The general public can vote for their favorite entry online. Voting period begins November 4th and ends on the 18th. In addition, a professional jury will account for 50% of the total votes. The top 18 songs will move to the second stage of the competition which involves an “Expert Check” of the selected candidates. It is scheduled to take place in Zurich on 30 November 2013. Six artists and songs will qualify from the SRF/RTR selection and will proceed to the third stage, the televised national final on February 1st, 2014.
Best of luck, Annet!
