Switzerland: The finalists for EUROVISION 2016 revealed
The six acts that will compete for the right to represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 have been selected and revealed.
The nineteen shortlisted acts all performed live to a jury in the expert check, with the jury cutting the list to just six songs that will take part in the Swiss national final in February.
Rykka, Vincent Gross and act Stanley Miller were selected from the SRF selection, which saw over 100 acts enter the initial phase of voting.
Bella C & Stephanie Palazzo were selected from the RTS selection, whilst Theo rounds up the finalists representing the Italian Swiss broadcaster RSI.
All 19 acts announced last month performed in front of the expert check jury in Zurich during a marathon day (and night) of performances, all hosted by Sven Epiney. Jurors judged the acts on live competency, vocal skills and stage presence. Eight hours later the juries began deliberations and we now know the six acts who will sing in the final of Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow 2016, which takes place on February 13. They will also perform a cover version of a song of their choice.
