19 songs qualified for the Swiss expert check: 10 songs qualified from the SRF/RTR online contest; 6 songs were selected by French-language RTS; and 3 songs were selected by Italian-language RSI. The acts performed their songs in front of an expert panel, with three artists from the SRF/RTR selection, two artists from RTS and one artist from RSI qualifying for the final.
Stéphanie Palazzo was initially selected as one of the two RTS qualifiers. However it was subsequently discovered that her song was released previously in 2013 under a French title. As such she was disqualified and was replaced by Kaceo in the final.
