The 5 singers competing in tonight’s final

As we already informed, both songs will be performed according to the process agreed by the broadcaster, divided in four rounds. The first round will just be based on singing a cover version of a well-known song by all 5 competing singers, who will be narrowed down to three by the German televote.

New App “Eurovision Vibes”: Germany needs you!

All international fans will be able to vote for their favourites of the German final through a brand new feature in the Eurovision APP called “Eurovision Vibes”. Moreover, this App will include videos of the rehearsals that will take place before the live show, as well as an official broadcast of the Grand Final. NDR wants the international fan community to help select the 2017 German act for the Eurovision Song Contest.

The winner of Unser Song 2017 will be decided after 4 rounds of audience voting that will feature both songs performed differently by the candidates:

  • Round 1: The 5 candidates will perform cover songs up to their choice with only 3 of them going through to the next round.
  • Round 2: The remaining 3 finalists will perform different versions of the first original song for Eurovision. Only two of them will advance to the third round.
  • Round 3: The selected two superfinalists will perform two different versions of the second original song and the audience will choose the best artist-song combination, from rounds 2 and 3.
  • Round 4: The two candidates will perform the best artist-song combination according to the audience with the one with most votes being declared the winner.

A jury panel, made up of Lena (Eurovision 2010), Tim Bendzko and Florian Silbereisen,will be providing the contenders with support and advice during the final show, but the winner will be selected by 100% public vote.

“Unser Song 2017” will be hosted by Barbara Schöneberger live from Cologne at 20.15 CET tomorrow. You can watch it clicking by HERE or on our MULTI-STREAMING PLATFORM.

 

About Adrián Valiente (Spain)

Adrián Valiente (Spain)
I love the Eurovision Song Contest not only because of its amazing production but it also gives me the chance to discover new music every year. I've been watching it since 2002, since then I became a huge follower, mostly because of the interest TVE put on it with Rosa from Spain. I've attended the contest several times in the last few years. I also attended the Junior Eurovision in Malta and Bulgaria where we lived an amazing experience thanks to all delegations and PBS/BNT organising team.
