GERMANY – German national broadcaster is working on the national selection for the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. Already they assembly the Eurovision Jury. Now NDR and their partners at DIGAME, are working on finding the artists and songs which will participate in the preselection process.
There is a special website launched for authors to submit their work: https://mein-esc-lied.de
On August 30th, submissions window closed for singers (solo and bands) to submit their interest.
DIGAME is looking for a contemporary song which fits international standards and stands out from other songs. Additionally, the lyrics should have a strong, clear and understandable message.
ARCADE (The Netherlands 2019) and TOY (Israel 2018) are given as examples to those interested to submit their entries.
There is also confirmation that a jury of international experts will assist in the selection process and the national final.
By December 1st, DIGAME will activate the two juries assembled to choose (separately) songs and artists. Then DIGAME will pair the songs to the artist. The best-rated songs will be sung and performed by different artists. Then, the juries will determine the best combinations of song and artist.
Those singers without a song ill be given the chance to compose their own song. Ten to twenty hopefuls will be able to attend songwriting sessions with professional and successful songwriters. Additionally, they will record and perform already submitted songs.
After all that, the juries will re-evaluate the entries and somehow we willed up with a national final show.
