The following acts have qualified for the Swiss national final, to be broadcast live from the Bodensee Arena in Kreuzlingen on February 13th:
The qualifiers were picked by an expert commission, taking into account their live abilities, singing qualities and stage presence. The expert commission included Tanja Dankner (singer and vocal coach), Rafael Antonio (choreographer), as well as Daniel Meister, Catherine Colombara, and Andrea Bignasca (members of the respective Swiss broadcasters' Eurovision teams).
Update December 11th: Stéphanie Palazzo was disqualified as her entry Perché mi guardi cosi? does not comply with the Eurovision Song Contest rules. Kaceo has taken her place in the final line-up.
