Switzerland is one of the founder members of the Eurovision Song Contest having debuted in the very first contest in 1956 in Lugano. The Alpine nation has won the competition twice with Lys Assia (1956) and Celine Dion (1988).

In  2019 Luca Haenni was selected by SRF to represent Switzerland at the Eurovision Song Contest with his entry She got me. Luca achieved an honorable 4th placing at the 2019 ESC Grand Final in Israel, thus giving Switzerland its highest result in the competition since 1993 when the country placed 3rd in Millstreet with  Moi tout simplement.
