Germany – Unser Song für Österreich, Germany’s national selection show, has revealed the 1213 songs in the running for its wildcard place! The songs were submitted to the online platform and will eventually be reduced to just ten finalists that will take part in the Clubkonzert round on 19th February 2015 at 20.00hr (CET).
All of the wildcard contender songs can be listened to here.
Seven more acts (probably some of who are well known) will be revealed by German broadcaster NDR this Wednesday, 14th January.
The winner of the wildcard event will join the 7 named acts in a grand final on 5th March. You can buy tickets for the German final here. Last year’s wildcard, Elaiza, surprised many by winning the ticket to Copenhagen with ‘Is it right‘ and finished 18th on Eurovision Island in the 59th Eurovision Song Contest
Singer/songwriter, Andreas Bourani, had recorded this year’s anthem for Unser Song für Österreich called ‘Auf uns’. He said,
“The wild card is a unique opportunity for candidates to take part in the German national final and achieve both nationally and internationally an audience of millions. Elaiza have shown in the last year that the Wildcard has much more than an outside chance to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. It can be the start of a great career.“
So what delights can we expect from this year’s wildcards. The likes of this…
