Yesterday, members of the entertainment committee of the Swiss French-language broadcaster RTS gathered at Studio 15 of Radio Lausanne and selected six artists who will go through to the second selection round for the Swiss national final.
The selected artists are:
Alenko – Vu d’en haut
Anach Cuan – Hurdy Gurdy
Célia – Letter to Myself
Licia Chery – Fly

After the Italian-language broadcaster RSI has already sent in their three candidates (Deborah Bough with One, two, three, take me back to 23, The Vad Vac with Coctail e fantasmi, and Elias ft. Zero In On with On Your Perfume) some three weeks ago, it is still up to the German-language and Romansh-language broadcasters SRF and RTR to unveil their nine acts. In total, 18 songs will qualify for the live auditions, which are scheduled to be held in Zurich on 7th December.
After the auditions, a total of six candidates will be shortlisted by an expert jury. Die große Entscheidungsshow – the Swiss national selection – is scheduled to be held on 31st January 2015 in the Bodensee Arena in Kreuzlingen.
