Some time ago, the country’s broadcaster, SRF, revealed the twenty-three Eurovision special judges who selected the Swiss representative for Eurovision 2022. The jury consisted of individuals who have either competed as singers – songwriters or as members of a national jury in the competition.
As well as the lesser-known national jury members, some former Eurovision acts have sat on the jury to choose Switzerland’s entry – could the entry go two steps further than last year and win the whole contest?
Among the jury, familiar faces include:
- Ovidiu Jacobsen (Ovi) – Romania 2010 & 2014
- Tinkara Kovač – Slovenia 2014
- Gabriela Horn (PÆNDA) – Austria 2019
- Helga Möller – Iceland 1986
- Alexey Gross – Belarus national final 2016
- Gore Melian – Cyprus national final 2009
- Ludmila Kuts – Belarus backing singer 2011
- Karl-Ander Reismann – Eesti Laul songwriter
Last year Gjon gave Switzerland their best result in the contest since 1993. “Tout l’univers” ultimately placed 3rd in the Grand Final in Rotterdam, winning the jury vote and scoring 432 points.
