National final[edit]

The Swiss broadcaster, SRG SSR idée suisse, hosted a national final to select the Swiss entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2002, held in Tallinn, Estonia. Switzerland were returning to the contest after being relegated from the 2001 contest after Jane Bogaert with "La vita cos'e" came 20th.

The contest was held at the Garage Music in Bellinzona on 2 February, hosted by Milena Martelli.. Eight songs competed, with the winner decided through two rounds of telkevoting, the first to select the top three, with the second selecting the winner.

The winner of the contest was Francine Jordi with the song "Dans le jardin de mon âme", receiving 41.1% of the final televote. She went on to represent Switzerland in Tallinn.
