The Swiss national selection show Die Entscheidungsshow will return for a 2018 edition. However the show has been revamped to put more a focus on getting the right song, rather than selecting an artist to sing it.
On the Swiss nation selection show Esc 2017-Die Entscheidungsshow, one of the fan favourites from recent years, Sebalter returned to perform his new single ‘Weeping Willow’. You can listen to the song below!
Earlier this evening the six Swiss hopefuls took to the stage to perform their songs in their bid to represent their country at Eurovision 2017. Only one act could be successful and that honour went to Timebelle. They will represent Switzerland with their song ‘Apollo’ in Kiev in May.
Earlier this week we ranked the six songs in the running for the Swiss national final which will take place tomorrow evening. Our favourite was easily Timebelle’s song ‘Apollo’. We asked you to share your opinion and it would seem that you agreed.
