The very first winning country at the Eurovision Song Contest, Switzerland, will hold their national final on 1st February 2014.  The national final is a linked between four broadcasters in Switzerland that are the Swiss-German broadcaster Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF), the Swiss-French broadcaster Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS), the Swiss-Italian broadcaster Radiotelevisione Svizzera (RSI) and the Swiss-Romansh broadcaster Radiotelevisiun Svizra Rumantscha (RTR).

In a diffentiated approach to the one that has been used in recent years, a set of experts will now be called upon in order to ascertain the quality of the entries as selected by either the general public or another professional panel of judges. For example, with regards to the Swiss-Italian broadcaster, one well known figure was Paolo Meneguzzi whose Era Stupendo at the 2008 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest was a clear fan favourite, unfortunately falling at the first hurdle.
