Today Swiss broadcaster SRF revealed that it has received 159 entries for Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow 2014, the Swiss national selection. Officials also announced the start of the online voting process.
That’s right folks: you have until 18 November to vote for your favourite entry. You can cast your vote here. The online voting will account for 50% of the combined vote. The other 50% will be decided by a panel of professional juries, who have until 30 November.
The combined votes will then decide which nine entries will advance to the next round. After 30 November, the nine artists will perform in front of a panel of experts, who will judge them based on their performing abilities. They then decide which 3 artists and their entries will compete at the Swiss national final on 1 February 2014.
The 3 entrants will compete against another 2 entries chosen by French language broadcaster RTS and one from Italian language broadcaster RSI.
