Germany: Roman Lob Surpasses ExpectationsWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
Earlier this year, Germany had decided to come back to the Eurovision Song Contest with the same format that created a star in the form of Lena-Meyer Landrut ending up finishing in the top spot back in Oslo, Norway with the song Satellite and then managing a second top ten position with the song Taken By A Stranger when competing in her home country. This time round though, a man has been chosen over a woman and Roman Lob came into the competition with the belief that he could do well even though pundits where playing his entry down placing it within a mid-table position although that has all seemed to change now following two rehearsals.
The song which is representing the country bears the name Standing Still written by Steve Robson, Wayne Hector and Jamie Cullum. The three are synonymous to the world of music actually having penned a number of hits for the likes of One Direction, James Blunt, Carrie Underwood, Leona Lewis, Faith Hill, Blue, Westlife and Take That amongst others. Roman has been doing a great job in terms of performance and the simple staging is doing the track wonders. Earlier today Roman was taking interviews with the media actually and therefore, our team present in Baku, Azerbaijan also spoke to him about his performance and career thus far. We believe that Germany has truly become a contender amongst the six or seven entries that seem to be able to make a name for themselves this year.
