What a lovely dress! Hello Hello everyone Who are you? I’m Inge Ginsberg. Mrs Ginsberg I’ve got fans in the audience. Mrs Ginsberg, I know I shouldn’t ask, but can you tell us about how old you are? I’m very proud of it. I’m nearly 94. No! And my biggest talent isn’t singing – it’s surviving. And my biggest talent isn’t singing – it’s surviving. You’ve not performed yet but we love you already. That’s lovely. What connections do you have with Switzerland? I arrived in Switzerland as a refugee in 1942. Switzerland was very decent and took in refugees. Then I looked after a villa in Lugano for the American secret service. The partisans’ villa. The first members of the Italian resistance were organized in this villa. I smuggled weapons to Domodos. What a great story! Amazing! Mrs Ginsberg, have you ever in your short life stood on a stage before? Never. Never. Never. This if the very first time I’ve stood on a stage and held a microphone in my hand. I keep needing to make sure I speak into it. And why am I doing this? We could live to the age of 120. And that’s what I want to do. 120 years old. It’s important to stay connected with life and surround yourself with young people. And keep doing things you’ve never done before. You may well laugh at me, but not until you’ve done the same. Mrs Ginsberg, we’re all very much looking forward to your performance. best of luck. Lots and lots of luck. Where are my partners? And how old is he, even older? Yes, a band. That’s Lucia. That’s Professor Da Silva. That’s a famous pianist. They’re only doing it for my sake, so that I can have fun. Marvellous I have to keep looking at them otherwise I won’t know when to begin. No no no. We’re smashing atoms And smashing the world Without worrying Whether this pleases the ruins We’re shattering families And shattering pride We’re poisoning flowers And chopping up trees And when everything is ruined We hear the cry What have we done? What have we done? We’re crushing culture And destroying nature We’re drowning in filth All that’s good and beautiful is gone And when everything’s ruined We hear the cry What have we done? What have we done? Now it all starts again Mrs Ginsberg. You’re a hot contender here. Wow! I expected a lot. The likes of Edith Piaf or Marilyn Monroe. That was absolutely terrific. And your accompanists… Awesome That’s the best I’ve ever heard. We’ve got an expert here. She could be a background singer for you. Mrs Ginsberg, I’m truly proud of you, and of what we’ve been able to experience here tonight. Is that your own composition? I wrote the lyrics and the band wrote the music. Mrs Ginsberg, I have to say that when someone’s led a life like you have and experienced so much and survived so much, then asks “what have we done?” Then it’s time for some people to do some serious thinking. I think that’s splendid and I’d love to have a little kiss from you. That’s the best reward. Who knows if I’ll ever experience anything like this again. Thank you so much! Super! Mrs Ginsberg, it’s great that you’ve got so much pent up anger and rebellion and you want to get it all out and not keep it bottled up like lots of people of your age. You could feel a bit excluded by society. Very good. That’s tremendous. It’s just so fantastic. You’re anything but grey and bitter; you’re young and luscious. Really cool. Mrs Ginsberg, I’m extremely honoured this evening. And let me tell you why. I saw the story of that house in Lugano on the television. And it’s a great honour for me to meet a lady like you this evening. It’s time to vote. I don’t need the audience like the other two. Yes. So it’s a definite yes. You’ve got four yeses. You’ve got through to the next round. Congratulations!
