So far the best song, but why is the name of the band Heilsarmee?  :o Has it something to do with Nazi ideology?   :ohmy:

Don't worry, Niko, Heilsarmee is "Frälsningsarmén" in Swedish or "Salvation Army" in English. Also in Dutch it's called "Leger des Heils". It has nothing to do with Nazi ideology.
The Salvation Army  is a Christian denomination and international movement known for its charity shops and other charity work (thank you Wikipedia).

“The song “You and I” meets the requirements of the EBU. Nevertheless, it is clear from the perspective of the EBU that a performance in Malmö will only be possible if the band does not appear in the official uniform of the Salvation Army. In addition, the song may not be entered under the name of ‘Salvation Army’. The EBU Reference Group will review whether these changes were implemented in January.

I know more than perfectly well, what Salvation Army is.  ;) I respect it very much, because it takes care of people, whom other churches or Christian sects wouldn't touch even with a long stick.

I expected more from Switzerland, after they had really good songs in the recent years. i'm not so crazy about it, but don't hate it.
and is it only me or at some point, the song resembles me "Hall om mig" from Nanne Grönvall?  ???

I think one thing is definite:

From Wikipedia:
Quote
The members of the band have a major age difference as the oldest member—bassist Emil Ramsauer—is 95 (born 1918), and their youngest member—singer Sarah Breiter—is 22 (born 1991).

No one will ever break the record of the oldest artist ever to appear on the ESC stage! unless Lys Assia will give a try in 2020! :rofl:
