The show had been broadcasted on Das Erste, One as well as on all regional channels such as NDR. Host of the show was Barbara Schöneberger also functions as the German spokesperson for several years already. As part of the so-called Big 5, Germany has a guaranteed spot in the grand final on May 14th. In addition to that, Germany can vote in the second semifinal on May 12th.
An online voting had already opened from different German radio channels on 28 February to choose the best song. Each radio channel announced their votes and made up 50% of the votes. In addition to that, the audience of the show had the chance to vote via televote and SMS. These results also served 50% of the results. This time, there is no jury influence on the final result. However, the 6 final acts have been picked from a jury which causes a lot of controversy as fan-favourite Eskimo Callboy hadn’t been picked as a finalist with their song Pump It. Watch our opinion on this matter as well as review of all the 6 competing songs down below.
