by Juha Repo 7

The Swiss Television SF (Schweizer Fernsehen) has now revealed the four songs that will complete the line-up for the December final in Kreuzingen. Remarkably the first ever Swiss winner Lys Assia did not make it to the final this time. In the final are the band formed of the Swiss Salvation Army as well as Spanish Melissa, who has previously already tried her luck to represent her other home country.

The four acts selected from the German part of Switzerland are:

  • Anthony BigheadDo the monkey
  • HeilsarmeeYou and me
  • Jesse RitchForever & a day
  • MelissaThe point of no return

Jesse Ritch is known from the German edition of Pop Idol, Deutschland sucht ein Superstar and Anthony Bighead is known as a children’s TV presenter. Heilsarmee has members from 20 to 94 years of age and they all are also part of the Salvation Army. Melissa lives in Alicante, but has a dual citizenship in Switzerland as well.
