The ten artists that will compete for a Wildcard for the German national selection have been announced.
After the call for new artists’ applications to compete for a Wildcard made by the German broadcaster NDR last November, 2240 artists uploaded a video through YouTube in order to take part in this initiative.

Germany participated in the very first Eurovision Song Contest. The country only missed the contest once in 1996. Still, no other country has a higher number of participations. Two victories complete Germany’s Eurovision history.
