SRF has revealed their selection plans for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018. After three years absent from the Grand Final, the broadcaster is determined to change the poor results they have achieved the last editions.
Once again, SRF, along with RTS, RSI and RTR, will look for the best song to represent Switzerland in the biggest European competition. This year, however, there will be a few changes in the jury members that will decide the outcome of the two stages of the competition.
All interested candidates must submit their application from September 1 to 22, 2017. Among all songs received, a professional jury will select a number of them for the national final. The expert panel for this phase will be made up of around 20 music and media representatives, Eurovision fans and television viewers selected by the broadcaster.
The Swiss national final will be held live from Zurich on 4 February 2018. The winner of the show will be decided by a 50/50 combination of votes from the audience, via televoting, and international jury panel.
