Mo’s Eurovision Countdown 2019 – Switzerland

Luca is about to give the Swiss their best result in years. It’s not a big ask.

The trite lyric tries way too hard and I never realised ‘Dirty Dancing’ was still a thing. But Luca makes for enjoyable eye candy, and I suspect he’ll be put through his paces by Sacha Jean-Baptiste.

The preview parties haven’t shown him at his best, so all eyes will be on the rehearsal stage to see if he can pull this off live.

To me, this sounds like the kind of song that usually gives the Greeks and Cypriots an upper-table result. Eleni’s second place in Lisbon breathed new life into the format.

Luca is no Eleni. But he could just rescue the Swiss from their usual place in the Eurovision bargain bin.
