The open voting phase of the Swiss Web-Preselection for the National Final started this week and the two Albanian acts in this round are doing more than well:
First there is 16 years old Ilira and the swiss band The Colours. The song gets a nice resonance by not only Albanians, but also the Swiss in Switzerland. The radio channel DRS3, which had the right to pick 10 of the competing songs for an own selection, of which 3 qualify for the finals, picked the song "Home" into that selection. At the moment Ilira and The Colours own the second place, which would result in a direct qualification for the grand National Final on 11th December.
Then there is Genta, who spoke out to Telegrafi.com. According to her, she is amongst the Top 10 in the Web Selection of the channel SF and has qualified for the final. With the song "This is my night" she hopes to represent Switzerland in Düsseldorf and at the same time simplify a debut of Kosovo in the ESC with her participation for Switzerland.
Not long now until we see whether both managed to qualify for the National Final.
