Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
You Got Me
Luca will be aiming to appeal to the televote along with the other upbeat entries from Norway and Cyprus.
Switzerland has presented Luca Hänni with the song, She Got Me, for Eurovision 2019.
Hänni was rumoured to be the Swiss representative as early as December last year, so the 100/1 prices were crazy given the content available to view on YouTube. The Dance performance of Powder and Signs shows Hänni’s athleticism and ability to own the stage.
The song is typically Eurovision in that it has borrowed elements from other songs, which isn’t surprising when one considers a small group of writers are involved in composing a large number of pre-selection and Eurovision entries. I can hear Fuego instrumentation and Despacito/Everyday influences in the verse and chorus melodies. I’m not really sure how important this is in the context of the Contest because this sort of song won’t be topping the jury scores in May. Luca will be aiming to appeal to the televote along with the other upbeat entries from Norway and Cyprus. He stands a good chance, as She Got Me is a perfect chart-worthy radio and Contest song, so the televote will be dependent on the quality of the performance.
The good news is that I tend to think Luca has a better chance of doing well than Tamta based on the videos I’ve see so far. Tamta tends to look like an unwilling passenger in choreography, whereas Luca is capable of throwing some serious shapes. Creating a mini music video on the Eurovision stage requires immense charisma and confidence, this is why Luca has the chance of a strong result in May and why the Cyprus price looks a tad short at 16/1. The big test will be who can sing and dance at the same time!
