From thousands of acts to just 33; that is the total number of artists that have made the shortlist and will continue their bid to compete in the German national final for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, Unser Song 2017.

Having received almost a total of 2,500 entries last month, it was down to an expert committee to deliberate and shortlist an initial total of 30 acts to compete in the final round of castings, eventually going to shortlist an additional 3 acts.

Unser Song 2017

Following 2 sets of last-place results at the previous Eurovision Song Contests, German national broadcaster ARD has decided to go back to basics in order to select their representative for the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.

With 4 acts competing in the national final, a 3-member jury panel will be present in the final in February who will comment on the performances by each of the finalists, consisting of members Tim Bendzko, Florian Silbereisen and Lena. Whilst the jury panel will comment on the performances, the representative will be decided 100% via a public vote.
