Switzerland’s First Rehearsal.
Next to rehearse on stage is Switzerland. This year’s representative is the group Timebelle which tries also in 2015 to participate in the contest but ended up 2nd in the national final. Its members are Miruna Manescu (Romanian origin), the drummer Samuel Forster (Switzerland) and Emanuel Daniel Andriescu -saxophonist, pianist – (Romanian origin). The group’s song «Apollo» is a creation of the composer Alessandra Günthardt (composer also of the eurovision entry of Azerbaijan 2014 “Start the fire“),Elias Näslin and Nicolas Günthardt . The choreography is directed by the internationally known famous choreographer and dance teacher Viet Dang.
Just before the group got on stage they stated: “Eurovision is like a big family and we are looking forward to getting on the stage”
On stage the artist is walking on a bright yellow platform and she is wearing a yellow dress with many layers of material. In front its wide open with a split and on the back it ends with a long train . The bodice is fitted and without straps.
The rest are dressed in pink with pink colored instruments. The back round has some Greek -Roman mythology elements.
Vocally she was really good but with this outfit probably she’s heading for this year’s Barbara Dex Award.
