The music video for Switzerland’s Eurovision entry has been released.
Today the official music video for “Stones” was released, featuring a slightly revamped version of the song. The instrumentation has been tweaked, and Zibbz will sing this version at the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, Portugal this May.
According to Zibbz, their song has a clear message:
Bullying stops people from dreaming. It happens everywhere and, of course, putting yourself down is also a form of bullying.
The pair wrapped up filming the video at the end of February, which took place in Los Angeles, California, where the siblings reside.
Zibbz were selected to represent Switzerland at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest after they won the Swiss national final show, a staggering 88 points ahead of second place. At the contest, they will be singing their song “Stones”. Get to know more about the duo here.
Switzerland hosted the first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 a contest that they won. Lys Assia won the first contest with the song “Refrain”, it wasn’t until 1988 that Switzerland would win the contest again. At the contest in Dublin, it was Celine Dion with “Ne partez pas sans moi” who beat the United Kingdom to victory by just 1 point. In recent years Switzerland has finished last five times since 2004. In the past three years, Switzerland has failed to reach the final.
