Sisters Eurovision 2019 Germany
Germany – S!sters

They were Germany’s Eurovision 2019 hopefuls in Tel Aviv. But unfortunately Europe didn’t back them. And in a newly published interview, Laurita Spinelli and Carlotta Truman confirmed that S!sters are no more.

Talking with BILD, the two look back at the past year and explain why they’re going their separate ways.

Germany’s S!sters announce split

Both are still at the early stages of their career. And neither one knows where she’s heading stylistically. Thus, they felt they needed space to proceed further on their respective musical journeys.

They finished second-to-last in the song contest with “Sister” only receiving 24 points. Only the United Kingdom placed lower.

But looking back, Carlotta stresses that’s she’s very grateful to have had the Eurovision experience with Laurita. Thus, the decision wasn’t taken at a certain point but rather came about organically.

Moreover, the two say that they gave their best at the contest and are thankful for the opportunity. Following Eurovision, they took some time off to reflect and spend time with their families and friends.

Eventually, both Laurita and Carlotta could think of returning to Eurovision sometime in the future — under the right circumstances.

For this year’s yet-to-be-announced German act, they recommend to only listen to your heart and do what you’re most comfortable with. They say that there are many people with different approaches on how to achieve the best finish possible. Therefore, it’s crucial to know where you stand.

The two stayed in touch since May. Looking at what’s ahead, the two hope to release more music as solo artists soon. Carlotta is continuing her Bachelor of Music in Hannover, while Laurita is busy in the studio.

What is your take on S!sters no longer working together? Could they fare better at the contest as solo artists? Let us know in the comments section down below!

…and I called it that this would happen. Not even a year ago they were announcing how they would “stay together forever”… yeah, sure. :/ German Eurovision fans have seen this story over and over again with the contestants of the preceding years. It takes an adorable amount of naivety not to have seen this coming. To quote Mikolas Josef, when the show is over and our participants have scored another Bottom Five result, our broadcaster NDR “dropped it like it’s hot”.

Aww I was hoping that they’d release a fun song before going their separate names. Too bad all we’ll remember them for is this sad song. All the best to them both!

It’s time to get rid of the Big 5. All it guarantees are subpar performances in the final. The UK in particular hasn’t sent anything good in years. There’s 40+ countries, the finances can’t be spread out a little different so that these countries are not guaranteed? Many of the non-guaranteed countries like Netherlands, Switzerland, Russia, Belgium have a lot of money too. I don’t get it.

I’m Spanish so I don’t know if I would support that idea. Without the money of those countries it would be impossible to keep Eurovision working. And we’re not talking only about money. Having those BIG FIVE in the final assure millions of viewers in the Grand Final otherway Eurovision wouldn’t have. Those are numbers that The Netherlands, Switzerland or Belgium aren’t able to provide.

Wrong. They will split the money differently across 40 countries, which will be tiny increased amounts. As far as the viewership, many of these countries like UK don’t take Eurovision seriously to begin with. If they send a quality act then the viewers will follow.

It’s time that you send quality acts and EARN your way into the final instead of buying your way into the final. I would love for Spain to make it every year based on the quality of the act.

Big 5 needs to go! All countries should earn their way into the final and not buy their way into the final!

The only people who defend the big 5 are from those countries that are afraid they would never qualify by sending songs like “sisters” every year. “Sisters” should not have been in the final!

I agree, but it wouldn’t work in principle. The cost will just be spread onto the other participating countries and this will cause the mass withdrawal of countries already tight on finance such as Bulgaria and San Marino

Do you know how much we are actually talking about? It’s actually not that much, only a few million. Have the bigger countries (netherlands, russia, switzerland, etc) pay a little more and that would take care of it. They could spread it out in a way that all countries could afford it and stay in. The current system is unfair to countries who have a good song and performance and get left out of the final in favor of “sisters.”

The attitude of the Big 5 – “we won’t pay unless we get a free pass to the final” – is fundamentally unfair

They were formed for Eurovision, so I’m not shocked, but I also balk at people saying they had no genuine connection to each other. Heck, after a couple months of constant work and promotion, they probably were closer than ever by the time they took the stage. Their song wasn’t awful, but it was never destined for great things either. I’m sad they were mocked, but they carried themselves well, and hopefully they’ve got great careers ahead of them.

I don’t think they faked their professional relationship with one another. They seem to respect one another, had fun, and were friendly during their journey to performing in Tel Aviv. All these may have ended but at least those moments were genuine to me. Even if they already knew that their songs were hated or made fun of.

And hijacking my comment to say it as well! Extra naughty! Fortunately Laurita and Carlotta can take it and hopefully come back stronger just to spite the comments.

*pretends to be shocked*

But honestly, it’s painfully obvious they formed for the sole purpose of doing eurovision. Their performance couldn’t have been less genuine. There was no heart or soul behind their formation.

They did their best and I enjoyed their performance, but the song was too bland. Good luck to them both.

I may be in the minority here, but I am really glad these two joined forces last year, to give one of my favorite Eurovision performances of all time. They are now separated, but “sister” will remain on my (and I am sure many others) Eurovision playlist for many years to come. Good luck to them on their solo careers. Shine like city lights, S!sters! 🙂

I had a feeling that they were pretending to be great friends, maybe just to fit this “girl power” and “women supporting each other” idea but in reality there was no chemistry between them whatsoever. That’s why their performance never felt genuine. I wish them luck in their solo careers.
