It is going to be 7 acts that will battle it out for Germany’s representation at the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. As the date of the country’s national final went public last week, it’s now time we bought our tickets!
Tickets are now available for sale through tvtickets.de website, at the price of 39 Euro. As stated on the webpage, tickets may be sold out quickly, so let’s hurry up! However, there is going to be a new batch of tickets between late January and early February.
Who will honour the show as guests?
NDR‘s new press release also unveiled the guest acts that are going to appear and leave their own stigma at the show. Initially, last year’s winner of the event Michael Schulte will be there to perform his Eurovision entry You let me walk alone, with which he brought Germany an honourable 4th place.
In addition, the rock band Revolverheld has been announced as guests at the national final. They formed back in 2002 and are still among the most famous musical acts in Germany. So is the third guest, the 72-year-old singer Udo Lindenberg, whose recent and latest song Wir ziehen in den Frieden topped the German charts.

Germany at Eurovision
Germany has had a record number of 62 Eurovision appearances since their debut in 1956. The country has only missed one contest (1996), after their elimination from the pre-selection process that took place that year.
The Germans have experienced a mixture of results over the years, including 12 Top 3 placings – including 2 victories (1982, 2010) – as well as 7 last places, 2 of which were accumulated in the current decade.
The central-European country has seen relatively poor results over the last editions. However, these poor fortunes were reversed last year, as the winner of last year’s selection Unser Lied für Lissabon (Our song for Lisbon), Michael Schulte with his ballad You let me walk alone, became one of the contest’s surprises, coming 4th with a total of 340 points, from both the public and national juries.
Following Netta’s victory with Toy, the 64th Eurovision Song Contest will take place on 14, 16 and 18 May at the Tel Aviv Convention Center in Tel Aviv, Israel.
