Swiss broadcaster SRF today confirmed the six acts and songs that will compete in this year’s Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow.
Earlier this evening the six Swiss hopefuls took to the stage to perform their songs in their bid to represent their country at Eurovision 2017. Only one act could be successful and that honour went to Timebelle. They will represent Switzerland with their song ‘Apollo’ in Kiev in May.
Earlier this week we ranked the six songs in the running for the Swiss national final which will take place tomorrow evening. Our favourite was easily Timebelle’s song ‘Apollo’. We asked you to share your opinion and it would seem that you agreed.

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.
