She go so low, she go so low
Oh, she know oh
Oh, she know she got me dirty dancin'

Luca Hänni

Luca was Born in 1994 in the Swiss capital Bern. He is known from the German-speaking music scene thanks to his victory in the ninth edition of the German version of Idol. This opened a career in the German-speaking music industry, highlighting its facets as a musician, composer and multi-instrumentalist: he plays guitar, piano and drums. He has carried out several musical tours with his band, both as part of duos and trios.

In 2017 he participated in the TV show "Dance Dance Dance" on German RTL channel, where he won the first place.

Luca has released four studio albums for which he has won several awards and awarded him platinum and gold records.

At Eurovision 2016 Luca was jury member for Switzerland, and at Eurovision 2017 he was the spokesperson, giving the Swiss votes.

Internal selection

After four years of non-qualification to the final, the broadcaster organised an internal selection in order to select the Swiss entry. "Die Entscheidungsshow" has been used previous years to select their artist and song for Eurovision.

The selection was in the hands of a Swiss 100-member public panel, and an international jury formed of individuals with previous connections to Eurovision Song Contest. The public panel and the international jury had each 50% say in the Swiss entry.

All of the four Swiss broadcasters SRF, RSI, RTS and RTR had the option to add wildcard entries to the selection.

Switzerland in Eurovision Song Contest

Switzerland 1988 | Céline Dion - "Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi"

Switzerland has been in Eurovision Song Contest since it's beginning in 1956 - in Switzerland. And the winner of the first very Eurovision Song Contest was... Lys Assia from Switzerland with the song "Refrain". Since then, Switzerland won the 1988-contest by an, back then, unknown girl, Céline Dion with the song "Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi" (only ONE point to number two, United Kingdom). A Star was born.

Since then, Switzerland hasn'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 15 tries. Switzerland is a proud member of "Club Null", with four contests without any points.
