In a very quiet selection process so far the news arrived today like a thunderstorm. Rapper Nemo are rumoured to represent the Alpine country at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö. For the 24 year-old singer from Biel this would be their biggest stage so far.

In all happened very quickly. For months the release of the Swiss act to the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden, was expected to happen in March. Then the date of 7 March was advanced, until the Swiss Head of Delegation Yves Schifferle posted today on Instagram that this Thursday 29 February Eurofans will know everything: act, song and video.

Yet, as reported on Blick.ch, rumours have it that 24 year-old rapper Nemo would be this year’s representative of Switzerland. The singer from Biel/Bienne would be the lucky selected act of this internal selection process and hence follow the footsteps of Remo Forrer.

If confirmed Nemo will be on the Eurovision stage in the first half of the second semi final on Thursday 9 May 2024.
