Outfits:

Miruna from Timebelle is wearing a yellow gown, a colour not often seen on the Eurovision stage, but a colour which really suits Miruna’s complexion. The bodice is strapless and fitted, and made of a silky material. The skirt has a ball gown cut, with a split at the front. It has a long train and is made of many layers of material, with the top layer having a feathered effect. The dress coordinates well with the backdrop, but this may not be her final outfit.

The men of Timebelle are wearing classy white suits.

Eurovision 123 sessions with ESCToday and Timbelle!

Timebelle is next to take to their meet & greet session with the press in Kyiv, speaking of their Swiss participation:

It is amazing that we could reach and connect to an audience that is not our own native.

The trio went on to speak of their entry Apollo:

Apollo is the god of art and we are all connected to music since a very young age. When we say “I follow you Apollo” it equals to say “I follow you, music and art”.

Greek mythology for Switzerland! It’s very nice to see that Timebelle didn’t go on a dark ballad concept but on a shiny and colourful one. Miruna, the lead singer, stands high on a tall stand and goes down off its stairs towards the end of the performance.

Except for Miruna’s yellow the rest of the stage is a bland of blue, pink and white. Probably the best staging and visuals they could get for Apollo, which is a pretty average song. Probably saved from the last semifinal place this year, will it be enough for them to reach the top 10?
