Wer wird gewinnen Unser Song für Malmö? It’s a question all of Germany is asking as twelve contestants prepare to battle it out for a chance to sing at Eurovision. If wiwibloggs’ readers are right, then Cascada, Ben Ivory or Betty Dittrich will come out on top.

Cascada, a staple of dance floors around the world, won our poll in a landslide, capturing 33% of all votes with the song “Glorious”. Many commenters on our site have described the song as “trash”. That may or may not be true. Regardless this just doesn’t sound like a Eurovision song to me. Did her fans skew our poll? Will they be enough to carry this through the German final?

Ben Ivory came second with his song “The Righteous Ones”. It earned 16.5% of all votes. William loves this song, but worries it is too edgy for Eurovision. Regardless it will become an anthem for gays everywhere: “We are the freaks/ We are the queers/ We are the suckers/ We are here….We are the Gods/ We are the stars/ We are the lovers who rule the arts…you can’t deny us. You can’t deny us.”

Betty Dittrich, who has one of the best preview videos we’ve ever seen, came third in our poll with 11.32% of the vote. Her song “Lalala” is a favourite of bloggers and we keeps bumping into people who love it. Perhaps she’s really the one to beat?

In any case, you can see the results of our poll below.

Sorry, I got some of that wrong: Cascada placed 3rd with the jury, but 1st with the televote, as well as 2nd in the radio vote.

Final results (33% each of radio/televote/jury, 1% unknown) I know only that LaBrassBanda got all 12s across the radio vote, and the jury placed Cascada 1st and gave 1pt to LaBrassBanda. 1 Cascada – Glorious (30 points) 2 LaBrassBanda – Nackert (23 points) 3 Söhne Mannheims – One Love (17 points) 4 Saint Lu – Craving (16 points) 4 Nica & Joe – Elevated (16 points) 6 Blitzkids mvt. – Heart On The Line (15 points) 7 Ben Ivory – The Righteous Ones (13 points) 8 Finn Martin – Change (12 points) 8 Betty Dittrich – Lalala (12 points) 10… Read more »

I initially enjoyed “Glorious” but I got bored with it after two more listens. I voted for Ben in this poll; it would be a nice boost for the queer community if he won, “The Righteous Ones” is a great anthem. But I am ready to bet that Cascada, backed by their army of fans, will win.

(Yes. I stubbornly maintain that Cascada is a group. I may be the only one?)

As a huge fan of her, I desperately want Cascada to WIN and represent Germany tonight, but part of me fear Ben Ivory will end up clinching it.

Any of the first three in WiWi’s poll would be a dream coming true. Unfortunately, I’m afraid it’ll be the dreadful Söhne Mannheims, who – for whatever reason – have an incredibly large fanbase in my tasteless home country. Eurovision fans (like myself) despise them, but the non-fans love them. And unfortunately, they outnumber us. I’m still hoping against hope the jury is going to vote them down and my personal favorite Betty Dittrich is going to fly our flag, and I’d be very happy with Cascada or Ben Ivory, too. But chances are small, really.

Ben Ivory is the righteous one! He should win this thing over Cascada…

I have a feeling that it will be between Cascada (likely televoting favourite) and Betty Dittrich (probable jury favourite). My personal favourite is Ben Ivory, but I fear that his song and presentation are too out there for the casual viewer, and he doesn’t really stand a chance in winning :(. Also, it must be said that a number of acts who did badly in this poll – such as Söhne Mannheims and LaBrassBanda are hugely popular in Germany, and cannot be ruled out for victory either. I get the feeling that whatever the result ends up being – it… Read more »

Well said, Zolan. I completely agree with you. However, I really have no idea who will win. I suspect it will be one of my least favorites. I’m rooting for Cascada, personally, even though their song is quite bland, to my ears. I would really like to see what happens if they win. They still have a lot of loyal fans (although I’d argue most of them are international fans and perhaps not German…).

It is very close in my mind. Even the entries lowest in this poll could pick up a groundswell of unexpected support. My dubious intuition about who will win is very mid-table: Blitzkids Mvt., Mia Diekow, Saint Lu, Mobilée.
I don’t get the high appeal of “Lalala.” Nice video, but it’s no “Caroban.”

One doesn’t have to be gay to love “The Righteous Ones”, although “we are the queers” limits its anthemic appeal even more than “I love Belarus” did.

“Glorious” colours neatly within the lines, which is nice, but it’s too obvious to bother listening to. It’s not trash, it’s just redundant.

I totaly love Ben Ivorys Song. (i was straight onto i tunes to download one of his other song “better love”, totally awesome – well you have to support serious talent in Eurovision right?) Yeah, its a bit to edgy for Eurovision, but i think its bang on and right now and basically represents contempory western Europe well as did the Russian Grannys last year highlighted a different kind of culture. Gut feeling is Glorious will win, I mean I like it, but i kind of get board towards the end. Somehow i compare it to Euphoria, and Loreen has… Read more »
