(CS) No, the Grand Duchy is not considering to enter the Eurovision race next year; but a Luxembourg singer could be competing on behalf of Switzerland.

Thierry Mersch, singer and school teacher, is in the running to perform for Switzerland, only one of dozens of candidates vying for Eurovision glory.

In 2011, Mersch represented Luxembourg at the World Championships of Performing Arts and went on to win the Eurogala, a miniature song contest with local artists, hosted in the Grand Duchy.

He is in the running, along with dozens of other singers, with two songs - “Here again” and “I Am Me”.

Mersch had previously said that he would love to compete at Eurovision for Luxembourg. Now, it seems, he has found a different way to make his dream come true.

His fate will be decided via an online vote in Switzerland.
