Gjon's Tears says "Tout l'univers" was written in English | Switzerland Eurovision 2021 INTERVIEW
Switzerland's Eurovision 2021 singer Gjon's Tears tells us about his song "Tout l'univers". The song, now a favourite to win Eurovision in the betting odds, was originally written in English and called "Ground Zero". Gjon plays us a snippet of the original version and reveals that the jury preferred the recorded version in English, but preferred the live version in French. The song is about "construction and destruction" - and how we are stuck in this cycle of life. It's important that we love ourselves to get through challenges as we are the person who we can most control. Gjon also explains the meaning behind the music video and how it was inspired by a real-life incident he had in a burning car.
