Switzerland changes selection for Eurovision 2017
Switzerland has decided to remove portions of the selection process and base it entirely off of their web platform. It will all come together with a final in February.
Interested applicants can apply between September 26 through October 24 on the online platform. From there, a jury will invite 20 acts for a live check.
Eight acts will then be selected from the live check for the final on February 5.
All acts must have a connection to Switzerland. At least one member of the songwriting or performing team must either be a resident or citizen of Switzerland.
The winner of the final will be determined by 100% televote.
