Overall Impression

What a journey it has been for Vesna, Czechia’s pride at Eurovision 2023!

From the moment these women stepped onto the stage, it was clear that they shared an extraordinary chemistry, a bond that transcended the footlights and reached right into the audience’s hearts.

Their collective energy was a force to be reckoned with, igniting the stage with a passion and vitality that was nothing short of infectious.

From the very first note, “My Sister’s Crown” weaves a spellbinding narrative set against the backdrop of Czech folklore, with Vesna as our modern-day muses.

At first glance, the choice to swap their eclectic and stylized music video costumes for matching pink uniforms might have seemed like an understated move.

But as the performance unfolded, this harmony grew on me, symbolizing unity and the shared spirit of their musical journey. The pink uniforms became a statement, a visual echo of their synchronized synergy and artistic solidarity.

And let’s talk about their triumph!

Scoring 10th place in the grand final was a testament to Vesna’s dedication and hard work, particularly after some earlier performances that left us wondering what magic they were holding back.

But rise to the occasion they did, delivering a performance that not only showcased their polished artistry but also reflected the countless hours of preparation behind the scenes.

There’s no doubt that Vesna put in the work required to dazzle us all, and their top-ten finish was a well-deserved accolade for a group that truly knows how to put on a spectacular show!

Bravo, Vesna! Your Eurovision journey was a true inspiration!

Vesna – My Sister’s Crown – Lyrics (Original)

Moje sestra do kouta nepůjde
Ani tebe poslouchat nebude
Moje sestra v srdci je divoká
Copy zaplést, nikdy si nenechá
Moje sestra do kouta nepůjde
Ani tebe poslouchat nebude

My sister’s crown
Don’t take it down
Don’t take it down
Nobody has the right to do it

She’s beautiful
And capable
She is her own queen
And she will prove it

You can take your hands back
No one wants more boys dead
We’re not your dolls
We’re not your dolls

Life’s not a moneybag
Blood’s on your God’s head
You can’t steal our souls
You can’t steal our souls

Хоп троп момите не са нон-стоп на разположение
Ти просто че сме сестри до край знай!

You can take your hands back
No one wants more boys dead

Vesna – My Sister’s Crown – Lyrics (English)

My sister won’t stand in the corner
Nor will she listen to you
My sister, wild at heart
Will never let you tie her down
My sister won’t stand in the corner
Nor will she listen to you

My sister’s crown
Don’t take it down
Don’t take it down
Nobody has the right to do it

She’s beautiful

She is her own Queen
And she will prove it

You can take your hands back
No one wants more boys dead
We’re not your dolls
We’re not your dolls

Brave and the only one
The crown is yours

My beautiful sister
You are so strong
Brave and the only one
The crown is yours

Give me your hand don’t be afraid
Come swim with your sisters
There’s no place for hate in our sea

Take heed
Don’t be sad
Hop trop, These girls ain’t here for you nonstop
Remember, we’re sisters till the end!

You can take your hands back
No one wants more boys dead
We’re not your dolls
We’re not your dolls

Life’s not a moneybag
Blood’s on your God’s head
You can’t steal our souls
You can’t steal our souls

My beautiful sister,
You are so strong,
Brave and the only one.
