ImageInterview Lys Assia - The very first Winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 1956 for Switzerland:  OGAE Sweden organised their annual Fanclub Convention on 13 October 2012 in the municipalty of Eskilstuna near Stockholm in Sweden. National and International artists were invited to this event such as Joan Franka (Netherlands 2012), Glen Vella (Malta 2011), SINPLUS (Switzerland 2012), Esther Hart (Netherlands 2012), Birgitta Haukdahl (Iceland 2003) and the Mother of the Eurovision Song Contest - the very first Winner LYS ASSIA who back in 1956 won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Refrain". Lys attempted to obtain the ticket to the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 with a Ralph Siegel composition called "C'etait ma vie" which came 8th in the Swiss National Final 2012, though SINPLUS won with the song "Unbreakable" and represented Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku. Lys Assia represented Switzerland three times in the 50s: "Refrain" in 1956 which was the winning song of the very first Eurovision Song Contest, then she returned the year after with the song "L'enfant que j'etait" wich came 8th and then in 1958 she ranked Switzerland 2nd with "Giorgio". Now she wants to try again to represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 with a very modern composition called "All in your head" performed by Lys Assia feat New Jack. The Swiss National Selection is planned to take place on 15 December 2012 in Kreuzlingen, Switzerland. The Team of Radio International was in Eskilstuna, Sweden and conducted interviews with the invited Eurovision artists including with the Grand Dame of the Eurovision Song Contest - Lys Assia.
