Genta Ismajli's song for the Swiss Eurovision-selection, This is my night, failed to qualify for the final. According to Genta herself, the reason for this is that has been cheating in the online voting. Genta says she has a big fan base, specially in Switzerland, and her song has been relatively popular on YouTube. Combined with much promotion of her entry, this seems to be the reason for the Kosovo-Albanian singers disappointment.
7 of the 12 finalists in the upcomming Swiss national final were picked out through an online selection, consisting of 327 songs. Ilira and the Colors will perform as number 10 in the final. The final will be held December 11th, and the winner will be decided by a 100% televote.
Genta Ismajli has expressed a big wish to take part in Eurovision, so we might get to see Genta Ismajli back in an ESC selection in the future again soon.
