Voting for the German representative will begin online on Monday, February 28 and will continue until the show on March 4.
The Head of Delegation has also talked with concerning the competition entrants’ selection. Following the receipt of 944 entries, a jury comprised of four radio station representatives and Ms Wolflast herself was formed.
The live auditions were conducted in Berlin for two days and allowed the 26 performers to play their songs. Alexandra Wolfslast went on to say that the national final submissions were chosen only after hearing all 26 artists.
She added that including radio station music specialists in the selection was done to “establish confidence within the German music scene” towards Eurovision, despite the country’s less successful previous history.
Ms Wolfslast stated that since the Berlin stage is smaller than the one used by the delegation in Turin, the stagings shown in the performance may alter.
