Germany had to decide between six candidates and the viewes chose Malik Harris to represent its country with his song Rockstars. Last time Germany picked its representative through a national final was in 2019.
Eventhough he was not the winner of the online voting, Malik Harris got to the top through the televoting and will represent Germany at this years Eurovision Song Contest in Turin. His warm and melancholic chorus mixed with rapping in the verses convinced the viewers at home during the show. Mael & Jonas won the online voting but were only in third place in the televoting which made them land into the second place overall. Our readers’ fan favourite Felicia Lu got into fourth place.
The vote was decided by public vote alone. These votes were divided into two constituencies. The first is the televote consisting of phone and SMS votes cast on the night. The second is online votes, which had been coming in for 5 days.

Malik Harris is a German-American pop singer, rapper and songwriter. Days before he knew that he actually would win the German national final, he said:
“I’d be so proud to represent Germany with my music on an international stage. In Rockstars, I lay my feelings bare, and I can’t wait to perform the song live and share it with a big audience. It’s a song that has incredible personal significance for me and offers a glimmer of hope in these difficult times, while also showing people that we’re all in the same boat.”
Germany had some great interval acts and Eurovision stars on its show on that night. Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita Wurst and old German representatives Jane Comerford and Gitte Haenning sang a medley of various Eurovision songs. After ‘No No Never’, ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’ and ‘Euphoria’ they also sang ‘Ein bisschen Frieden – A little hope’ which made Germany win the contest back in 1982 and is now more relevant then ever in these difficult times.
However, probably the most emotional impact had Jamala singing her song ‘1944’. She entered and left the stage with tears and a Ukrainan flag. During an interview with the show host Barbara Schöneberger she was very thankful to be the big voice for so many Ukrainan people.
