  • Sebalter was born as Sebastiano Paù-Lessi in 1985. As a young teenager, Sebalter joined the hard rock band “The Stalkers,” and remained with them for about a year. Upon his exit, he joined the folk rock band “The Vad Vuc,” and remained with them till 2012.

    Sebalter began playing the fiddle at age six and continued during his time with The Vad Vuc. After around 10 years with the band, Sebalter left to pursue a solo career and continues with that venture to this day.


  • Sebalter initially auditioned for the Swiss selection by applying for the subselection sponsored Italian-language broadcaster RSI. After he was shortlisted as one of the three to continue, Sebalter performed for a jury and was selected as the sole artist to go on to the final from RSI.

    On February 1, the Swiss final titled “Die Große Entscheidungsshow” aired. Sebalter sang his self-written song “Hunter of Stars,” which was announced the winner, securing him as the Swiss representative in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

    Whistle

     

    Looking for a candidate you have an option only one choice

    Sipping my drinks looking around, there is so much beauty, oh yes we can

    But yet, self-confidence is a fragile concept, that often fades away in the night

    And there it comes, that unwanted guest, there is no place for you tonight

     

    Want me to go, want me to go

    Cause you think I’m lying cause you think I’m lying

    No, open the door

    Cause tonight I cannot go hunting for stars, no no

     

    Whistle

     

    Like an evil satellite, twisting the truth then leaving us alone

    In this mad and moody world, society without love

    I state my heart has been well trained, I’m gonna be your candidate

    I am the hunter you are the prey, tonight I’m gonna eat you up

     

    Want me to go, want me to go

    Cause you think I’m lying cause you think I’m lying

    No, open the door

    Cause tonight I cannot go hunting for stars, no no

     

    I press my nose to the glass, it’s raining outside, it’s raining outside

    I would like to storm in, roar like a lion, roar like a lion

    But I fear your judgement, oh I fear your judgement, I’m so wet, I’m dirty

    But I fear your judgement, oh I fear your judgement, it’s me and my

    imperfection

    Violine

     

    Want me to go, want me to go

    cause you think I’m lying cause you think I’m lying

    No, open the door

    Cause tonight I cannot go hunting for stars, no no

     

    Want me to go

    Cause you think I’m lying cause you think I’m lying

    No, open the door

    Cause tonight I cannot go hunting for stars, no no

     

    Want me to go

    Cause you think I’m lying cause you think I’m lying

    No, open the door

    Cause tonight I cannot go hunting for stars, no no

     

    Whistle
