USFD 2014: NEW HOSTESS ANNOUNCED
Olivier Rocher (France)
COLOGNE, GERMANY – In two months from now, the German national final Unser Song für Dänemark (Our Song for Denmark) will take place at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne. Last year, the show was hosted by Anke Engelke (host of Eurovision 2011) but on March 13th the audience will be welcome by a brand new hostess.
NDR has chosen popular actress, TV presenter and singer Barbara Schöneberger to take on the job. In 2010 and 2011 she was already part of the German selection show, but as a jury member. This year she will also host the club gig on February 27th when the eighth contestant of USFD (a newcomer artist) will be selected.
Indeed, so far, we only know 7 out of the 8 bidders: Das Gezeichnete Ich, Madeline Juno, MarieMarie, Oceana, Santiano, The Baseballs and Unheilig.
When her name was unveiled, Barbara declared: “It’s a great honour to me to get to host it. I look forward to the show as Eurovision is still a big event”.
