Great news for Swiss Eurovision Artist Luca Hänni, as his entry "She Got Me" has achieved the highest pre contest debut place in the Swiss chart since 2007, when the Legendary DJ BoBo scored a big hit with "Vampires Are Alive".
"She Got Me" has debuted at an impressive 11th place on the Schweizer Hitparade, and only a week and a half after it was released! While Sebalter did manage number 6 in the Charts, with his "Hunter Of Stars", it only made its debut the week of the contest in 2014. Mr Hänni has managed to sneak into the Swiss charts a whole two months before the contest!
Switzerland is currently siting pretty as the 4th favourite to take home the trophy in Tel Aviv, a first for Switzerland. The last time they were favoured so highly by the bookmakers was in 2007. Could this be due to the pure radio friendly style of the song perhaps?
Switzerland are known for being a bit 'alternative' when it comes to their choice in Eurovision entry so perhaps that explains the sudden rush of hype this year. If you ask this humble scribe, I think Luca and the Swiss Team deserve all the praise in the world!
What's your thoughts on Luca's song? Will he reverse the bad luck Switzerland has been having in the Semi Finals? Will you be 'Dirty Dancing' to the Swiss Song in Tel Aviv?
