Swiss broadcaster SRF have revealed which countries will be part of their international jury in Die Entscheidungsshow. They have picked seven countries, which will have a total of 50% of the vote. The other 50% will come from televoting.
From Albania to Italy
The range of countries selected by the Swiss broadcaster goes from friendly countries to usually successful countries. The list of seven can be found below:
These seven will vote during the Die Entscheidungsshow, where they will have a 50% share of the vote. The exact voting format has not been revealed yet. However, we do know that the televoters in Switzerland will also have 50% of the vote.
The Swiss national final will take place on Sunday, 4th February. Six acts will be hoping to represent Switzerland. They’ll be hoping to make the final for the first time since 2014 and only the third time since 2006.
The six acts for the Swiss national final are:
- Alejandro Reyes – Compass
- Angie Ott – A Thousand Times
- Chiara Dubey – Secrets and Lies
- Naeman – Kiss Me
- Vanessa Iraci – Redlights
- Zibbz – Stones
Among the songwriters, we’ve seen some familiar faces. Glen Vella, Malta’s 2011 Eurovision Song Contest entrant, has written Angie Ott’s song. Laurell Barker, who’s behind Alejandro Reyes’s song, as well as behind “Stones” by Zibbz, has also composed “Legends” for Asanda in the UK’s national final, You Decide.
Sven Epiney will once again host the Swiss national final. He’s done so for the past couple of years. You can also still predict who’s going to win Die Entscheidungsshow 2018 here.
