Eurovision.de finally has given us the date when the seven “nationally well-known artists” for Unser Song für Österreich will be announced — and it’s sooner than you think! Officials in Germany will reveal the list on Wednesday, January 14. The eighth “wildcard” act will be chosen in a club concert, taking place in Hamburg, on February 19. As we all know, last year’s wildcard winner Elaiza beat some of Germany’s biggest stars in last year’s final and represented Germany in Copenhagen.
The seven artists have been chosen by representatives from German broadcaster NDR, the production company Brainpool and the record labels Sony, Universal and Warner, together with some independent labels and radio stations.
The big final of Unser Song für Österreich will take place in Hannover on March 5.
We have already named some of the artists we would like to see performing in Hannover, but who do you want to see among the seven? Let us know in the comments section below.
