Thomas Schreiber, the Head of Entertainment for German broadcaster NDR, has announced that more news concerning Germany’s selection for Rotterdam will be coming on 10th February. Thomas posted the news on his private Twitter account this afternoon.
News about “Unser Lied für Rotterdam”?
We already know that the German TV channel, One, will broadcast a show on 27th February, titled “Unser Lied für Rotterdam”, however, it has not been made clear whether this show is a national selection or a song presentation show.
The news that is now revealed to be landing on 10th February is most likely to be about “Unser Lied für Rotterdam” as Thomas Schreiber posted his tweet alongside a picture of the ULfR host, Barbara Schöneberger.
The tweet, posted by Schreiber, reads:
Whoa – it’s already February… Countdown running: more in 9 days!– Thomas Schreiber, on Twitter (translated into English)
NDR originally announced that more news about the German selection would be revealed in late January. However, the only news announced in late January was the fact that ONE would broadcast a German “selection” show on 27th February.
Germany at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest
Last year, Germany was represented by S!sters and their song, “Sister”. The duo finished in 25th place with 24 points. They also infamously scored zero points in the televoting.
The United Kingdom – who, like Germany, are a member of the Big 5 – were the only country to finish lower than the Germans. Michael Rice’s “Bigger Than Us”, finished in last place but did pick up points from the jury vote and televoting.
What are you hoping the news is from Germany? Do you have any hopes for an artist?
