The Lovebugs were chosen from 55 singers and groups who submitted songs to Swiss television.

A spokesman for the public broadcaster said the song to be performed by the five-man band would be announced in the middle of February.

Eurovision is one of the most watched, non-sporting events in the world.

However, Swiss entries have fared poorly in recent years when the winners have usually come from eastern Europe.

A rule change this year will mean that the winner will be chosen not only by television viewers but also by members of a jury made up of experts from each country entered in the contest.
