    As for the votes, French is, along with English, the official language of ESC, so why don't they announce their vote every year in French, it's one of their national languages for God's sake !
    Nearly 65% of the Swiss population are German speakers, I don't see why French should have the upper-hand here?

    Maybe French is universally more "appealing" to the random listener , I dunno... could be interesting if one could find statistics about such things (although it's just a question of subjective opinions)... I for one prefer German, although I can find appealing aspects in most languages (especially in music).

    I think them going for English has more to do with this idea that it'll bring you more success in ESC though rather than a compromise, but their ESC track-record proves that it's a false assumption... actually I think dropping the English for a while could be better for them, but then again it all depends on the songs of course... but as I pointed out, atleast for me personally, my fav from each of the last 3 selections was a non-English entry... and I actually think all of those could have faired better than what they ended up sending

    May I ask why? The only entries (partly) in French of the last ten years that were somewhat liked by the audience are We are the winners and Allez ola olé. I'm not saying the others flopped because they were in French but apparently and in contrast to some common belief the sound of the language alone does not seem to be a help either.

    English is by far the worst option though for a country with four national languages.

    I wont even suggest artist. They just need to give their artist a better staging. I might get stones from this but still think You and me is a good song but their presentation.... they just stand there...... their song is intense and they just stand there.....Also their background look like its from Saw movie.

    Oh God ! And then you wonder why French speaking Switzerland would have the upper hand on Swiss selection ???? Because the Alemanish are there...

    And, come on, the last french speaking Swiss who entered Eurovision is... Kathy Leander in 1996... So it's time for Romandie because Romandie rules !

    Oesch's die Dritten applied for the NF in 2011 but got rejected through the online selection method.

    Switzerland have very good developed club music scene. So, why they don't pick any artist which are representing this trend ?
