The deadline has passed in Switzerland and broadcaster SRF reveal that they have received 515 entries this year!

A 100-member audience panel together with a 20-member international jury will listen to all of the submitted entries and rate the songs and artists. The winner, and the Swiss entry for Eurovision 2020 will also be decided by these two panels, as both panels will have a 50% say in the final outcome.

Luca Hänni and his ‘She Got Me’ are the cause of all that pride:
