Mélanie René's childhood dream comes true

"I went to Lugano for the first time this 29th March. I was invited by the TV show Show Time as a guest singer to sing my song Time to Shine", Mélanie René told Eurovision.tv about her most recent activities. "It was amazing, everybody was really nice and welcoming, and the city was so beautiful! I think I will have to go back there soon!"

With less than one month to go before the rehearsals for the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest kick off in Vienna, Mélanie is busy preparing herself and her team for the challenge ahead of them: "At the moment we are rehearsing the staging as well as the singing with the backing vocalists. We are currently working on the concept of the performance. It is very exciting, and I can’t wait for you guys to see it!"
