Early this morning, German broadcaster NDR announced seven out of eight acts that will compete in Unser Song für Österreich (German national final).
We will have to wait for more than a month to know the 8th artist. The wildcard act will be selected in a Club Concert on 19th February. In this concert, young promising artists will try to impress the German broadcaster to take them on the competition. Last year Elaiza was the wildcard that eventually won the right to represent Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest.
The German national final will take place on 5 March in Hanover Arena. The format of the national final remains unchanged as each artist will perform two songs. The winner of Unser Song für Österreich will sing in the Eurovision grand final, since Germany is part of the Big-Five and thus automatically qualifies to the final.
The 7 finalists are:
- Alexa Feser
- Mrs. Greenbird
- Andreas Kümmert
- Noize Generation
