Germany – Tonight sees the German national final take place to select the country’s representative for Kyiv. All of the tracks have been released on Spotify in advance of tonight’s TV show. Each act will sing a cover version initially and 3 of the 5 acts will go through to the next round.
5 artists have been chosen internally for the final:
- Axel Feige
- Felicia Lu Kürbiß
- Helene Nissen
- Yosefin Buohler
The three successful candidates after the cover version round will then sing either ‘Perfect life‘ or ‘Wildfire‘, the two songs in the running to be performed in Kyiv.
One more act will be eliminated and the two remaining acts will then sing the other song that they have not already performed out of ‘Perfect life‘ or ‘Wildfire‘.
At this stage there are 4 possibilities left of artist / song combination and everyone will be very confused. It makes Lithuania seem very straight forward in comparison. Voters can vote for the artist and song they like best and the top two face off. So you could have two artists singing the same song e.g. ‘Perfect life‘, or a different song each. Or the same artist being the sole contender singing both songs. Make sense?
Oh and then they throw a jury in too.
In between the confusion, former Eurovision winners Nicole (1982), Ruslana (2004) & Conchita Wurst (2014) will perform a Eurovision medley. Everyone loves a good Eurovision medley, don’t they?
You can watch it from 20:15 (CET) on the Official German Eurovision Website.
