They’re the Swiss/Romanian trio hoping to take Switzerland back to the Eurovision grand final. And on Saturday Timebelle were among the 14 performing acts at part one of the Wiwi Jam 2017.
As well as giving us a rendition of their entry for Kyiv “Apollo”, the group also debuted a Eurovision 2017 mashup set to the sound of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” .

Timebelle weren’t the only ones drawing inspiration from the English singer-songwriter. The UK’s Lucie Jones and Spain’s Manel Navarro also gave their own unique take of “Shape Of You” at the Wiwi Jam.

The Wiwi Jam part two (May 10)
On Wednesday May 10 a dozen more will turn up and turn out for another night of non-stop Eurovision music from 23:00 until late.
By the night some of these acts will have been eliminated from Semi-Final 1. Others will be headed to the grand final. Regardless, they’ll be ready to sing it out in front of a packed EuroClub.
Thus far we’ve confirmed 10 acts — with a few potential surprises in the pipeline.
The artists include: Albania’s Lindita Halimi, Australia’s Isaiah Firebrace, Azerbaijan’s Dihaj, Czech Republic’s Martina Barta, France’s Alma, Greece’s Demy, Latvia’s Triana Park, Montenegro’s Slavko Kalezic, Poland’s Kasia Mos and Sweden’s Robin Bengtsson.
OGAE International, our partners for the evening, will supply the DJ. That means non-stop Eurovision music all night long. After all: this ain’t a nightclub — it’s EuroClub!
