Germany: Michael Schulte wins Unser Lied für Lissabon with “You Let Me Walk Alone”


Ryk brought a dancer on top of a piano, Ivy set the stage on fire, Natia strutted the catwalk, voXXclub brought Baverian joy and Xavier sang in front of a series of moving mirrors.

But in the end it was Michael Schulte who soared above the competition to win Germany’s Unser Lied für Lissabon with “You Let Me Walk Alone”. Michael touched audiences with his song, which is a tribute to his dad who passed away 13 years ago. His performance saw him stand in front of a screen that displayed images of people with their dads, as well as some of the lyrics from the song.

The winner was decided by the televoting German public, an international jury which included Ruth Lorenzo and Margaret Berger, plus the ‘Europe panel’ consisting of German Eurovision fans from across Europe.

Michael gained top marks from all three, becoming the clear winner with an eleven point lead over Xavier Darcy in second place.
