Germany in Eurovision
Germany is one of the founder members of the Eurovision Song Contest having debuted in the very first contest in 1956. The country has won the competition twice in 1982 with Nicole and in 2010 with Lena. Germany has participated in every single contest since 1956 with the exception of 1996 when the country didn’t qualify through from the internal audio semifinal round.
The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 8, 10 and 12 May in Lisbon, Portugal.
The deadline for broadcasters to officially apply for Eurovision 2018 concludes by mid September. Hereafter, countries have a grace period to confirm their participation or withdraw their application without a penalty.
