They’re the big five country who have had highs and lows at Eurovision over recent years. Now, Germany are set to reveal more about their plans for Eurovision 2020 on February 10th.

Though, this isn’t the first time the German broadcaster NDR have promised a Eurovision-related announcement in 2020. As we reported almost three weeks ago, NDR initially announced that more news about the German act would come by the end of January – that didn’t happen.

However, posting on Twitter on February 1st, the broadcaster apologised for the delay and promised news in the near future:

The end of January is over, we have the feeling that we have forgotten something .. 🤔

Sorry, really. There will be more information on February 10th. Promised! 🙏

Unser Lied für Rotterdam reported for February 27th

It still is unclear what the German broadcaster will reveal and what they might show to the waiting public.

Germany’s broadcaster NDR is still very quiet about who – or who not – will represent the country at Eurovision 2020. There has also been no official information about how the German act will be selected – will they go with a national final like in the last few years or will they pick internally?

Reports at the end of January suggested that Unser Lied für Rotterdam will take place on February 27th at 21:30 local time. Since the running time of the show is set to only last about 45 minutes, it hints that this may be the presentation of an internally selected song/artist.

However, it is still unclear how this presentation show will work. It is reported that it won’t be aired live, but instead be broadcast as “a time-delayed transmission from Hamburg”.

How will Germany select its act for Eurovision 2020?

The news follows much speculation of just how Germany is going to select its act for Rotterdam. Compared to last year, details about the 2020 national final are scarce.

One year ago, NDR had already confirmed that it would use a national final, how the show would workwho the competing acts were and even who the interval act was. This year: crickets.

In September, NDR’s partner Digame confirmed that it would again be involved with the selection process. This would include coordinating the Eurovision Panel — a group of specially selected Eurovision fans, and a jury of 20 experts.

However, while in 2019, the broadcaster had shared numerous updates of the process, there have been no such updates this time. We do know that some fans have received rejection letters after applying to be on the panel, suggesting that at least something is going on behind the scenes.

What are you expecting for the presentation show? Who do you want to see represent Germany at Eurovision 2020? Let us know in the comment section below!

So it’s “the Barbara year”? 😀
Loving the subtle dream that the article’s photograph implies.
I suppose the obvious alternative would have been to use an Aly Ryan photograph.

Im German and i bet it’s Daniel Schumacher or Aly Ryan.
Because Daniel is now following/followed by a lot of Eurovision things on Instagram and Aly obv said that she only will go for Germany when they chose her internally. Maybe they changed their mind now and took her.

It would be hilarious. After all the Aly Ryan jokes. But Daniel Schuhmacher? Really? They must be really desperate to find someone, if that’s true.

I hope for Aly Ryan ……… because Daniel Schumacher gives me nothing.

I think I’d regain a bit of respect for Aly if she came full circle and went back to her homeland. Unless she went for San Marino. That’d be fine too.

This is the most disorganised I’ve ever seen NDR! They said it would be the end of January and now changed it to the 10th!

I’ve looked at the times where they have been internal and they didn’t exactly get the best of results!

Everything is possible if you are as desperate as the “NDR” .

A 45 minute show could be an artist and song reveal and a lot of chit chat with the song composers and artist

OR

It could be an internally selected artist presenting two/three songs competing to be the German song and a televote window of 15-20 minutes !

They’ve had numerous talented artists not get selected in their NFs in the last few years. At worse, they should revisit one of them.

Germany must hurry if they want to find Aly Ryan still free.

I understand the lack of enthusiasm… They’ve tried national selections and they’ve tried internal selections — both with mixed results.

On Twitter, Kim Petras has very vocally denied the rumour that she would be representing Germany, “No and no and hell no.”

It’s unusual for Germany to be this secretive about their selection process. Usually the info is out by the time the previous year’s contest has wrapped up. What do you suppose is up their sleeves for 2020?
(Also: really flattering picture of Barbora you picked there. Crazy eyes and everything.)

She’s looking right into your soul. Kinda like Leonora last year. They could compete in a staring contest against each other.
