In just two weeks, the Germans will be sitting back, waiting to take to the Eurovision 2018 stage for the first and only time.
Germany, of course, is part of the “big five” countries and as such, they don’t need to bother themselves with the semi finals; granted automatic qualification to the Grand Final on May 12.
There they’ll compete against 10 countries from each of the semis, the other “big five” countries (Spain, Italy, France and the UK), as well as host nation Portugal.
Former ‘The Voice’ contestant Michael Schulte will lead the charge for them this year, with his English language single ‘You Let Me Walk Alone’.
It’s a really pretty song, actually. A little reminiscent of Five For Fighting’s big hit ‘100 Years’ and a little reminiscent of James Blunt.
But Michael has some really beautiful tones to his voice that really adds to the emotional journey of the song.
We’re not sure how Germany will fare at Eurovision 2018, but we’ll give them neuf points.
