Selection format

Once again the national final was organized as a joint project of the Swiss broadcasters from different regions. SRF chose nine candidates, RTS six and RSI three for the ‘Expert Check’ where each contestant performed its song for the jurors. The jury eventually chose six for the national final, held on February 1st. A mix of televotes and jury votes determined the winner.


Sebalter is a stage name of Sebastiano Paù-Lessi, 28. He joined a Swiss folk band The Vad Vuc in 2002 and was its member until 2012. The band released four albums during ten years but Sebalter decided to start a new chapter in his life and headed for a solo career. ‘Hunter of Stars’ is his debut solo single and he has composed it by himself. It is the lead single on his debut album which will be released later on.
