Last night’s German national final saw a dramatic turn of events when the USfÖ winner, Andreas Kümmert, withdrew from the contest shortly after his victory.

Because of this, it was decided that the runner-up of the national final, Ann Sophie, would go on to represent Germany at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest with her entry Black smoke. Germany will compete in the Grand Final of the contest on the 23 May in the host city of Vienna.
