We’ve known the six finalists in Switzerland’s Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow 2015 for almost a month now, and it’s becoming very clear who your favourites are. As at 21:00 GMT on 5 January, 970 votes had been cast, and it seems y’all are in the mood to sing about love.
Timebelle – “Singing About Love”
Timebelle are the only group in this year’s competition, and so far they’re the only ones gaining any real momentum in our poll. “Singing About Love” is a catchy feel-good song, and it’s clearly wormed its way into your memories. With 422 votes, the band have received 44% of all votes cast, and look to be the fan favourites to represent Switzerland at Eurovision 2015. Melanie René sits in second place with “Time To Shine”, proving that there are at least 309 people who have yet to succumb to “Shine” fatigue. Tiziana and Licia Chery are battling it out for third place, with 79 and 71 votes respectively. Deborah Bough’s 54 votes take her back to five (not 23), while Andy McSean occupies the sixth and final spot, earning a measly 35 votes. Being the sole male in the contest is obviously not a strong enough USP – at least in the eyes of wiwibloggs readers.

Bu having said that, I won’t jump the gun this year. Switzerland could end up surpassing our expectations once again in Vienna.
I think Timebelle would be the most logical choice. But I don’t see any of the artists or singers living up to SEBalter last year. It will be like Takasa all over again I think. 🙁
They kind of got rid of all the good songs like Destiny and Yearning and kept the songs that are like “meh”.
I don’t like any of our neighbours entries! But still good luck to our neighbours!
Do the person saying “Timebelle is popular in USA!!!” that’s almost laughable and it’s most certainly not true. Me thinks there are some rabid fans spamming the comments section and rigging the voting.
I want Arbresha back in the competition. I think Same Stars would have done well in Vienna. I love that song. The remaining six songs are so mundane.
Shut up! Timebelle is clearly the best. Game over.
Methinks it will be between RTS qualifiers Licia Chery and Mélanie René. Of the 6 that made it to the final round, these were the only two I picked who made it through.
Switzerland will be my #1 so far if they’d send Timebelle. Fun song with a good vibe. I really love it 🙂
I figured this song would get #1, but I’m sure not rooting for it… :/ The lead singer has great live vocals, but the song is still generic.
Licia and Deborah deserve well more votes.
@Maria: Being from the USA myself, I have to say I don’t know where you’re getting this idea from…
I consider Licia Chery a possible Eurovision winner if she wins the selection.
Timebelle’s “Singing about love” is also popular in Indonesia! I listened it several times in my radio! Hope they win Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow 2015!
I don’t care about Switzerland this year. I was shocked when Elias ft. Zero In On didn’t qualify with Your Perfume. The song had a quality,emotion and beautiful lyrics,everything. It kinda reminds of Imagine Dragons’ style which is a big plus. I’m literally so sad :((( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Uv7pO9IJcc
I think Melanie has the best shot to do well, and besides, RTS has yet to send a representative via this NF format (it’s been 2 SRF and 2 RSI thus far)
Timebelle “Singing About Love” became already popular in USA!!!Switzerland would do BINGO with this guys!
I really want switzerland to send Melanie. I love the song but i do feel Timebelle would do better.
I think “Singing about Love” could do well in Vienna, with some tweaking. The chorus just doesn’t feel like it fits with the rest of the song.
I just hope Switzerland sends something above average this year.
