Germany 2016: national final date and details revealed
HAMBURG, GERMANY – NDR (Norddeutscher Rundfunk, responsible regional broadcaster to arrange the national ESC selection annually since 1996, for the ARD) announced working together with “Brainpool” again, today.
One of the founders is Stefan Raab, ESC participant, ESC song-writer, host and spin doctor of the national show format they are going to reanimate again.
On February 25th (8:15 p.m.) 10 candidates compete against each other in a huge national show called “Unser Lied für Stockholm” (our song for Stockholm). There is no further information about participants or hosts until now, except that Brainpool got the leadership in the production.
After Stefan Raab announced his TV-retirement (and fulfilled it) it will be interesting if his face gets back on screen for this special occasion. Summing all together it sounds like a solid but not innovative idea. But time is fleeting. It was the most reasonable decision for an unobstructed national process.
