Switzerland are really hoping to reverse its fortunes this year after they failed to qualify for the Eurovision Grand Final for the last three years. The landlocked country had made headlines recently as it held a writing camp to flush out the best writers that the small nation has. The Entscheidungs Show grand final was held in the studios of Swiss Broadcaster SRF in Zurich. The overall winner ??? was decided by a 50% public televote, and 50% international jury that consisted Albania, Armenia, France, Germany, Iceland, Israel and Italy vote.
Zibbz are a brother and sister duo, Corrine and Stee Gfeller, who of Swiss descent live and work in Los Angeles as well as in Switzerland, they have been playing and working together as a duo since 2011 and sigt their Eurovision idols as The Common Linnets, could they strike a similar result to them in 2014?
