Concours Eurovision is the SwissEurovision national selection. This has been held on an irregular basis since 1956. During the 1980s, the contest tended to have ten participating songs - three in French, three in German, three in Italian and one in Romansch.
In 2005 the show was indefinitely cancelled when SRG SSR started to stage internal selection contests. For the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 a new open selection format called Die grosse Entscheidungs Show was established. This new show is being held annually since then.
