Switzerland opens 2020 Eurovision search.

Who succeeds Luca Hanni as Switzerland's Eurovision representative in the Netherlands?

Switzerland have confirmed they’ll be heading to the Netherlands for The Eurovision Song Contest next year.

Hey Luca!

It won’t come as a suprise, but SRF are planning to do exactly what they did for Tel Aviv. Broadcasters SRF, RTS, RSI and RTR will be looking for a singer and song internally.

Helping them announce their plans is 2019 representative Luca Hänni who spoke about his experience of the process to call on native countrymen and women to submit a song in hope to represent Switzerland in the Netherlands. You can check out the video below:

In the clip, Luca talks about writing She got me a year ago, submitting it to SRF’s selection, the incredible Eurovision experience he’s had and the success of his song across Europe.

Never change a winning format

Just like last year’s selection, an audience panel of 100 members and an international jury of 20 experts will evaluate all submissions and decide on a winning song and the artist for Switzerland. Details about the registration conditions and the selection process can be found on SRF.ch.

Submission window

Those interested have some time. From 2nd September until noon September 16 songwriters, producers, artists, and lyricists are invited to submit their song or demo via the following link. As last year, the songs will not be made available to the public.

The announcement of the Swiss artist for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 will be made in due course, and by no means later than March next year.

Luca Hänni represented Switzerland in 2019 with his song She got me, placing fourth in the grand final. It’s Switzerland’s best result since 1993, when Annie Cotton finished third with Moi, tout simplement.
