The Swiss broadcaster SRF made today some details of their national qualifying round. Der Grosse Entscheidungsshow will take place on Saturday 13 February. The selection procedure remains the same.

Just like previous years, candidates can register first via the internet heat of the German-language broadcaster SRF. That round runs from 28 september to 26 October. After a vote by the public and an expert jury, ten candidates will kick it up to the next round. RTS (French-language broadcaster) and RSI (Italian broadcaster) add a total of nine entries (six of RTS, three of RSI). A jury will choose six candidates who may record against each other during the Grand National final on 13 February.

Despite the poor result in Vienna there are apparently no changes are made to the selection procedure. Mélanie René sang Time To Shine for Switzerland last year and finished with only four points the very last place in her semi-final.
