On the 15th of December, Heilsarmee were crowned the winners of the Swiss national final, Die Grosse Entscheidungsshow. The group, who take their name from the Swiss branch of The Salvation Army consists of Sarah Breiter, Jonas Gygax, Katharina Hauri, Christoph Jakob, Emil Ramsauer and Michel Sterckx all of whom are members of The Salvation Army.

The group and their song You and Me beat other acts to win the Swiss ticket to Malmö and will represent Switzerland at one of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 semi finals.

The European Broadcasting Union have announced that the group will have to change their name before the contest as no names with political connotations can be used.
