ImageInterview with Lys Assia (Switzerland 1956, 1957 & 1968): The Mother of the Eurovision Song Contest as Lys Assia is the very first Winner when it all kicked off in the Teatro Kursal in Lugo Switzerland back in 1956 when seven countries competed for the very first trophy. Each country performed two songs. Lys Assia became the Winner for Switzerland with herthen French language entry called "Refrain". It is now known where her second entry "Das alte Karussel"  ended up in the very first Eurovision Song Contest. She then represented Switzerland in the following two years in 1957 with "L'enfant Que J'etais" which reached Number 8 and in 1958 Lys Assia came second with "Giorgio". In 2012 she attempted again to represent her native Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest with a Ralph Siegel composition called "C'etait ma vie" which came 8th in the Swiss National Selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2012. Lys Assia as the "Mother" of the Eurovision Song Contest likes to be with her "Family" and is very often a guest of honour during the Grand Final.
