Just like last year, Switzerland, one of the seven countries competing in the very first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 and first winner (Lys Assia, Refrain), starts the season of national pre-selections here on ESC Radio. Over the past few weeks, artists submitted songs and videos to Swiss broadcaster SRF for an online voting, the first stage in the country’s effort to find a suitable candidate for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in May.
From today on, we have included songs from the Swiss selection in our playlist. Internet users and Eurovision fans will be able to vote for their favourites from 4-18 November on the broadcaster’s internet platform at http://www.eurovisionplattform.sf.tv/
Tune in to ESC Radio and check out the competing songs!
