Germany is getting ready for the Eurovision Song Contest — and it’s kicking its national selection into overdrive. Earlier in November, the German Broadcaster NDR revealed more details about the national final, including a hint at the date of the show. And now that Head of Delegation Christoph Pellander and NDR’s entertainment coordinator Thomas Schreiber are done touring the country and sizing up candidates, the German Eurovision team is ready to take your questions.

The German broadcaster will answer almost all of your questions — keep it clean, folks! — in a livestream on the German Eurovision website eurovision.de as well as on their official Facebook page on 8 January at 17:00 CET. You can send all the questions you want — whether that’s about the national final, when the songs will be released or about the goals NDR has for next year’s Eurovision Song Contest. You can send your questions now or text them during the livestream. We’ll be doing both.

Besides all of your questions, Christoph Pellander and Thomas Schreiber also will reveal more information about the national final including the date when the German final will be held.

If you don’t have any time to watch the livestream don’t worry! The livestream will get uploaded afterwards on eurovision.de. And we’ll also summarise the key points here.

Germany’s confirmed finalists

 

Germany has thus far confirmed six finalists. They are: Aly RyanBB ThomazLinus BruhnGregor Hägelelilly among clouds and Makeda.

The acts were selected by two juries. One jury was the Eurovision Panel, made up of 100 German fans, who were demographically selected to match the tastes of general Eurovision viewers. The other jury was a group of 20 international experts.

From 965 original entrants, the jury members viewed videos of the auditioning artists and whittled the number down to the six who will compete in the national final.

While these are the six acts that have been confirmed, there is a suggestion that there may be more to come. NDR has said that they are “currently in contact with other acts whose participation in the show is yet to be decided by the two juries.”

I don’t really understand the point of this livestream. If they want to give us the national final and song release dates, cant they just announce those dates directly? It’s like making an announcement for when you’re gonna announce the other announcement xD

Maybe they’re lonely and want some attention.

Not a question, more of a request: Please don’t repeat the dry spell of 2013-2017. Only 2015 was not entirely your fault.
