Eurovision 2011: Have we found our winner Part 8

This year there are only two ballads so they are bound to stand out. Both are from Central Europe (Switzerland and Austria) with the Swiss sending a plain sweet song with stripped down production. On the other hand Austria are sending their best entry for years.

Nadine Beiler not only packs a lot of power in her voice the song is well constructed starting out as gospely acapella, on to a strong memorable chorus and main body of the song culminating in some anthemic soul with a gospel sounding choir at the end.

It ticks a lot of boxes for those that win:

1. It can’t be labelled

2. It’s a strong song

3. She has a good voice

Should easily qualify and could do well.
