These are tough times to be a German Eurovision fan.
But S!sters won’t give up after their 24th place finish. Just days after the grand final they’ve given their first response to the German broadcaster.
In an interview with German broadcaster NDR, S!sters’ Carlotta Truman and Laurita Spinelli gave their first reaction to the events of Saturday’s grand final.
For them the whole Eurovision bubble has been nothing but a great experience. Ever since their win at the German national final, they’ve been able to grow their bond and — most importantly — develop a friendship that will last for a long time.
The girls also point out that they gave their all and delivered their best live performance yet on the Eurovision stage.
And what do they have to say about zero points from the televoting? It turns out they weren’t even in the green room. They had instead taken a well-timed toilet break from the results.
For them, the Eurovision Song Contest isn’t about winning. It’s more of a general statement – “music unites all nations. In this competition there is no skin color, religion, no fights, just music.”
And what does the German broadcaster NDR have to say about the unsatisfying finish? NDR entertainment director Thomas Schreiber gave a brief statement on the grand final results:
Thanks to Carlotta and Laurita, they sang perfectly. They delivered a very sympathic, vivid and credible performance. (…) We did the same selection process as last year, which didn’t work this time around. So we really just have to see if it’s still the right way. Our hope was to build on the path we’ve been on with Michael Schulte.”
