Martina is wearing a metallic bronze jumpsuit. It is quite low-cut, so she wears a black top underneath. As the light catches the jumpsuit, it reflects various shades of green, orange and red. This outfit is a stark contrast to the simple dress she wore in her preview video.
Martina finished in ninth position in day 2 of ESCToday’s Daily Press Poll 2017, receiving a total of 6 points from 35 voting press representatives

It’s time for Martina’s meet & greet at the IEC! Here, Martina speaks of her thoughts and feelings about participating at the contest:
When you rehearse in the studio you can only imagine how it will be like on the big stage, and now I need a little time to get used to it.
I have to learn how to get eye contact with the camera because it’s all new for me.
Martina went on to discuss the current attitude from the Czech public regarding Eurovision:
Everything improved after we qualified to the final, it’s not so big but more people know about the contest, from media to fans.
When asked about her plans after the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Martina, a trained pianist, replied:
I would be happy to continue doing music and planning on writing my first album with my sister.
Martina seems very happy and excited to be in Kyiv and the IEC as it’s her first time competing and appearing in such a large event.
It’s another very artistic performance and that why it gets high ratings from us. Martina begins the performance sitting on the edge of the stage and then walking around it throughout the song. The leading colours are pink and yellow and the backdrop partially features drawings of eyes and parts of the people from the videoclip of My turn.
It is unlikely that the song will appeal to the televoters and the juries might prefer to vote to other songs of the same style (as Portugal)
