Remo Forrer releases Switzerland’s Eurovision 2023 entry “Watergun”

Remo Forrer was announced as the Swiss representative back in February, after Switzerland’s broadcaster SRF had already announced that they would opt for an internal selection again in 2023. Now, only two weeks after their artist announcement, Remo has shared his Eurovision 2023 song: “Watergun”!

Switzerland’s Eurovision 2023 song

The title of the song was only revealed during the release itself, but Remo did share a few snippets of the song on his social media already. Remo himself describes the song as follows:

“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.”

Who is Remo Forrer?

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. This means that Remo is definitely used to being on the stage and performing live.

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.

You can watch his audition for The Voice of Switzerland below:

Switzerland in the Eurovision Song Contest

Switzerland won the first ever Eurovision contest in 1956 with Lys Assia. They also won in 1988, where Celine Dion took the crown with “Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi”.

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. In the Grand Final, Marius achieved a respectable 17th place with 78 points.
