Singing bus driver named top Swiss talent



Like British singer Susan Boyle, who wowed listeners with her beautiful voice a couple of years ago, Maya Wirz has become a singing sensation in Switzerland.
Until recently, singing has taken a backseat in the life of the bus driver from canton Aargau.

swissinfo.ch spoke to the singer who was crowned winner of “Die grössten Schweizer Talente” – the equivalent of “Britain’s Got Talent” and “American Idol” in the German-speaking part of Switzerland.

About 1,000 acts applied for the chance to appear on the televised talent show, with just two dozen chosen to compete. Week by week, 49-year-old Wirz worked her way to the grand finale on Sunday evening

Re: Singing bus driver named top Swiss talent

I really like these stories. It just goes to show there is SOOO much talent out there in the world that we never see and this is never shown. Not just the "Idol" and pop star type. But people who sing and dance and paint and draw and knit, etc etc in the privacy of their homes or towns.

She's adorable. Good for her!

But I have to say, that host looks plastic.... How much make up does he have on!? lol.

Thanks for the post. I didn't know there was a "CH's got talent". Is it only for the Swiss Germans? How is it run for the French & Italians? Is there a separate show?
