Switzerland in 1992 was going to be represented by Geraldine Olivier and her song “Soleil Soleil” to sent in Sweden. Despite winning the national final the entry was replace by the second placer Daisy Auvray with the song “Mister Music Man”. Geraldine’s song was originally submitted to the French-speaking broadcaster with French lyrics. The broadcaster rejected the song and the entry was submitted to the German-speaking broadcaster with German lyrics. At Eurovision, the second placer Daisy Auvray placed 15th with 32 points.
