Spain’s search for its 2017 Eurovision song and artist finally received a date this week and it is happening very soon indeed. In fact it will happen this Saturday, the 11th February. Six acts including the online eurocasting winner will do battle in the final of Objetivo Eurovision 2017, and we rank our favourites below.
Last night saw the conclusion of Spanish broadcaster TVE’s online Eurocasting. The three remaining artists battled it out to be named the wildcard act at the final of the Spanish Eurovision selection show in Madrid in February. As well as this, the broadcaster also announced the other five acts that would compete in the final of Objetivo Eurovision 2017.
The Swiss national selection process ‘ESC 2016 – Die Entscheidungsshow’ staged its final earlier this evening and has crowned Rykka as the winner. The singer will go out to represent Switzerland in Stockholm at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest in May with her song ‘The Last of Our Kind’.
Six acts will battle it out to be the Swiss entry for Eurovision 2016 later tonight. But which of them do you think deserves to go to Stockholm. Our poll results are below:

Switzerland failed to qualify for the Eurovision Final in 2015 when Melanie Rene’s ‘Time to Shine’ finished 17th out of seventeen songs in the second semi final. Switzerland have finished last on another seven occasions, and in addition to that have received nul points four times. On the positive side of things, the Swiss have won the contest twice with Celine Dion in 1988 and the very first contest in 1956 with Lys Assia. In recent years ‘Hunter of Stars’ by Sebalter in 2014 has been their best result, finishing in 13th place. Switzerland are back in 2016 and hoping to reverse the fortunes of the past few attempts.
