Out of the eighteen acts who qualified in the regional preselection heats, an expert commission has chosen the following six to move forward to the national final:
In a day-long event, which was held on Saturday in the SRF studios in Zurich and broadcast live on the internet, all eighteen acts had to perform their songs in front of an expert commission, consisting of Rafael Antonio, Freda Goodlett, Moritz Faccin, Catherine Colombara, Emile Felber, and Nicola Locarnini. They jury had to focus their judgement on the vocals and live performing abilities of the artists.
The six hopefuls will perform their entries once again live in the national final, to be broadcast live on February 1st from the Bodensee Arena in Kreuzlingen. A 50/50 combination of televoting and the votes of an expert jury will then decide who will represent Switzerland in Copenhagen next May.
