Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest

Germany is the nation that has taken part in the most Eurovision Song Contest finals, being present for every single edition except for 1996, where Leon’s “Planet Of Blue” failed to pass the preselection round present in that year. They have won twice, in 1982 with Nicole’s “Ein bißchen Frieden”, and in 2010 with Lena’s “Satellite”. Since 1999, they have been part of the “Big Five”, meaning that the German entry is always qualified for the Grand Final.

Since 2015, German fortunes have been on a somewhat downward turn. They have only escaped the bottom five in the Grand Final once in this time frame. This was in 2018 when Michael Schulte’s “You Let Me Walk Alone” finished 4th. In 2022, Malik Harris’ “Rockstars” became the 8th German entry to finish last in the Grand Final.
