Tonight is the eagerly anticipated German National Final.
12 songs will battle their way to try their luck in representing Germany at Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Sweden!
You can tune in to watch the final HERE at 20:15 CET. The final will be broadcast live from Hanover, Germany! Anke Engelke is also going to be the presenter tonight (she presented Eurovision 2011 in Dusseldorf!)
This is the line-up of tonight's show:
The songs will be voted in 3 sections tonight. The first third of the votes comes from the public televote. The second third consists of a jury including Tim Bendzko (pop singer), Roman Lob (German 2012 Eurovision representative), Anna Loos (pop singer), Mary Roos (schlager singer) and Peter Urban (radio host and German Eurovision commentator.
The third and final area of voting comes from a German radio poll which has been voting for the songs already for 1 week!
I think it's highly important to note the singing position of Cascada, a widely known eurodance act which will be performing live. I know that this song is anticipated to win, due to Cascada's well known success, and especially this draw position of singing last is highly in their favour!
You can listen to a "sneak peek" of the songs when they practised their songs earlier today HERE
I have to say, my top 5 songs have to be (in no particular order):
- Mobilee - "Little Sister"
- Saint Lu - "Craving"
- Nica & Joe - "Elevated"
- Cascada - "Glorious"
- Mia Diekow - "Lieblingslied"
As to who may win, I have no idea, but my money is on Cascada.
I would be nice to see not such a obvious choice from Germany however!
What do you think? :)
