Germany: “Lied für Turin” is expected to take place at the beginning of March!

It looks like ARD has come to a conclusion that they will show the German preliminary round “Lied für Turin” within the first half of March.

Counting five placements below the 25th position, in the last six years of the Eurovision Song Contest, Germany has to step things up in the future. The German broadcaster has received harsh criticism, therefore, all the parties involved with Eurovision are now carefully planning their next steps towards Turin.

As announced two months ago by the Bavarian station Bayern3, that belongs to the wider network of ARD, “Lied für Turin” format returns. The Bavarian state radio invited all interested parties to submit their proposed entries, that could represent Germany at Eurovision 2022 by the 30th of November.

The Selection

According to Bayern3, the submitted songs will be examined by a relevant committee, which will then select the five entries that will compete in the grand final of “Lied für Turin”. This committee consists of executives of Bayern3, Antenne Brandenburg, Bremen 4, HR 3, MDR Jump, NDR 2, SR 1, SWR 3 and WDR 2, members of the German broadcasting network.

The big winner of the German national final will represent Germany in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest.

The information about the date of the German national final comes from a newly added job listing that came up yesterday, which shows that they are in search of an assistant receptionist for the beginning of March at the venue where “Lied für Turin” will take place in Berlin. However, ARD has not confirmed the exact date of the show so far.

Last year, Germany came 25th, with Jendrik performing his song “I Don’t Feel Hate”. The German entry received only 3 points from the jury voting and none from the televoting.
