Das deutsche Finale 2024

Das deutsche Finale 2024 will be held on Friday, 16 February 2024 and will be broadcast live from Berlin, hosted by – as always – Barbara Schöneberger. Here the German public, along with an expert jury, will decide which of the nine finalists will represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 in Malmö.

Germany in Eurovision

Germany is a grand old country in the Eurovision Song Contest. They have participated 66 times since the beginning in 1956.

The only year Germany didn't participate was in 1996. Prior to the competition in 1996, 30 countries had signed up for participation, so the EBU had to make a selection. Judges from the participating countries made a secret vote, where the top-22 songs qualified. During this vote, the judges only listened to, but didn't watch, the contestants. This turned out to be highly unpopular, and it was also the only time this method was used. The result of the vote was that Germany was ruled out. This was the first and only time Germany didn't participate in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Germany's best results are two victories: in 1982 (Nicole - "Ein Bißchen Frieden") and 2010 (Lena - "Satellite"). Their worst results are nine last place finishes. Germany is a member of the "Big-5," which means they don't have to go through the Semi-final round and are automatically qualified for the Grand Final. They are also a member of "Club Nul Points," with zero points in 1964, 1965 and 2015.
