Germany 2016: Xavier Naidoo to Stockholm
BERLIN, GERMANY – It’s breakfast news in Germany! In the press and on the Internet we all had a German surprise this morning! The national broadcaster has chosen its next representative.
According to “Der Spiegel”, and after a confirmation on the Eurovision.de website, Xavier Naidoo will go to Stockholm! He is a famous soul singer, producer and actor. He has an extensive discography and even won a couple of MTW Europe Music Awards as “Best German Act”. This morning the singer published a video on Facebook to make this special announcement on his own.
Though the singer was chosen internally, there is going to be a national final show to choose the song. “Unser Song Für Xavier” (Our song for Xavier) will take place on February 18th.
After the dreadful result in Vienna, Germany definitely wants to stand high on the scoreboard again, giving up their selection process (that brought unexperienced singer on Eurovision stage twice, with poor results) and go for a big name.
