Talk of Unser Song Für Österreich is getting hotter by the minute, and today German brocadaster NDR added even more heat to the fire when it revealed the 7 professional acts who who will fight for the ticket to Vienna on 5 March. They’ll do battle with each other — and with an eighth “wildcard” act, chosen from a field of lesser-known artists in February. NDR Entertainment Coordinator Thomas Schreiber described the pre-selection for the 7 acts as an “intense battle”.
First Seven Artists for “Unser Song für Österreich”
- Alexa Feser
- Mrs. Greenbird
- Andreas Kümmert
- Noize Generation

– Andreas Kümmert (the Voice-winner)
– Laing (2nd place in the Bundesvision Song Contest?)
I think that Laing can be a very good choice. I really hope they have a strong song.
