After a lengthy selection process, involving regional selection rounds, an online platform, and a live casting, we are about to reach the final point - Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow, to be broadcast tonight from the town of Kreuzlingen. The following six acts will compete in the show, which starts at 20:10 CET:
- Christian Tschanz - Au paradis
- 3 For All - Together Forever
- Nino Colonna - La luce del cuore
- Yasmina Hunzinger - I Still Believe
- Natacha & Stéphanie - Une terre sans vous
- Sebalter - Hunter of Stars
During the show, the winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, Emmelie de Forest, will perform, too. You can learn more about the six candidates in six special video features produced by SRF (in German language).
The national final will again be hosted by Sven Epiney, who is also the Swiss commentator in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Each act will not only present their potential Eurovision entry but also a cover version of a popular hit, so that the viewers can better judge their vocal abilities. In the end, a 50/50 combination of televoting and an expert jury will pick the Swiss representative in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

Previously, each regional broadcaster had conducted their own preselection, out of which a total of 18 candidates were selected to perform in a live "expert check". During that step, the initial list of participants was narrowed down to those six acts who we will get to see tonight.
