Out of these acts, an expert jury will pick six acts to qualify for the following three shows, where they will be able to prove their musical qualities with the help of three coaches: Anna F., Nazar, and The BossHoss.
In the second and third show, the remaining acts will be subject to different challenges, in which they can show prove their performing qualities.
Together with the coaches and an international songwriting team, each of the six acts will prepare two potential Eurovision songs. Part of the team are Julie Frost (composer of Lena's winning song Satellite in 2010), Jimmy Harry (who already produced hits for Bruno Mars, Pink, and Madonna), and several creative artists from Austria including Lukas Hillebrand and Wolfgang Schlögel (aka I-Wolf das Projekt).
On March 13th, the final will be broadcast live, and it will be the joint decision of the TV public and the jury which act and which song will represent Austria on home ground.
