NDR, public broadcaster of Germany in collaboration with production company Brainpool have had several meetings with the biggest record labels in the country to select seven (7) acts that represent positive qualities to take forward to the Eurovision Song Contest, which in 2014 is taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark. An eighth (8th) participant will be selected through a public selection featuring young, upcoming talent and from there onwards, two (2) songs for each artist will be put forward for the national selection, which is set to take place on the 13th March 2014 in Cologne.

In recent weeks, there have been several rumours with regards to the artists that were being considered by both the broadcaster and the production company and the editorial team at escflashmalta.com believes that Germany have gone for a versatile mixture of talent and renowned stardom. Following three (3) years of success, finishing in the top ten with the likes of Lena Meyer-Landrut and Roman Lob, Germany took to the stage earlier this year with the ever so popular Cascada whose song Glorious failed to set the scoreboard alight, managing a lower mid-table position by the end of the evening.

  • Das Gezeichnete Ich
  • Madeline Juno
  • MarieMarie
  • Oceana
  • Santiano
  • The Baseballs
  • Unheilig

Whilst all of the acts have material which has already been officially published, it has to be noted that The Baseballs, Unheilig and Oceana are three stars across the nation with fan-bases even beyond their own country and therefore, kudos to the German public broadcaster for managing such an impressive line-up in hope of improving their results at the Eurovision Song Contest. As one of the Big Five countries, Germany enjoys a free passage to the final round of the Eurovision Song Contest, a privilege it enjoys with the United Kingdom, France, Spain and Italy.
