The Swiss party monster and House-DJ Santiago Cortés wants to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest after his recent efforts to collaborate with Paris Hilton have fallen apart. Cortès announced that he will submit a song he recorded with Arjeta “Ari” Zuta the Swiss candidate in the current German version of Popstars.
The DJ from Bern, Switzerland recorded his dance track On the Floor with Ari. Reportedly their track is a Swedish sounding dance hit in the style of Dr. Alban. But Ari was surprised when Cortes told her just last Tuesday of his plans to enter their song in the Eurovision Song Contest. "Really we hadn't planned anything like that, and Santiago hadn't contacted me since we recorded the track," she told the Swiss newspaper 20 Minuten.
Ari also said she wouldn't be able to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest if she was successful in her casting show bid to become a Popstar. The newspaper implies that the announcement may be little more than an effort on Cortès' part to grab headlines. Cortés is promoting his new album Welcome to my airline.The DJ said he will submit their track next week. Cortés is the latest established Swiss artist attracting headlines by expressing interest in the internal Swiss selection. DJ Bobo kicked off an unusual flurry of grassroots Swiss interest in the contest when he recently said he would enter the Eurovision Song Contest if "the people wanted it". He also hasn't handed in his entry yet.
