Switzerland will select their participant for Eurovision 2017 on February 5 using a revamped selection process.
Switzerland has decided to drop the online part of their selection process after two years of finishing last in their semi final. The country will be accepting submissions for the contest from September 26 to October 24. From the submissions 20 songs will be selected from SRF, 20 from RSI, 20 from RTS and 20 from RTR.
A 20 member jury made up of producers, people from the music industry, musicians, journalists will then attend a live check. All of the 80 hopefuls who have been picked will then by assessed by the jury at the Live check on December 4. The jury will select between six and 10 songs to go through to the final. The winner of the selection which has moved to a Sunday will be decided by 100% public televote.
