Love Eurovision Advent Calendar: 10th – Switzerland decides tonight

Tonight the first entry for Eurovision 2012 will be chosen as Switzerland’s Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow takes place. Unfortunately the UK’s X Factor duo Same Difference and American act Ultra Nate didn’t make the final but 14 other acts did:

Patric Scott feat. Fabienne Louves – Real love
Emel – She
Chiara Dubey – Anima nuova
Guillermo Sorya – Baby baby baby
Macy – Shining
Sosofluo – Quand je ferme les yeux
Atomic Angels – Black Symphony
Ivo – Peace & freedom
Ze Flying Zézettes Orchestra – L’autre
Raphael Jeger – The song in my head
I Quattro – Fragile
Sinplus – Unbreakable
Lys Assia – C’était ma vie
Katherine St-Laurent – Wrong to let you go

The hot favourite to win is Lys Assia, who won the first ever Eurovision Song Contest in 1956.

If she wins tonight she will go on to represent Switzerland for the 4th time in Baku next year. It’s a rather old-fashioned song but the message behind the tile ‘C’etait Ma Vie’ (It Was My Life) combined with her Eurovision royalty status should ensure Switzerland have their best chance of qualifying in years. That said, returning winners haven’t fared too well in recent years – just look at Dana International and Niamh Kavanagh.
