Tonight in Germany it was time for the Clubkonzert, the wildcard round of Unser Song für Österreich. Ten unknown artists performed their songs but only one could win the wildcard. In the end, Ann Sophie and the song “Jump the Gun” won over televoters and earned a spot in the final on 5 March!

ANN SOPHIE – JUMP THE GUN

Ann Sophie (24) was born in London and grew up mainly in Hamburg. She began studying ballet at 4, and knew at 14 that she wanted to be a singer. At 20, she moved to New York and completed a two-year acting course at the Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute. She also started her music career singing in bars and eventually took on her first, self-penned songs. In September 2012, Ann Sophie followed that up with her first album. After three years in the US, she moved back to Hamburg and now plays with her band regularly in clubs. Yes, she’s a woman of the night…

What a horrible Clubconzert! I’m very disapointed NDR! ARD and NDR should go back to cooperation with ProSieben! They are more modern with them! But since 2014 our national selection isn’t my favourite national selection! I don’t watch it last year! Also because I don’t like Barbara Schöneberger! She is really horrible I think! For this year I hope Noize Generation will send good songs because I reallly like EDM! We will see what will happen in my country!

Hey everyone,
for all of the German speakers on this website. I just published my first Eurovision related article about the Clubkonzert.

Maybe you’d like to take a look at it.

I really doubt she will even go through to the 2nd round (8 to 4). The competition is strong this year.

I didn’t even see performance nr 8 cause after 7 i got shocked because of what ‘Mar’ says it was like an open mic,.. I hope Fahrenhaidt and Satin Circus and the DJ will do well. Rooting for them

I’m rooting for this song, it’s really good. As an EDM fan, I’m waiting for Noize Generation to put something amazing out there and win it all! So, Ann or Noize to win!

Ann was in a league of her own tonight, none of the other participants came close. If I didn’t know better I would think it was open mic night at the karaoke bar or something.
I actually wouldn’t mind seeing this in Vienna, although it’s very unlikely.

By the way,the fact that Germans are so much excited & interested about EuroVision Song Contest and every year millions of people in whole Germany are gathered in bars and having parties in their houses all watching the grand finale show like its the World Soccer Cup of Brazil taking the Vision so seriously its pretty positive and impressive…It makes you wonder really about the actual wayyy less interest that other major Europeans countries have about Vision like France Italia or even UK..

Ok…To be honest i did not like her song but her perfomance was good…She had an air of confidence performing it and overall a strong lively presence…She was the one that made the song and not the song her….So that must was the actual reason that she won i guess.. Since Ann Sophie will compete in US4O with a second song hopefully that one will be better than this one.. La Brassbanda —> 1 point…! 😛 😛 ahahaha… 🙂 i still remember that hilarious moment from Unser Song 4 Malmo back in 2013… 😛 🙂 That US4 was very succesful… Read more »

I’m so disappointed with the show… another proof that NDR should give away Eurovision to another broadcaster that knows how to do it. There were a lot of talents applying for this show, but NDR chose the most boring ones or those who can’t sing.
The winner, however, is okay…but I don’t think she will be on top in Hanover, like Elaiza was last year. Ann Sophie’s song is simply not strong enough, even though she has a great stage presence.

I was rooting 4 the other Sophie actually…But anyway..
She actually came 5th from the 10 which is not bad at all! Good 4 her.. 🙂
We will see if the lucky wild card qualifier can win Deutchland’s Unser Song 4 Vienna 4 once again…
I find it unfair though that from all these countless candidate acts only a single one(!) took the golden ticket 4 the final…But whatever..

This is such a catchy song. The chorus is especially sticky. Not only that, but Ann Sophie is a confident performer, which a lot of the other contestants didn’t have.
