According to German radio station Bayern3 – which is part of the German broadcaster ARD), the country will choose its Eurovision 2022 act via a national selection – “Lied für Turin” (Eng: Song For Turin).
After 2 years of a complicated internal selection process, Germany returns to the format of national selection. The concept (as well as the name) is very similar to the ones in the years 2018 and 2019.
Since 2015, Germany has ended up in the bottom 2 places, 5 times out of 6 different occasions.
It might be a key factor for a change in the selection process.
The submission window is already open. Interested singers, composers, and singers will be able to submit their entries here.
Here are the main regulations:
- Singers must be at least 16 years old
- Artists can be soloists or groups with up to 6 members.
- The song shouldn’t be longer than three minutes.
- German citizenship isn’t mandatory!
A professional jury panel will listen to the submitted songs. 5 songs will be selected to participate in the televised song – “Lied für Turin“.
The public will be partly/ fully involved in determining the results of the national selection.
