German broadcaster NDR has announced the five acts that will compete in their new revamped national selection for Eurovision 2017. The show is titled “Unser Song 2017” and the winner will be decided on 9 February 2017.
The five acts will be matched with songs written exclusively for Eurovision by various producers. They will perform them at the national final where the public will have all the power, as the decision will be made via 100% public televote.
There will be a panel consisting of Eurovision 2010 winner Lena; singer-songwriter Tim Bendzko; and singer/television presenter Florian Silbereisen; they are there to purely give feedback after each performance.
International viewers will be able to take part in a poll on the official Eurovision app. The results will be revealed on the show and will give the German televoters some idea of who might do well at the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
Here are the five acts who are competing to represent Germany at Eurovision 2017:
- Axel Feige
- Felicia Lu Kürbiß
- Helene Nissen
Will Germany perform better than last year? In May 2016, they sent Jamie-Lee Kriewitz, who sang “Ghost” at the Grand Final. They finished in last place; 26th with 11 points.
With a new format to the National Selection, and five different and interesting artists, Germany is hoping for a better result than last year.
