Tonight, NDR on its first channel (Das Erste) will be airing the grand final of this year’s edition of ‘Unser Star Für Österreich’. The show will take place from Hannover’s TUI Arena with last year’s Eurovision winner, Conchita Würst and Mark Forster as special guests.
Eight artists got to pick or were assigned 2 songs for the show, so in the first round the 8 contenders will be singing one of two songs but only 4 of them, the ones with the highest score awarded by the audience, will get another chance in the second round when they will be performing the second entry. Along with these ones, the first entry they sang will be added to the voting process and then the final round will feature the best two songs out of 8. In case the top two songs come from the same act, the third-placed entry will get the chance to make it through the final round. Then, solely televoting will decide who will be waving the German flag in Vienna, so no jury committee having a say tonight.
The line-up for the show looks as it follows:
The first round will feature the next entries, assigned or chosen by each artist:
