It is sometimes easier to reach success internationally rather than nationally. Luca Hänni is doing both this year!
After a respectable and historic fourth place last May in Tel Aviv, Luca Hänni‘s She got me continues to conquer a broad audience. The song is currently topping the Swiss charts and is likely to continue during Summer.
But it’s not all for Luca! Just this week he received a(nother) recognition: the “Radio Pilatus His 600” award! The prize goes to the most listened song in central Switzerland. At its 12th edition, it is only the fourth time that a Swiss entry wins it. In 2012, DJ Antoine got it for his Ma chérie, and more recently the Bernese rap duo Lo & Leduc was awarded it in 2015 for Jung verdammt and again in 2018 for “079“.
We are gonna celebrate it
An overwhelmed Luca reacted to his victory. He was particularly touched as he discovered his runner-ups in this ranking: no less than Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper with the worldwide hit Shallow.
Luca Hänni in Eurovision
The young singer from Bern was internally selected to represent Switzerland at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel. Reaching the final for the first time since 2014, the Swiss entry landed in a historic fourth place in the Grand Final, the best result for the landlocked country since 1993.
