Switzerland in Eurovision
The central European country has been one of the founding members of the EBU and is the country that hosted the first Eurovision ever in 1956.
Switzerland had the honour of winning the contest’s 1st edition with Lys Assia and Refrain. 32 years later, the Swiss people enjoyed their second victory in 1988, which was achieved by the world famous Céline Dion singing Ne partez pas sans moi.
However, the country has had relatively poor results over the last two decades. Switzerland has missed 9 finals since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004 and has reached the Top 10 only once, in 2005.
In 2017, the three-member band Timebelle represented Switzerland with a pop-genre song Apollo. The band came 12th in the second semi-final, thus did not qualify to the final.
