Switzerland entered the Eurovision Song Contest 1992 with Daisy Auvray and the song "Mister Music Man".

National final[edit]

The Swiss broadcaster, SRG SSR idée suisse, hosted a national final to select the Swiss entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 1992, held in Malmö, Sweden. The contest was held at the Palazzo dei Congressi in Lugano on 23 February, hosted by Alessandra Marchese. 10 songs competed, with the winner decided through the votes of 3 regional juries, an expert jury and a press jury.

The winner of the contest was Geraldine Olivier with the song "Soleil, soleil". However after the contest the song was disqualified after it was revealed that the song was inputted into the French-speaking broadcaster, Télévision Suisse Romande (TSR), for their selection for the contest with French lyrics and was rejected, before being entered into the German-speaking broadcaster, Schweizer Fernsehen (SF), and their selection for the contest with German lyrics and accepted. Therefore the song that came second, "Mister Music Man" by Daisy Auvray went to Malmö for Switzerland. "Mister Music Man" was composed by Gordon Dent.
