We published this last year, but no one cared! – As it’s their final tonight, here’s a quick rundown of the finalists! – go on, check the Swiss Misses out.
After a pre-selection process that surely tested the patience of a good many saints, six performers have earned their stripes with a spot at Entscheidungsshow – the Swiss Eurovision Song Contest national final.
This year, it’s a joint affair with less emphasis on the regions. The aim being to reverse a dismal record at the contest and bring an end to a run of uninspired dirge. Swiss broadcasters joined forces and wisely stopped listening to the wisdom of the internet. Hardy jury members whittled down 160 entries into a shortlist of six. It’s the usual heady mix of talent show entrants, one returning act and a few minor Europop stars.
