The "ESC 2017 Entscheidungsshow" will be held on 5 February 2017 at 20:00 CET, at SRF's Studio 1 in Zurich. Here the six finalists will compete for the honor of representing Switzerland at Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv. In the liveshow, that TV audience will solely decide via televoting who the Swiss representative will be.
Since then, Switzerland haven't had huge succes in Eurovision. Since the introduction of Semi-finals in 2004, Switzerland only managed to qualify for the Grand Final 4 out of 13 tries. Switzerland is a proud member of "Club Zero", with four contests without any points.
