GERMANY – Germany 12 Points was the country’s national final that took place on Friday night. 3 words the Germans will no doubt be hoping will be spoken aplenty and with aplomb as the results come rolling in on that Saturday night in May in Turin!
The German national final to find its Eurovision song had a nice and concise selection of 6 tunes in contention for the sought-after win. In the end, it was the song Rockstars which triumphed, performed by Malik Harris.
The German-American pop singer, rapper and songwriter Malik Harris (24) grew up near Landsberg am Lech. He comes from a very musical family: ‘My grandpa was an opera singer, my grandma was a pianist and my dad plays several different instruments and teaches cello’.
Malik’s first singles, Say The Name (2018) and Welcome to the Rumble (2019), hit both on the airplay chart and on streaming platforms, too. He began his first solo tour in May 2019. He has also opened for international acts like James Blunt, Alex Clare, Jeremy Loops, Tom Odell and LP. His debut album, Anonymous Colonist, came out in August 2021.
“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.”
With no jury involved, it was 100% down to the public who got to represent Germany in Turin. That result was determined 50% by TV viewers watching on the night, and 50% by radio listeners who had been voting all week for their favourite song.
