Switzerland has already announced that it will internally select the artist and song that will represent it at Eurovision 2023.
The German-language public broadcaster SRF opened the submission of entries between August 25 and September 8, with the selection process being the same as that used since 2019, which actually gave Switzerland a qualifying run for the first time, as well as two top 5 finishes.
As in previous years there will be several stages in the selection. At all stages, entries will be evaluated by two panels of judges. The first jury will consist of 100 Swiss viewers. The second jury will consist of 20 international music professionals, who have already been members of their countries’ Eurovision committees. Each jury will account for 50% of the total score. However, in the event of a tie, preference will be given to performers who are citizens or residents of Switzerland.
Yesterday, through his personal page on Facebook, the representative of Romania in the contest in 2010 and 2014, Ovi Jacobsen, revealed that he is a member of the panel that will choose the participation of Switzerland, in the upcoming Eurovision, which is actually in the final stage selection and chances are there is already a winner.
As SRF has announced, the winning song and artist will be revealed in early 2023.
Marius Bear represented Switzerland at Eurovision 2022 with the song Boys Do Cry, placing 17th in the grand final.
