This Friday, the last BIG5 country, Germany, will decide its entry for the upcoming Eurovision song contest in Tel-Aviv.
In the early stages of the pre-selection, out of 965 submissions, the German broadcast, NDR, selected 20 candidates to participate in 5 days music camp in order to write their Eurovision entries. 4 out of 6 songs chosen wrote during that music camp, and the 7th act Sisters (Carlotta Truman and Laurita) added to the lineup later as a wildcard.
Unser Lied für Israel show will be hosted by Barbara Schöneberger and Linda Zervakis. The winning song will be decided by 33.3% Eurovision panel (consists of 100 members selected by Simon, Kucher & Partners), 33.3% International Jury and 33.3% televote, like last year, televote results will be announced by ESC Executive Supervisor Jon Ola Sand.
The show interval act will include live performances by Eurovision Song Contest 2010 winner Lena, Revolverheld, Andreas Bourani, Udo Lindenberg, and 2018 representative Michael Schulte.
