Throwback to Eurovision

A common factor that both Rossinelli and the Lovebugs share is their past participation at previous editions of the Eurovision Song Contest, however their journeys to the Eurovision stage took a slightly different path.

The Lovebugs’ journey

The Lovebugs were internally selected by the Swiss broadcaster to represent the nation at the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest in the host city of Moscow, following an open call for promising artists wanting to compete in the competition.

Having formed in 1992 and gained a solid following over their many years of performing, the German-Swiss broadcaster decided that the Lovebugs would be the ideal choice for the forthcoming contest, who went on to represent the nation with the song The highest heights.

The band competed in the first semi-final of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest, however the nation failed to qualify to the final of the competition having received a total of 15 points, therefore finishing in 14th place.

Anna Rosinelli’s 2011 success

Two years on and it was Rosinelli’s time to shine on the Eurovision stage! Six years of internal selections saw a change in tactics for the Swiss broadcaster in 2011, which went on to host a national final for the nation under the name Die grosse Entscheidungs Show, a selection that has remained to this day.

Twelve acts competed for the right to represent their nation in the city of Düsseldorf, however it was Rosinelli who won the hearts of the public and went on to represent her nation at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest.

Competing in the first semi-final with her entry In love for a while, Rosinelli took the Swiss nation back to the final of the competition where she received a total of 19 points, placing in 25th position on the final night.
