MELANIE RENE – TIME TO SHINE
Composer: Mélanie René
Die Entschieddungsshow 2015 was the selection format that decided the Swiss entry for Eurovision this year. There was selections through three different channels, SRF/RTR, RTS and RSI, where songs were submitted. One was online, one on the radio, and the last one was listened to by a jury. Six songs proceeded on to the final, and they performed two songs each. One was their entry for Eurovision, and the second one was a chosen hit song. The final result was decided by jury and public voting. Melanie René won against the runner-up Timebelle.
Melanie has always had a passion for music and singing, as both her parents are musicians. She has studied music and received awards for her vocals. Her Eurovision entry is her first released single, which she composed all by herself back when she studied music in the UK.
Switzerland will compete in the second semifinal, on May 21st.
