Tonight, Germany is choosing its representative for the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Tel Aviv. Who will follow the steps of the successful Michael Schulte, who gave Germany a fourth place finish in Lisbon last year?
German broadcaster NDR have announced the six artists that will be taking part in the televised national selection ‘Unser Lied für Israel’ in February 2019. These artists were chosen after a round of auditions in Cologne in October.
Due to its success in 2017, German national broadcaster NDR has decided to stick to their gameplan for 2019, with the broadcaster looking for another 100 members to feature in the next Eurovision panel for the selection.
The last three years, Germany finished at the bottom of the scoreboard at the Eurovision Song Contest. But in 2018, Michael Schulte brought the country back to the top, with a fourth place for his song “You Let Me Walk Alone”.
