These are the eight acts now confirmed for Eurovision Song Contest – The German Final 2024. Their songs are now available on all major streaming platforms

GALANT


Behind GALANT is a duo from southern Germany, consisting of 26-year-old Mona from Munich and 29-year-old Paul from Mannheim. As an electropop group with influences from the „Neue Deutsche Welle“, GALANT draws inspiration from the greats of that era. Amused by the banality of things, GALANT, with their mix of rap and melodies, mock the commercialism of the arts and try to disrupt conventions themselves. For GALANT, the ESC offers a unique opportunity to showcase their creative vision as a symbol of diversity and uniqueness in the modern electropop scene. With their song “Katze” (“Cat”), GALANT describes how people distance themselves from their original essence after traumatic experiences, becoming increasingly unapproachable and distant for self-protection, usually without realizing it. The cat represents a person who has completely lost themselves over the years. “We believe in the universal language of music and its ability to overcome boundaries. Our song and performance aim not only to entertain but also to convey a message of freedom, self-acceptance, and cultural exchange.”

Isaak

After initial musical experiences in a band, Isaak Guderian from a small town called Espelkamp quickly evolves into a promising singer-songwriter. Even during his school days, he captivates people as a street musician with his exceptional voice, showcases his talent in the TV casting show “X Factor” in 2011 in front of a million viewers, and wins the digital talent show “Show your Talent” in 2021. His singing repertoire ranges from melancholic ballads to powerful arrangements challenging the entire vocal range. Isaak’s song “Always on the run” is an example of how the emotional depths and exhilarating highs of a song can take listeners on a unique musical journey. The 28-year-old receives significant support from his family, wife, and two children.

“Music is the only refuge where I can be who I am. Here, everything is allowed. No labels, no system, no order. Pure emotions, a playground not only for children. And everyone can understand it – whether it’s in their language or not.”

Leona

Her stepfather, Frank Rühmann, is the one who instils confidence and courage in Leona from a young age to pursue a professional music career. The young resident of Hamburg decided shortly after graduating: there is only music and no Plan B! The 20-year-old discovered the opportunities offered by the vast world of social media early on and quickly built a substantial fan base with her music on various platforms. Even well-known musicians take notice: Pop star Max Giesinger records a song with her and invites her to join him on stage at one of his concerts for a joint performance. Leona showcases the great potential of her voice at the German ESC Final with her emotional ballad “Undream You” where she narrates a lost love. “I dreamed of standing on the ESC stage since I was a little child. I want to touch more hearts with my music and bring the victory back to Germany!”

Bodine Monet

Bodine Monet is an artist from Zandvoort, Netherlands, who has found her life’s purpose in music. At the age of 14, she reaches the finals of the German music casting show “The Voice Kids” and subsequently participates in many other TV talent shows. Today, the 23-year-old focuses exclusively on her work as a singer-songwriter, collaborating with renowned musicians worldwide. Her foundation for this is also her music studies at the Conservatorium Haarlem. The singer with Canadian roots came into contact with the ESC through her parents and wants to represent Germany at the ESC due to her close relationship with her neighbouring country. With her song “Tears like rain,” she wants to convey an important message: it is crucial to find the strength and ability to detach oneself from toxic influences! One should dare to seize new happiness, grow beyond the negative past together, and inspire each other.

“As a singer of power ballads, I wished for nothing more than to stand on the stage of the
Eurovision Song Contest myself. I am determined to fulfil my dream this year, tell my story, and make the little girl in me proud.”

Max Mutzke

Max Mutzke, a well-known German ESC figure, competes in the preliminary decision: 20 years ago, the now 42-year-old won the German preliminary decision for the Eurovision Song Contest and secured 8th place at the ESC final in Istanbul. With his final song “Can’t Wait Until Tonight” written by Stefan Raab, he directly entered the top spot on the German charts and established himself in the German music scene as a popular singer and songwriter. Coming from an artistically inclined family, Max Mutzke discovered his love for music early on and developed a broad repertoire ranging from pop and rock to soul and funk, and jazz. On the occasion of his 20th stage anniversary, the native Black Forest resident wants to represent Germany again at the ESC final in Malmö. His song “Forever Strong” aims to pave the way as a plea for hope. Max Mutzke’s message: one should always try to remain strong at heart and be a lighthouse for people, radiating good arguments to others.

“Experiencing last year’s ESC in Liverpool as a guest on the ARD Countdown Show was a revelation for me. I was fascinated by the atmosphere, how much people love this event. With this perspective on the competition and my development in recent years, I find it beautiful to be back at the ESC. I want to take advantage of this momentum, coming back after exactly 20 years.”

Marie Reim


Marie Reim, the daughter of Schlager star Michelle and singer legend Matthias Reim, embarks on a rising career as a Schlager singer to conquer the German final of the ESC. Inspired by her mother’s successful participation in the ESC final in 2001 in Copenhagen, where she reached 8th place, the 23-year old dreams of bringing Germany back to the forefront of the competition with a Schlager song. The Düsseldorf resident already has plenty of stage experience, making her first major TV appearance at the age of twelve in a show hosted by Florian Silbereisen. Her autobiographical song “Naiv” describes the emotional rollercoaster of trying to rearrange life after a broken love, only to discard the resolutions when entering a new love.


“I think Schlager-music fits the ESC like a glove. I am ready to show people that Schlager can be charming, fresh, and a bit sexy in this competition. I believe my mother will simply be incredibly proud to see that I am doing my best to carry on her ESC legacy.”

NinetyNine


NinetyNine is a singer-songwriter right from the heart of Hamburg. The unconventional stage name of this newcomer, born Daniel Leon Schmidt (24), is explained by his birth year 1999 and his height of 1.99 meters. The musician is a multi-instrumentalist and works as a successful songwriter. At the age of 19, he signs a contract with a major music publisher, using his songwriting talent for many renowned artists. NinetyNine describes his music as timeless pop with influences and inspiration from the indie scene and vintage rock. Since early 2023, NinetyNine has released six singles, gaining success on all major streaming platforms. With his current single “Love on a Budget,” NinetyNine questions the society of excess at the German ESC Final: Why does it always have to be luxury and glitter? One should have butterflies in the stomach rather than dollar signs in the eyes. Thus, with his “song about great love with little money,” he puts a special message in focus.

“I grew up in a musician family, stand on stage, and write songs since I can remember. It would be a great dream to sing to millions of people straight to the heart with a song about great love on the world’s biggest stage”

Ryk

At the age of five, Rick Jurthe, alias Ryk from Bad Nenndorf in Lower Saxony, sits at a piano from his grandfather for the first time, and a year later, his mother sends him to lessons with a strict Russian piano teacher. However, it doesn’t stop at pure instrumental music: At the age of 13, Ryk writes his first song. He is interested in the music of Shakira, admires Duncan James of “Blue” watches music videos on MTV, and the keyboard in his own studio witnesses the creation of the first recordings. Ryk works subsequently as a songwriter, composer, and music producer for various projects, including many live entertainment events such as theater and circus productions. In 2018, he performs at the German ESC preliminary decision Unser Lied für Lissabon and reaches third place. This year, the 34-year-old is making another attempt and wants to captivate the hearts of ESC fans with his contribution “Oh Boy.”

“My fascination for the competition is unbroken. My passion for grand, epic moments is
actually made for the ESC. I strive to write that one song and create that one staging that captivates millions of people in front of the screen.”

In the Docutainment series “Ich will zum ESC!” (“I want to go to the ESC!”), where the ninth act for the German Final is found, the two coaches Conchita Wurst and Rea Garvey accompany talented hopefuls who applied as singing talents this year to get a step closer to their dream and participate in the preliminary decision. The series starts on Thursday, January 25th, in the ARD Mediathek. Episodes 1 to 5 can also be seen on Das Erste from 27 January, as well as time-delayed on hr-Fernsehen and rbb Fernsehen.

The representative for Germany at the ESC Final in Malmö will be decided at the German preliminary decision on February 16th through a voting process. The audience and international expert juries each contribute half of the points. TikTok will accompany the preliminary decision with exciting backstage videos.

Tickets for “Eurovision Song Contest – The German Final 2024” are available for €34.90 + €3 system fee per order on https://tvtickets.de/Das-deutsche-Finale.php

William. Did you eat something special that you was able to stop Oh Boy because you think it is boring or something?

I am really disappointed about Deban and William in the reaction video.

Ok. But fortunately others have better taste, like Alesia Michelle, Roy and so on

Most of the songs are very average or just utterly boring but – Christ! – when the last song is on the two boys just can’t shut up and talk non-stop so miss out on a potentially quite powerful song. ‘Oh Boy’ needs to be properly listened to and the rather enigmatic text be understood. ‘Zero points’ for our two hosts.

Ryk is another english flop ballad. Boring and it’s a shame, some dumb ppl without taste likes it now like LOTL last year and it was me to say the song will get last. I got death mails but in the end I was right again.

Yes, because insulting people will help them to like you… We all have our own tastes, and we all have been right at moments and wrong at others. Like you, I felt that Lord of the Lost was going to flop (even though I was really impressed by their live in Liverpool). This year I feel Ryk could make a big impression and bring a good result for Germany so at least one of us will be wrong if he goes to Malmö. On the other hand, I think Marie Reim has the worst song in this selection. Definitely not… Read more »

I’ve played the songs to a number of my friends who aren’t Eurovision fans, and their opinions are unanimous: they love Bodine Monet and Ryk. And I couldn’t agree more. In my opinion, these are the two songs that can take Germany into the top 10.

If Ryk can pull a stellar vocal on the night, he will be one of the front-runners with the jury vote for sure.

None of the songs are bad. In fact, they are pretty solid. Once again with Germany, they do feel a bit safe and there’s not an obvious, “this couldn’t be in the bottom five” type song. Ryk’s is the quality entry for me, and he is one of the best two vocalists for sure.

Ryk has a very interesting and atmospheric song, at some points even gave me goosebumps. If Germany does not play a trick like they did in 2019 (as they actually usually do), it can definitely bring the country finally the good result.

I think that’s what got me most of all, actually.

I’m a stickler for lyrics, yet I had no clue or even interest over what it was about at all on my first listens.

I didn’t even consider those until the 5th listen one bit, it’s all so pretty and tonally intriguing that reading up on the lyrics being that of a very run of the mill song about love at no point impeded upon my enjoyment of it. And it’s at least artistic and very superfluous about the meaning so it doesn’t just feel too cheesy for me.

Coming from a family where everyone else listens to just the melody and doesn’t care as much about the lyrics, songs like this remind me exactly why sometimes lyrics are unnecessary and what the voice and sounds convey matters much more and that’s why I’m so in love with it immediately.

I see what you mean. For me, not understanding the language can actually be helpful. It’s easier to just project my own feelings onto the emotion coming from the vocals. I become immune to banal lyrics. In this instance, I suppose it is just unfortunate for me that I understand English.

Not as diverse or good as last year but there are some voices that stand out to me. Having trouble deciding my rankings but I think Ryk could potentially put on a jury winning show! Also, ANOTHER cat song!

Ryk’s song sounds like it comes from the heart, unlike a lot of the songs here. It sounds like it potentially could surprise everyone with its personal touch like ‘You Let Me Walk Alone’ did in 2018!

GALANT’s “Katze” seems like the best choice for me. I believe that none of these songs would make the top 10, but Katze could be used for some funky staging, maybe that will save us from the last spot..

I’m very concerned by some comments here and the tastes of some people but I guess it’s a point on which we can’t really argue. I’m still gonna do it. First, the people who say that Katze is the best option here make me wonder what’s going on inside their head. And when they’re German I definitely understand why Germany sticks to the last place. Secund, stop with the word bland. I would definitely understand the use of the word if the songs were trash pop but it’s not the case. And stop swearing by originality to define the quality… Read more »

I judge a song on the song, not qualification chances or top ten placing. Portugal 2019 was in no way a failure. The only failure was the judgement of the juries and televoters. Results aren’t everything! Most of these songs fail in both regards, though.

Leona could be a moment on stage, very intimate, it would stand out. I also like the modern folk of Bodine. Ryk nice voice very Gjon’s tears style so it could work, I feel the song a bit overproduced personally, it didn’t grab me, but could work definetely.

My current favourite is the 9th entrant.

This is clearly an attempt at humour and I mean no malice against any of the contestants or their fans. My main feeling after listening to all the songs is that there is nothing particularly compelling. I think I may like Galant the most, but this could change on future listens.

There are a couple of nice songs here in “Oh Boy” and “Undream You” that probably won’t be too popular in the fandom but seem like they’d have enough jury appeal to get Germany out of the basement.

Some okay songs in there, nothing too bad but still another rather weak selection for Germany imo. Under certain circumstances, it could easily become another last place, since last place isn’t necessarily the worst, but often a bland or mediocre one. I think Leona is quite good. Ryk probably was the best when he first tried, not feeling this one. Marie Reim has such immature lyrics it hurts.

I love his voice (the vibrato). But the instrumentation is weird. This sounds like it should be a song with choir and orchestra but the way it is now it sounds like he’s singing from a tunnel. Maybe they could change it up. It needs more drama in the orchestration.

I suppose it would. Obvious lust would be better, but this would do. I’m not actually sure who he is singing to. “Oh boy, I need your love” fits the bill nicely, but then is diluted by other lyrics that confuse me. Is he singing to his younger self? “I can feel that the ocean is deep” That’s nice. “I feel the rhythm of changes” Okay. “I need your house in the shadows” What?

A picture of a literal child on the cover doesn’t help.

Will have to wait for the live performances and stagings. Right now looks like Isaak’s song has the most potential. But strategically there probably will be almost no male ballads in the ESC Finals this year so maybe that will stand out more.

Unfortunately we Germans are not smart when it comes to vote the right act for eurovision instead of the most famous one. Out of this lineup, Max is by far the most popular contender. He is the only one with a big fanbase, he still has the Stefan Raab connections, that will bring him all the positive press that he needs and his girlfriend ist germanys most famous comedian, she only needs to snip her fingers in order to manage her fanbase to vote for him…the only one that could be dangerous for him is Marie.

Sounds logical. Though I wonder why Marie didn’t get a better song with all those connections.

Maybe Michelle can do Eurovision again when she comes back from her 100th announcement to end her career for good.

What a bland and boring line-up. Who would’ve thought even Ireland would have more diversity and impact with their national selection?

Of this lineup, clearly Bodine Maxwell’s ”Tears Like Rain” is the best. It’s a quality pop song with country elements, I could see this doing very well at Eurovision.
