Recently, Germany’s national broadcaster confirmed to ESCToday that ARD will participate in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest 2025 next May in Switzerland. ARD is a collective of multiple regional broadcasters across the country. Since 1996, NDR has been in charge of handling the selection of the representatives for Eurovision. Due to concerns over Germany’s underwhelming results in the contest for a nation with high expectation and a diverse music scene, speculation had mounted that NDR would no longer hold that responsibility. Many national newspapers, such as BILD, believed that MDR may be interested in bringing a more commercial tone to the selection process.

However, ESC Kompakt have now ended those rumours with the confirmation that NDR will remain in charge of selecting the artist and song for Eurovision 2025. As yet, there are no details on what the method of selection will be. Since 2022 the German representatives have been selected using a national final.
