Armed with a violin and some major whistling skills, Sebalter has won Die Entscheidungsshow, the Swiss national selection for Eurovision 2014!
His song “Hunter of Stars” is a toe-tapping, honkey tonk slam dunk. Apparently it was inspired by a roadtrip through America. Given the banjo sounds, hand-clapping and country-rodeo vibe, we’re going to guess he visited the American South at some point. Yee haw, y’all!
The Wiwi Jury is particularly pleased that he won. It means we actually made an accurate prediction! Whew.
1. Sebalter — Hunter of Stars
2. Yasmina Hunzinger — I Still Believe

During the show Sebalter also performed a cover of Avicii’s “Wake Me Up”. Here he is in a pre-show recording playing it on his fiddle. If the video of his performance from the national final appears, we’ll post it below.
Seb has a seriously expressive face.
What do you think? Are you pleased Sebalter won in Switzerland? Is this your favourite Eurovision song so far?
