ESC 2018 – Die Entscheidungsshow

"ESC 2018 – Die Entscheidungsshow" was held on 4 February 2018, at SRF's Studio 1 in Zurich. Here the six finalists fought for the honor of representing Switzerland at Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon. The Swiss representative in Lisbon was determined by 50/50 televoting/international jury (Albania, Armenia, France, Germany, Iceland, Israel and Italy).

Prior to Die Entscheidungsshow the six finalists were selected by a 20-member independent jury back in November 2017. The jury consisted of music and media persons, ESC fans and tv viewers. The six finalists and their songs were revealed on 9 January 2018.

Entscheidungsshow 2018 was hosted by Sven Epiney, who has been the Swiss German Eurovision commentator for SRF since 2008.

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 14 tries. Switzerland is a proud member of "Club Null", with four contests without any points.
