Switzerland fails to make Eurovision Song Contest Final: what a surprise!

Just listened to the duet representing Switzerland, just another "soulless - blended- could be anywhere" performance.

I remember watching it as a kid/teenager and what was fascinating (naff outfits and ghastly presenters aside- bar Terry Wogan, of course!) was actually hearing different languages and music from around the globe...globalisation has just turned it all into a monolingual, mono-cultural musical junk.

Bring the yodlers, Alpine horns, flag throwers, wrestlers and skiers with a modern twist, sing in Swiss-German, French and Italian and stand out as Switzerland...or does it sound too nationalistic from a non-Swiss (yet!) ?
