The Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — continues to rate and review the 41 competing entries of Eurovision 2019. Next we say hello to Switzerland, where Luca Hänni has “She Got Me”. But do we have him? Read on to find out!
Luca Hänni – “She Got Me”
“She Got Me” reviews
Oliver: She got me? He got me is much more appropriate in this case; Luca has pulled one of the best produced songs out of his hat and won us all over. Oozing charisma, Luca is able to hold your attention for the entirety of the song and stand at the centre of all of it without seeming overwhelmed. There is an undeniable international quality about this song, allowing it to appeal to the masses all across Europe — a factor which should definitely help it with both the televoters and the jury. Luca is a seasoned performer with a plethora of talents but in all honesty this song is a winner as a standalone studio cut for me.
Lukas: Each year I always like Switzerland’s songs but their results are quite disappointing. However this year things are going to change because finally Switzerland is bringing the heat with this one. “She Got Me” is as hot as Luca’s looks and both the song and the singer just match so well. The song is super catchy and after only one listen you can remember it instantly. It makes you want to dance and just makes you feel good, which is what I want from the Eurovision entries.
Bernardo: “She Got Me” is, hands down, the bop of the year. While several attempted to be the lucky ones, only one can win and if last year a woman took the crown (hey, Eleni), 2019 is Luca’s year. A brilliantly produced track combined with Luca’s sassy moves and sex appeal. One must be honest: sex sells and we buy it. But that’s irrelevant when you have a competent performer that knows how to sing and dance while making you joyful enough to get up and dance. It’s generic but you don’t care. Let’s do this!
Chris: Oh, Switzerland. At least when they failed over the last half a decade, they were memorable. Unfortunately, “She Got Me” – whilst it’s a very, very good track – feels like something you’ll forget about within a couple of months. A Eurovision winner needs its own identity, and it doesn’t feel like the track really has one (bar, perhaps, “slightly male Fuego”). Whether Luca will bring more of that on stage remains to be seen.
Tobias: When you mix “Fuego” with “Despacito” you get “She Got Me”. I can see this being played all summer long across Europe. We have found the new summer hit! I do love this song and it has a big chance of ending up in the top three. But it will all come down to the live performance. That will determine whether he’ll be a serious contender for victory in Tel Aviv or if it will flop on the stage and remain only a radio hit. The live performance and the staging will have to tell us. But one thing for sure is, Switzerland is fighting for the victory!
Renske: Luca Hänni is perhaps the man the small country needs to qualify once again, but the song is not scoring many originality points. It looks like a case of producers to create a song that combines all those elements that did well in previous Eurovision. “She Got Me” combines summer sounds, a handsome male singer, dance routines and EDM drops. Perhaps tactical and definitely fun, but not original.

I’m so happy that i’m not the only one who doesn’t like this. This is so Despacito 2.0. Nothing new at all. Ik would be extremely disappointed if this should win. But it will do well..
This is a great track for ballroom dancers dance to. Yeah, that’s it.
I agree with Deban, this song brings nothing new to Eurovision, I don’t understand all this hype about it. Just a good song to dance, and his vocals is not that great. But good luck anyway!
Curiously this song reminds me of a real situation that happened to me once, a very long time ago. But I would have never thought to turn it into a song. Anyhow, congratulations to the team that worked on this entry. Luca comes across to me as a slightly dirtier Olly Murs, which apart from being incredibly sexy is also reflective of this era. The song is actually not one of my favourites; I prefer Malta’s “Chameleon” and Cyprus’ “Replay” to this one. But Luca will sell it well.
I’m waiting for all the awkward moments happening with this entry.
Sorry but giving IT a 1 is Just disrespectfull to the fullest. It not worser then a Georgia/ San Marino OR whatever.
Georgia is original, not plastic pop. San Marino is super positive. Switzerland is just “look at me, how cool I am”. Calm yourself, you are not as sexy as you think. Nobody is.
Although I agree that giving it a 1 is disrespectful, it is also disrespectful that you treat it as an absolute fact that Georgia/San Marino are worse. I prefer both of them to Switzerland, to be fair.
This song falls flat after about 90 seconds… it starts out well but then it needs something, maybe a little vocal gymnastics, to keep the attention. Unfortunately Luca isn’t a very good singer so the song just keeps chugging along in that same limited vocal range. It’s catchy, but a little boring.
I don’t usually say a song is a bop, but this is really a bop. I mean, you are losing your sh*t with “Replay” and lost it with “Fuego” and this song is far better and more international. Is it a materpiece? No. I wouldn’t consider “Despacito” a masterpiece either, but there it is. So, “She Got Me” is a party song, uplifting and very enjoyable. It is excellent for what it was created: entertain. Does it follow the electro-latino trend? Yes. Does it bring something new? No at all. But let’s be honest, it is the kind of song… Read more »
tbh Eurovision is not a place to bring a masterpiece lol
I agree with Deban. I find this song nothing special. Yes, its good and fun, but i don’t understand why people think it could win. It’s as predictable as it can get.
Netta won with just a bad song and Fuego came second. This is like them. I don’t understand why some people are surprised with the hype. It’s a catchy party song and the guy’s got moves and he is cute and all. He’s got the eurovision package to win.
Netta’s song was at least something different. Was it a winning song? No. Was Fuego good enough to come 2nd? No. And this shouldn’t come second either. It’s a top 10 entry, not a winner
Stop calling every above average pop song a “bop” or I will flip out afdsdssd it doesn’t mean anything anymore because everything is always a bop.
for me this one is a big flop of this esc
Bit overrated but a good solid song.
im sorry but… it’s annoying guys 🙁 I cringe and feel ankward when I listen him every damn time.. also he is so overrated by fans and odds
4/10 for me
It sounds way too much like Despacito in the pre-chorus for me :/
And too much like fuego in the chorus. Lol
Lovr this song. 9/10
I don’t like it but it has a cool vibe. I’ll put it below Iceland 6/10
My prediction is that she goes low, he goes high, pun intended. Result, an explosion of ….confetti.
It was my 2nd place, but I have to admit that it looses impact after listening to often. For the absolute dance banger, there is something missing. The “fight SUI-MLT-CYP” goes clearly to Malta. On the other hand, Greece was my 16th in my first top and now I listen to it everyday and want Katerine to win (alongside with my #1 Australia ofc). Things change fast, don’t they? 😀
Two people gave it a 1-10!?!?
How? The song is amazing?
It’s their opinion. Some will say it’s the greatest Swiss entry ever, others will say it’s worse than Finland 2015 or Euro Neuro. You can’t please everyone.
Not really my thing, sorry.
The last time Switzerland won was when it was represented by Celine Dion.
It’s time they won again after more than 30 years.
Absolutely amazing song.
it’s a catchy and well-produced song but so dehumanizing / sexist, how can you stan something like that
Dehumanizing? That’s a bit of a large stretch. Read about sex trafficking, that’s dehumanizing. Sexist? How is it sexist to accept that women can enjoy their sexuality, which is not even the same as sexual intercouse?
“When she go low, she go solo” – Good, fine, let women enjoy their sexuality
“She got me dirty dancin” – Comes off creepy, people being sexual isn’t an invitation to take things further without consent
That might just be me though
Because singing I’m not your toy STUPID Boy was something to stan for last year or the lyrics of fuego. Please!
I used to listen to it a while ago. Now, it is annoying. That’s the lifetime of such songs.
It’s a bop, hands down, no denying it is certainly a bop. And of course this is in my opinion the best Swiss entry since Sebalter and of course will be the first entry from Switzerland to achieve a result as good as, if not better than Sebalter. However, I do worry about the live performance, can Luca sing and dance as good as the studio version? Or is this entry all fur coat and no knickers? At the minute, Switzerland is my number 5. However it may change depending on rehearsals and performance in the semi. It will qualify… Read more »
This is a tough one, because I actually enjoy hearing this song and dancing and singing along. But… that doesn’t mean I believe it deserves much praise. I like it more than “Fuego” last year, but that song wasn’t even in my top 10 and I was actually quite shocked (and even a bit embarrased) when “Fuego” came second. I simply like it more because I prefer it’s melody and instrumentation, which I find more infectious; not because the lyrics are better, because when it comes to that, both songs are equally bad. In any case, I have to give… Read more »
There is so much salt in these comments. This is one of my favorites this year and I am so happy that Switzerland is finally sending a song with real chances to reach Top 10, even Top 5 with miss Baptiste alongside him. I get that this may be a generic copy of Fuego, but it’s catchy as hell and he can dance. Just enjoy the fun and lightness this song provides and stop complaining about everything.
So those who don’t like the song are expected to pretend they do, or what? What if some people don’t like catchy, dance songs, ever thought about that?
Songs much better than this I listen in the latín music radio I have in home.not impress for this .not in my top 10.but good luck
This isn’t in my top 10 but I do still really like it it’s SO catchy and will do great! Also if Luca dances on the ESC that’s just going to make this song even better! 8/10
People hear Tamta: COOOOPY, Fuego 2.0, cheap foureira.
Switzerland: He is hot, 10/10, such a fresh song from the country…
That is not really true. “She got me” has been compared with “Fuego” over a million times too
Both songs are clearly influenced by Fuego in a different way. Replay has the same structure, while She Got Me uses the same genre and instruments. Think of it like Fuego is the golden pyramid, Replay is the silver pyramid and She Got Me is the golden cube.
It’s not as fresh as what it needs to be. I was walking by a busker on the street who I thought was playing “She Got Me”. When he got to the chorus, I realized he was singing “Despacito”. But I will say Luka’s/Laura’s chorus is catchy as hell especially with the mizrahi sounds. Good luck from Texas.
*song is a pop song* everyone: this is a clear Fuego/ Despacito copy: it has no soul and is made of plastic. 10/10 for me thank you Switzerland get your revenge for Timebelle and Zibbz.
I really wanted Zibbz to qualify last year. I don’t understand what happened.
I think zibbz had the misfortune of being placed in the first semi final. If Switzerland was in the second semi-final, it would have had a better chance of qualifying.
It is clearlyvery similar to “Fuego” in its composition.
Have other entries gotten 1s? I can give it 1 for the lyrics, but the rest, an 8? The lyrics are effing awful.
Iceland, Georgia, Montenegro, Latvia, Lithuania also got a 1 but removed from average count anyway.
Switzerland received two 1s so one has been counted. A balance for the overrated 10s on another side.
Aha. Thanks. Interestingly enough, those are six very different songs.
“She got me” is nothing like Despacito.
A harmless and fun number which will do really well if Luca knows how to sing live. Does he? I have only seen and heard the studio version.
I’ve watched his live performance in Amsterdam. He sang bad.
Love this song, 10/10, my fave of the year 🙂 “Generic” from eurofans these days is more like a compliment and shows quality, so thanks!!!For u guys, hit makers like David Guetta, J Balvin, Ricky Martin, Daddy Yankee, JLO etc would be generic 😀 But you’re clearly in minority, so ok;) I wonder, how come u don’t count Replay, Fuego, Better LOve, La La Love etc generic tho? Only girls can sing dance/”generic” songs in Eurovision? Double standards, double standards 🙁
Oh, I do, cheap trashy songs the lot of them.
“La la love” was great.
“La la love” is one of my biggest guilty pleasures of all times
I absolutely love the song! Is it generic? Yes of course, so are most songs. And they are crowd pleasers for a reason. Just enjoy the fun and lightness this song provides and stop complaining about everything that isn‘t somehow avant garde.
SWITZERLAND – It’s one of the favorites to win and in some way, I am glad, because Switzerland has been underrated so many times before. I wish them and their lovely representative all the best. However, this is not one of the songs I think should win or have a top 10 finish based on the song alone. It’s a nice party song and it leaves a lot of opportunities for a cool staging. Luca is charismatic and energetic and I think he can pull it off. Melodically, this is following the trend of Fuego and Despacito in this Latino-based… Read more »
Luca can’t sing and dance in the same time, and when he dances, he looks like that weird guy from Twin Peaks, the one in that room with red curtains.
Why do you say he can’t sing and dance at the same time? I don’t even say he can, as I don’t have enough evidence. Neither do you.
The live in Amsterdam
I can’t understand this blog anymore. You give us old stuff like interviews from Madrid, while in Moscow things are happening. Now that My Heritage is the sponsor, can’t you post something new on this blog?
Is it just me who thinks that some people confuse the Eurovision song contest with Humanitarian message contest?
A good example for a well written song which was essentially about sex is North Macedonian entry of last year.
Oh, I love that song! Probably my top 5 of the year! 🙂
Last year, I also enjoyed both Cyprus and Moldova singing about sex. But the charisma of their performers and the staging was the thing that made me really like it as much. I’ll wait and see what happens with Switzerland and Cyprus this year.
Exactly my thoughts, Colin. Eleni and DoReDos sold their songs perfectly (both had awesome staging, which also helped a lot). Now the ball is in Luca and Tamta’s court. And I’m also still in love with “Lost and Found”. Too bad they never got the staging right.
Norway 2013! Still listening to it from time to time!
Is it just me who thinks that some people confuse the Eurovision song contest with DRAMA QUEEN STAGING contest?
No , I’m not talking about the lyrics at all.Some people negate a song just because it hasn’t got this great message…..
The song nails what it tries to be: a sexy banger that will be deeply enjoyed by bop chasers from all Europe. So, if well performed and staged, it’ll probably do very well in Eurovision. But it’s too artificial for my taste. It keeps following the trend of Despacito’s copycats from the last few years. Also, if you squeeze the lyrics, the only thing you will get is “she’s sexy and got me dirty dancing”. “Fuego” seems Shakespearean in comparison. Eleni seduced me into liking her song. Let’s see what Luca can do. 5/10
Woo… and I thought I was giving this a cold shower with my rating… Honestly, I kind of enjoy it. Sometimes I hum ”dirty dancing” parts. Luca really shines some positivity around him. It’s however, so vastly overrated among the fandom that I thought that any rating under 8 will be considered a sacrilege among general Eurofan population. Ha ha ha. I enjoyed your review. 🙂
Thank you, Colin. 🙂 The rating may seem too harsh, but I hope people don’t get it wrong, it’s an enjoyable entry. It’s good to have things like this on the show and I’ll be happy to see Switzerland back in the final. Plus I’ve danced and sang along to things that are waaaaay worst than this. But it’s a contest and I can see many songs that are better written, more personal and meaningful, take more risks, have more elaborate melodies and are better produced (though the production on this track is pretty good). In my book, bops rely… Read more »
Every year there seems to be one song that is really over with the fans before the contest that I just do not get on any level. For me, this is it for 2019. The good news for Switzerland is that the song that I didn’t get last year ended up winning the whole thing. 😉
Í really dont understand, what people found in that song…
it’s got a catchy beat, it’s danceable. The artist is likeable.
I prefer Azerbaitzan……
I like Azerbaijan too. There is something I like about every single song this year. Not that I like all of them, but “something” about them.
Catchy beat, check.
Copy of Fuego/Despacito (identical in many parts), check.
Awful lyrics, check.
Artist that can’t sing and dance at the same time without sounding amazingly bad but there are thousands of thirsty people that will vote for him just for his looks, check.
Way. Too. Overrated.
Nice inoffensive summer hit, but that’s it. This could give Switzerland the best result in last years, but not a winner.
It is undeniable that this song will definitely be a summer hit. I already see on the beach, drinking cocktails and dancing on the foam is part of this song. Is this song ideal for the winner, I would not say. Top 10, yes but Winner, no, sorry.
I just can’t feel anything while listening to this song. All I hear is a product taken freshly from a production line, made from very expensive plastic.
I’ve supported the Swiss entries since 2013 whether they’ve qualified or not, but I have to say that Luca’s song this year is a big disappointment for me. The music and lyrics leave me cold and flat, there’s no connection for me, and I don’t buy into the massive overhype that some people are making it out to be. Sadly this will likely qualify, however I don’t think victory is in the cards
An uptempo song. Good dance moves. Handsomes singer. Great drop. Memorable chorus to sing along during the performance. Yes, maybe they are right when they say it’s a tactical choice. But don’t they have all elements united for a top result? I mean, it’s Switzerland we are talking about. When it comes to countries like Russia, Sweden, Italy not reaching the top 10 in the final can be considered failure. Given that Luca Hänni represents Switzerland, litterally anyhing better than the last place in the final is to be considered success. And this is what SRF is going for. Maybe… Read more »
The song, of course, is pretty generic, but IMO it’s the best generic, pop song this year and we all know that pop bops are always something we need at Eurovision.
This song is nothing else but so borring generic pop song… always the same please! So easy… it is good listening indeed but come one this entry has nothing special
I have doubts with this one. the studio version yes, it’s cool and fun, but I am afraid it can turn into a cheap number on stage. they really need to nail it live, otherwise I see it becoming the biggest fail this year
I have Czech Republic 2008 vibes for the live.
I like the song , but I have to wonder – in between getting “naughty” and “rowdy” and going “so low”…does “she” ever read a book? Does she have a brain or does she exclusively “let her body talk”?
Is this Laurell Baker? The lady that preach about feminism when she talks about her other “masterpiece” Sister for Germany, or who preach against white privilege when she talks about other “masterpiece” Bigger than us for UK. All right then.
Feminism is about equal rights.
FYI, sex is in the brain. Also, she reads a book per week. Also, she is in charge with her body and can go as low as she “decides” to. Quite a number of men wouldn’t mind it. And women. Also, there is Eurovision choir constest too. Check it out if you mind sexy – although, some people might find choirs sexy. Sexuality goes deep and wide. Heck, it’s ok to be celibate too. There are plenty of asexual people in the world as well. Women can be prime and proper if they want to. And sexy and wild if… Read more »
I agree with you.
