GERMANY – One more German entry failed to score well and both the national broadcaster and the signer are not happy with it.
“Of course, I’m disappointed that I got so few points. I’m still not sure why we did so badly. All I know is that Eurovision writes its own rules – and often those rules have little to do with music. I played a song that means a lot to me and means a lot to others. That’s why the position is not so important to me. In the end, I was very happy that Ukraine won. This showed that the Eurovision Song Contest can unite Europe and celebrate music.”
NDR READY FOR CHANGES
Germany’s state broadcaster, NDR, has come under fire after the country’s new failure at Eurovision. Following this, the managers of the state television hinted that there would be a change in the way of approaching Eurovision 2023.
In a statement after the competition, Alexandra Wolfslast, the German head of the mission, said that the NDR took the “very bad result” very seriously and went on to add:
“The selection process for the 2023 Competition will be different from the one used this year.” She also confirmed that NDR will retain control of song selection.
Germany addressed an open invitation to creators to submit their proposals for Eurovision 2022, which were evaluated and approved by 26 of them, which were presented to a special jury, which passed 6 of them in the final.
These six final songs were placed under the jurisdiction of the public who could vote for them in two phases.
The first was through an online poll which ended on the day of the national final, Germany 12 Points and determined 50% of the final result, and the second through live voting on the night of the final, which determined the other 50% of the final result.
