Lys Assia gives her views on the Eurovision 2016 songs

Lys Assia

We’re all busy compiling lists of our favourite songs for 2016. No doubt they’ll all differ, as it’s a dull old world when we all agree. Is Sergey from Russia going to be everyone’s No.1 song, or is it over-rated? Will Serhat from San Marino and his re-arranged song make it to the final, or prop up the board? Will we get that surprise winner? These are all questions that, well, I’ve asked.

So when a name famous as the grandest of Grand Dames of Eurovisions picks her top 20, it’s time to sit up and take notice. Lys Assia – born Rosa-Mina Schärer – may have turned 92 last month, but she still has a good ear for music. Or does she?
