On Monday, Swiss Eurovision fansite douzepoints.ch asked Swiss Head of Delegation, about the selection process for Switzerland in Eurovision 2020.
Back in September, SRF confirmed that it has received 515 public submissions to represent the landlocked country in Rotterdam. These songs are in the process of being filtered through a music expert jury and an audience panel. Peritz didn’t reveal much about the sounds, styles, composers or even acts involved – but did say the broadcaster was very happy with the excellent quality of submissions. He did, however, state that by the end of the year the broadcaster intends to publish interviews with people from both the expert jury and audience panel(s). Most importantly, both the song and act will be revealed to us all in March 2020.
Luca Hänni was announced on the 7th March 2019, so we can guess the Swiss broadcaster is following a similar timeline for 2020!
