Like last year each of the 3 national broadcasters ( SRF/RTR, RTS and RSI) will put forward representatives for the Grand Final. Our favourite part is the online selection round by SRF that will take place from September 29th to October 27th. This throws up the fabulous to the unusual to the down right crazy – and we love them for it! Online votes and jury votes will select 9 acts to go forward in the SRF/RTR selection process.
