Pre-Contest Vote 2014: Switzerland

Well hello there! Welcome to another summary article in ESC Views’ Pre-Contest Vote 2014! If you haven’t heard about it and how this entire system will work, feel free to click this fabulous link to take you to the ‘Launch Page’ of the competition. As we manage to compile more and more of these articles, they will be added to the Launch Page, so you can freely hop between all competing 37 entries! Right, shall we get onto the next country?


Next up in our Pre-Contest is Switzerland!
Next up in our Pre-Contest is Switzerland!

This is how we’re running this series of articles in which we’re going to cover all 37 entries for this year:

  • We’re going to take on these articles in the running order for 2014 (Armenia is first, Latvia is second etc). We’ll do two articles a day.
  • We’ll refer back to the Song Presentation or NF Review of the song. We’ll provide you with the video so you can have a listen (if you haven’t managed to listen to it yet…which is highly unlikely!)
  • We’ll also give you a few words from both of us while giving the song a score out of 12.
  • Finally, there’ll be a poll below for you guys to vote and give us your points on the song!

Got it? 🙂

If you’ve clicked onto our Launch Page, you’ll see all the countries we’ve managed to plough through and now it’s time for Switzerland. After a rather weak Swiss National Final, Switzerland chose Sebastiano Paù-Lessi, also known as Sebalter. At Eurovision, he’ll sing his country-folk song “Hunter Of Stars”, which has been seen by a few bookmakers as a possible dark horse for this year, but we’ll just have to see! If you haven’t heard “Hunter of Stars” as of yet, have a listen below!

Our opinions:

Rory – I’m not sure why so many people don’t like this song – Sebalter’s voice is actually really good and the fact that “Hunter Of Stars” is so different from what else in the show, is what I think will make it stand out like a sore thumb in Denmark. Best of luck Switzerland! Score: 8 points out of 12.

James -I genuinely don’t know what to think about this one. I do like it, although it’s not the kind of thing I would choose to listen to often. In terms of how it may do at ESC, it all depends on the performance – if he looks as slick as he does in the video then it should be guaranteed a place in the final! Score: 5 points of 12.

So now that you know what we think of the Swiss song, what do you think of it? Tell us by voting in the poll!

Did you vote? Well by the end of this series, we’ll know how many of you fans love/like/hate Switzerland’s song! However, stay tuned to ESC Views today, as James will be taking on Greece!

If you’d like to share your opinions on Switzerland’s song, please feel free to comment below or vote in the poll!
