In case the original pop-rock stylings of “Stones” kept you wanting more, Swiss Eurovision entrants ZiBBZ has a treat for you.
ZiBBZ, the brother/sister duo representing Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, showcased their musical versatility in a multi-genre music video for their song “Stones”. Released earlier this weekend by Swiss broadcaster SRF, the video features the first part of “Stones” translated into a medley of seven new genres: hip-hop, reggae, opera, EDM, country, metal, and even traditional alpine Ländler music.

“We had so much fun producing this with SRF,” ZiBBZ said on their official Facebook page.
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”. They will perform in the first semi-final on May 8. 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.
