For years the Swiss broadcaster is zealously organizing a national final, even if the outcome has been disappointing in the last three years. Switzerland could not qualify for the Grand Final since 2014. This year’s national final is going to be broadcasted on February 4th live from the SRF studio in Zurich. The host will be Sven Epiney, as in previous years.
A jury out of 20 persons from different backgrounds (music experts, TV viewers and ESC fans) have chosen the final six songs. In a second round the singers have been allocated to the songs. In the live show there will be a 50% weighting from the Swiss public and 50% by an international jury. The show will be broadcasted via stream in the internet for everybody who is interested.

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
