Ilira Gashi, the only participant in the Swiss NF with Albanian roots managed to score in the top 3 with 13,05% of all votes (1.Anna Rossinelli 23,93% ; 2. Bernarda Brunovic 13,36%). Tonight Switzerland held the first National Final of the ESC season 2011. For the last seven years it was Albania chosing both its representative and song for the Eurovision Song Ccontest. With Ilira winning this NF, it would have been the 8th year in a row an Albanian was chosen to participate in the ESC (together with the song).
Ilira can be proud of the third place and we're sure to see her back in NF again in the next years. She already told us (See the full interview with Ilira Gashi here).
Below you can see tonight's performance of Ilira and the Colours at the Swiss National Final.
