Germany will continue its performer selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 tonight with the second heat of Unser Star für Oslo being held. Ten acts will compete for five spots in the next stage of the selection.
The show to be broadcast on Pro 7 will start at 20:15 CET and it will be hosted by Sabine Heinrich and Matthias Opdenhövel in Cologne. Ten acts will perform cover versions of (more or less) famous songs and five of them will be chosen to reach the second stage of the competition. Along with the five qualifiers chosen last week, they will meet again in the first elimination round on 16th February. A jury will give advice. Head judge Stefan Raab will be joined by two guests: Singers Sarah Connor and Peter Maffay.
