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.
