Remo Forrer to represent Switzerland in Eurovision 2023

The Swiss broadcaster has revealed the identity behind their entrant for Eurovision 2023. As previously reported, the song will be revealed on March 7th.

Voice of Switzerland winner

At 21 years of age, the hopes of Switzerland at this year’s Eurovision will rest upon this young singer. He won the third season of the Voice of Switzerland in 2020, so he already has experience with musical television shows. He also won the show “Zeig uns Deine Stimmel” (Show Us Your Voice) last year.

He may only be 21, but he is ready for what lies ahead. “I can not only deliver under pressure, I also like to do it,” he says about himself.

But what about the song? We won’t know it for another two weeks, but Remo has also talked about the song in his press release.

“The song means a lot to me. It definitely has catchy tune potential and has been following me around for months. And it demands everything from my voice, it goes from very low to very high.”

Switzerland in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022

Switzerland won the first ever Eurovision contest in 1956 with Lys Assia. They also won in 1988, where Celine Dion took the crown.

Last year, Marius Bear and his emotional ballad, ‘Boys Do Cry‘, became the 62nd appearance of Switzerland in the Eurovision Song Contest. During the contest in Turin, Switzerland qualified from the first Semi-Final in 9th place. Following an emotive performance in the Grand Final, Marius achieved a respectable 17th place with 78 points. Remo Morrer will be aiming to look to improve upon this.
