In just over 24 hours we will finally know who will represent Switzerland at Eurovision 2015 in Austria. After months of online voting and expert checks, the Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow process comes to a conclusion on Saturday night at 20:10 CET. We’ll publish a post with all the viewing links soon. But first, we need to determine the contenders.
For almost two months we’ve been asking y’all to vote for your favourites in our poll. After counting 1,957 votes, we can now reveal the act you want to represent the Swiss in Vienna. Topping the poll in a landslide of 913 votes, Timebelle and “Singing About Love” is clearly the people’s choice. Fusing together jazz, country and rock, their sound harkens back to best of Romania’s Mandinga and Germany’s Elaiza. This national selection looks like theirs to lose.
Timebelle “Singing About Love”
The only other act to receive a decent percentage of the vote was Mélanie René, with 477 readers voting for her entry, “Time To Shine”.
