Switzerland
Mélanie René - Time To Shine







So the online process in the Switzerland national selection that has happened for several years now has begun, and the latest X Factor UK contestant to take part following the likes of Maria Lawson and Same Difference is Kitty Brucknell with the song 'Yearning'. You can listen to it here!

I really like it! And we know Kitty would perform it amazingly, it's a shame there's no chance of her getting anywhere near the national final you would think.

Another song that has been uploaded to the online selection is 'Candy' by former Pussycat Doll Jessica Sutta! ohmy.gif Her song can be heard here on the Swiss Eurovision upload site.

Confusingly, Jessica has denied such rumours on Twitter - but as far as we can see, her song is on that Eurovision site just as Kitty's and many others are! Very confusing - I would assume it's a mistake but you never know.

My favourites are Timebelle, a fabulous pop-rock song with saxophone (!) that is reminiscent of Mandinga with its instrumentation (and their Romanian roots). It has over 300,000 YouTube views, none of the others have anything much higher than 10,000 and is deemed to be the favourite alongside Tiziana.

With that running order draw I'm sensing a Tiziana victory, unless Andy McSean gets the "only male artist effect" that Italy got in JESC! laugh.gif I really hope Timebelle can somehow succeed, a fantastic pop song and would go straight to the top of my rankings and would more than likely be in my top 5 by the end of the national final season.

Out of those I'd say my favourites were Tiziana and Mélanie René. Timebelle were OK too, I'd say the Swiss will most likely pick Tiziana or Andy McSean.

Don't think I'll be watching tonight though.

I've just been watching the screen while watching The Voice. Reading the various forums, I get the sense that Timebelle are out of the running sad.gif thanks to that running order slot. Mélanie was apparently impressive but I feel like we could end up with an Andy McSean victory which would surely guarantee Switzerland a stay in the semis.

Mélanie was very impressive singing 'Chandelier' just then.

I was quite impressed by Timebelle actually! Though I do think Andy is gonna win, Mélanie would be my personal pick.

I'm assuming the lines will close after this commercial break, be counted during Conchita's performance and then revealed probably from about 9ish our time. Looking at last year, there's no sign of any scoreboard or anything so the results will only take a minute or two if they do the same this year.

Deborah Bough looks so similar to Karen Harding, and the fact that they both performed at #1 out of 6 in their respective national finals is even more coincidental!

I'm glad it wasn't Andy! Just watching the reprise now and she's sounding good, she definitely had the most positive response across the web tonight. Another moody pop song though to join the two Warriors! laugh.gif

I'll have to check out the music video again soon.

Not a fan of this on first listen, feels very very dreary.

Ooh yes Melanie! I'm really liking the dark/atmospheric vibe of this one. Probably my fave/second fave so far
