Switzerland 2008 - Paolo Meneguzzi - Era stupendo
« on: November 22, 2007, 11:38:56 AM »

It is expected, but not yet 100% confirmed, that the Swiss will once again go for an internal selection process.  They are accepting entrants from any country. There are also rumours that Gu'vnor has once again applied to represent Switzerland.  She came last and scored 0 points at the 1998 contest in Birmingham.

It's being widely reported in some parts of the Swiss media that Paolo Meneguz will represent them next year in Belgrade.  This has yet to be confirmed by Swiss Broadcasters. 

Paolo is well known amongst the Italian speaking parts of Europe but is a virtual unknown elsewhere.  He has taken part in the San Remo festival on 4 occasions.

The first song title for the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest is now known.  Following the rumours Switzerland has confirmed that Paolo Meneguzzi will represent them singing a song called "Era stupendo".  It is believed to be "a romantic ballad with 70s dance elements".  It is not yet known when the song will be made public.

:hi5: - I hope so too.

One interesting point though.  With San Marino now confirmed, Switzerland singing in Italian, and Latvia qualifying for the final in 2007 singing in Italian, is this enough for Italy to consider returning to the ESC?

Don't forget "Tornero" & "Liubi, liubi, I love you"  :P

I'd love to see someone winning with an italian song :P Maybe then Italy will consider returning to the ESC.  :shrug:

How could I forget them :doh:.  I've never been a fan of Italian entries on the whole but there are some wonderful songs in Italian (Swi 81, Ita 92 for example).  Serbia winning has also shown that you don't have to sing in English to win. 

Now we know the first song title I'm already getting excited about the 2008 contest :-[
