I'm optimistic that the Swiss will find that winning formula again, so their selection process this year (closed platform, no regional quotas, no cover song round, etc.) was a good first step. I mean, Timebelle was 4 points shy of qualifying!
But seriously, can't they just send Sebalter again?
With a performance more similar to te NF or to the music video I am sure Switzerland would have qualified! The classy feeling of the song was really lost in Kyiv
The overall result is the most viable proof that the new rules and the changes, which have been introduced in the "Entscheidungsshow", are already providing their best result since 2014. They nearly made it through, thus they shouldn't even be disappointed with this placement and this scoring, as it could've been waaaay worse than that.
They should only wait for a much better improvement, which hasn't occured yet. I'm quite confident about that.
They need better staging. 2017 would have qualified with better staging and I'm sure 2016 wouldnt have been last in the semi if it had better staging too. I can't believe no one in the whole Swiss delegation had the guts to tell Rykka how ridiculous she looked rocking back and forth like that.
