Hallo, grüß dich und let’s do this! Tonight five young hopefuls compete in Unser Song 2017 for the right to represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest in May. With a YouTube star, a country singer, an alt rocker, a classical singer and a talent show starlet in the mix, viewers will be treated to thrills and spills and plenty of variety.
You can watch a live stream with English subtitles below.
UNSER SONG 2017 FORMAT
The show will take place at the Köln-Mülheim Studios and TV presenter Barbara Schöneberger is back on hosting duties for the third year in a row. Hopeful for a better result at Eurovision this year, NDR have given Unser Song 2017 a major shakeup.
First the five acts will perform a cover, after which only the three highest scoring acts will progress to a second round. Once there, they’ll each perform their version of the first German song candidate “Wildfire”. The best two will advance to a third round, where they’ll perform an alternative song “Perfect Life”.
Then the audience will pick their top two combinations and one of those will go on to Ukraine in May. The outcome will be determined solely by phone and SMS voting. As the UK’s Molly would say, power to the people!
