NDR, the German broadcaster has confirmed and informed Esctoday.com that Germany will compete at the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden next May. The broadcaster is currently working on the 2013 German Eurovision national selection process. More details will be revealed in due course. Hence NDR will not collaborate with private German channel Pro7 in order to select the 2013 German Eurovision entry and representative, as in three previous years. This was previously reported in German press.
Germany debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 and was one of the founder members of the contest, having won the event twice in 1982 with Nicole’s Ein Bisschen Frieden and in 2010 with Lena’s Satellite. Germany has only missed participating at the Eurovision Song Contest once, in 1996, when they missed out in the preselection round. After that it was decided that the so-called Big 5 countries get an automatic entry to the final every year.
