going to qualify. It is a good song, nothing OUTSTANDING, but the best Czech entry of the 3 they had :) It was underrated :(

Even though the lyrics weren't great,it's still probably my fav song of 2008.

It's one of my favorites from 2008...

Same thing for Romania 2009...I think it was the same type of song as Turkey 2009 or Armenia 2008, or Greece 2008, up-beated songs, simple lyrics...beautiful girls dancing....but Romania came 19th, while all the rest in top 5. I think is very important which country is represented by a certain song....is not a receipe that works for everybody...don't know why... :roll:

There are a lot of factors why Czech Republic didn't do as well as similar 'chick shaking hips' songs.

First of all her live vocals were quite bad, out of pitch and thin thin thin voice. Kalomira's (Greece 2008) voice was just as weak but they did a better job in covering it up by having decent backing vocals. I mean Kalomira never really sang by herself, she always had support.

And the Czech song just didn't have the catchiness that is required to do well (to most people, i know some will disagree). The melody and the lyrics were dull and just didn't stick.

And the actual performance and choreography was forgettable (I don't even remember it).

So I believe there was not one main reason but a lot of different factors causing this song to bomb last year.

I personally don't care for this kind of music (Czech, Greece, Ukraine 2008 or Romania 2009 just a few examples) but even to me the Czech song was the weakest one out of those 4 I just mentioned.

You forgot the most obvious reason: it was my favourite! It's an unwritten rule of ESC that my favourite can never do well.

In my opinion it's still far closer to 'real world' music than anything else in ESC 08, it has hints of both "Say It Right" and "Jai Ho" amongst other things, and the choreography was the most similar to what you'd see on an actual chart/music award show these days.

I think it was really good :D should have qualified! :x

It was a good song, but was completely destroyed on the stage with that cheap hip-hop version and her weak vocals.
It could've qualified with the first version which was so sweet :(

Yeah, at first it seemed nice, though a bit forgettable and actual perfomance was LOL! The dresses, the DJ, the moves... Everything screamed cheap American pop/R 'n B video... :lol: Her singing really didn't help and she could've at least covered her ears. The hairstyle didn't really help, either. The song is really catchy after more listening, though. ;)

Great song, I was so sad when it failed to pass semi-final :(

16th June 2011, 09:59
it was a nice song,and stage performance,though not that strong,but catchy,especially with Twiins on stage :)
And because this and the 2009 are the only songs I know from Czeh R. from esc,I love this more :)

More than 4 years since Tereza's failure in ESC. She hasn't stopped doing music (unfortunately, but at least she doesn't sing in English anymore), so if there is anyone interested - here are some of her songs that she released after Eurovision:

Tereza Kerndlová - Schody z nebe


Tereza Kerndlová & Richard Müller - Klid, mír a pokora


And her latest single, Tepe srdce mý

What a mess! It was..... okay, i guess, kind of, but it's just the kind of number that's doomed not to really make any impression in the ESC, and it seems like they were trying to do too many things at once, both in the music and on stage.

29th May 2013, 19:24
Too bad that it failed to qualify. She's hot!

10th August 2013, 15:57
So, Tereza Kerndlová is now Tereza Mayer Kerndlová :D She got married to René Mayer yesterday at a secret wedding in Las Vegas. Grats! :mrgreen:

This song was awful. I'm not going to try and doubt that. But I have full confidence that if you released it in the U.S. but replaced "Tereza Kerndlová" with "Rihanna" or "Beyoncé" or "Carly Rae Jepsen" or even "Katy Perry," critics and the public would be falling over themselves to call it the greatest artistic achievement of our time, which pisses me off to no end.
