Dennis Reviews Anita’s 21st Century Favourite
Kamil Mikulčík and Nela Pocisková – Let’ tmou | 18th place, 8 points (Semi-Final)
I’m a big Eurovision fan and I have seen the 2009 contest obviously. But I have to admit I have to look up this entry to remember how it went, I only remembered there was a lot of shouting and I never listened to it again. (…) Ok, after seeing it again 11 years later I still think Slovakia overdid it a bit here. So much vocal violence in three minutes, with not much line in it. It is a messy composition. I should like this, the orchestration is lovely, but somehow it doesn’t hit me emotionally. But, since Slovakia doesn’t have a lot of entries to pick from, I can see why this song is the best of the bunch for Anita. It had potential to do better than how it did in Moscow.
Brandon Reviews Joshua’s 21st Century Favourite
Kristína Peláková – Horehronie | 16th place, 24 points (Semi-Final)
This song should’ve done so much better than it ended up doing. I truly believe this would end up on top ten. Had such great ethnic vibes and it felt like a fairytale on-stage. Kristina looked gorgeous and had a voice that resonated mystery. Please come back Slovakia, perhaps let Kristina have her redemption!
