Tonight Switzerland makes its decision for Eurovision 2017 in Die Entscheidungsshow. Six acts — all female led — are looking to sing in Kyiv in May. We asked you who your favourite was. After counting 1,638 votes, we can now reveal Timebelle is the overwhelming favourite to represent Switzerland with “Apollo”!
The band were previously favourites to represent Switzerland in 2015, but narrowly missed out to Melanie Rene.
They return as a three-piece group this time, led by Romanian-born singer Miruna Manescu. Y’all seem to think it will be second time lucky for them.
They received over half of all votes cast, with 52% of the total — or 856 votes.
Second place in our poll went to Ginta Biku, with her English-French song “Cet Air Là”. Ginta promises to put on one of the most inventive stage shows we’ve ever seen at a national final. She’s heavily interested in mixing AR and VR technology with music. Could she snatch the crown away with her stage show? Ginta received around 18% of the vote, with 232 votes cast in her name.
Trailing in third place with 10% of the vote is Freschta, with her track “Gold”. Whilst previously described as perhaps a bit too tame, the song was recently revamped ahead of the final. With new instrumentation on the track, will this be enough to lift her higher?
