Germany: Interview with Malik Harris | With “Rockstars” in Germany 12 Points! (Video)

Following the announcement of his participation in this year’s German national final, Germany 12 Points, Malik Harris speaks exclusively to EurovisionFun and Apostolos Bogiannos and Apostolis Matamis.

Malik is one of the six finalists in the German national final for Eurovision 2022, and will try to represent his country with the song “Rockstars”.

I wrote “Rockstars” last year and a few weeks ago a friend asked me if I would ever consider being at Eurovision and I said “I do not know, but I have the song that works for this purpose”. This is because it is quite personal and something different than what Germany usually does. Why not? It all starts with the right song after all. We grow up and initially live with a childish and carefree sense of life because when we are children everything around us is so simple. And growing up the thoughts and worries come and so have I been in recent years, especially now with Covid, and I recall how happy I was when I was little and how much that changes over time. Thus, the deeper meaning of “Rockstars” is not to live by constantly recalling the past. To keep the good moments from it but to see the good moments of today and to walk according to them.

Regarding his stage appearance in the national final, he stated that:

The staging will be very emotional. It’s the first song I wrote and it made me cry. And I will try to convey its meaning on stage.

Although he likes all the fellow songs, he singles out those of Felicia Lu and Maël & Jonas.

His favorite German participation is that of Lena (2010) ,while from the competition he generally distinguishes the participations of Måneskin (Italy 2021) and Duncan Laurence (Netherlands 2019).

If he chose a Eurostar to work with, it would be Måneskin (Italy 2021).

Malik is half American in origin and thinks it would be a great honor for him if he could present a song live in so many people, representing his country, Germany.

Shortly before the end of the interview, Malik gave us a part of his participation.
