The 9 acts listed above join the 3 acts that were selected by the Swiss Italian speaking national broadcaster, RSI, and the 6 acts chosen by the Swiss French speaking national broadcaster, RTS, to take part in the second phase of the competition. During the second phase of the contest, the 18 selected acts will audition live in front of a special panel who will then narrow the 18 acts down to 6 acts – 3 acts from SRF/RTR, 2 acts from RTS and 1 act from RSI. The artists will then take part in the national final on the 31 January in the city of Kreuzlingen.
