Eurovision 2024 Germany’s second rehearsal

Next up on the stage of Eurovision Song Contest 2024 is Germany. ISAAK with his song “Always On The Run” is ready for his second rehearsal on the stage of Malmö Arena!

Who is ISAAK?

ISAAK embarked on his musical journey as a street musician at the age of 12.

Fueled by a deep passion for music, he honed his skills in playing the guitar, piano, ukulele, and drums. It was during this formative period that he not only cultivated his unmistakable voice, which resonated deeply with his audiences but also developed a captivating stage presence.

A devoted family man and husband, music has always been at the heart of ISAAK’s life. A big break for the singer arrived in 2021 when he won the talent show Show Your Talent.

His early experiences as a street performer have shaped his artistry today, instilling in him a deep connection to both his craft and his audience.

ISAAK won “Eurovision Song Contest – Das Deutsche Finale 2024”, Germany’s national selection for Eurovision 2024, and the ticket for Malmö!

The Rehearsal

It’s time for Germany’s ISAAK now, with his power ballad Always On The Run. Like lots of singer/songwriters, ISAAK honed his craft as a street musician – he put on an impromptu street performance before the Pre-Party in Madrid, so hopefully we’ll see him out and about on the streets of Malmö over the coming week too.

This staging has had a major overhaul since Das Deutsche Finale back in February – ISAAK is also in a room, but rather than a filthy gym it looks like a very stylish living room, made from a black metal framework that means he can still be seen from all sides. It also has an open fire – and from the first chorus, all three sides of the room burst into flames, like the house is burning down. Hard to capture the atmosphere in words, but it’s really impressive.

The set sits under the middle cube, which has descended from the heavens to create a ceiling, but during the middle eight the whole set is wheeled away and it’s just ISAAK in the middle of the stage, wearing a black suit and flanked by four backing singers.

Watching both on screen and on the stage, it’s a really impactful three minutes – ISAAK’s interaction with parts of the room, the flames, and the dynamic change of set halfway through really elevates what is already a powerhouse vocal.

We’ve see SO much great staging over the past week – still four more performances to go, but it’s shaping to be a VERY good year.

Later today, a video will be released with thirty seconds of clips from the TV footage of the performances of the Big 5 and host Sweden . This video will be published on the official Eurovision YouTube channel after today’s rehearsals are over.

More information about the appearance of Germany will be made public on Monday 6/5 , after the Dress Rehearsal of the countries of the 1st Semi-Final.

Germany: MDR is to host the ESC preliminaries in 2025!

Year after year, Germany fails at the Eurovision Song Contest – not least the fault of NDR, which is responsible for the German preliminary round of the Eurovision Song Contest. Now, apparently, consequences are being drawn: As reported by Rolling Stone, the MDR will host it from 2025.

Those responsible at NDR have to admit to themselves that even with new concepts, everything remained the same every year, the Eurovision Eurovision participants could hardly convince anyone of themselves on the Eurovision stages, because the Eurovision noticeably lacked courage and creativity. The ARD executives are now said to have made the decision to entrust the more music-oriented broadcaster MDR with the organization of the Eurovision preliminary decision. MDR‘s head of entertainment, Peter Dreckmann, also acts as ARD‘s music coordinator. The change was allegedly even received with relief at NDR.

The fact that NDR will continue to be responsible for hosting the Eurovision preliminary round in 2024 is said to be due to the fact that funding from the MDR was not initially secured. Although there are possibilities of special financing for certain broadcast formats, this would first have to be approved by the program directors of the MDR, which probably did not happen in time. Costs of two million euros are expected for the preliminary round and the MDR already has to pay attention to its expenses anyway. Florian Silbereisen has already felt this, the red pencil was also applied to his schlager shows.

Neither spokespersons for NDR nor MDR wanted to deny this at this time. Those responsible said:

“Statements about the future belong in the realm of speculation, this is currently not an issue for the MDR.”

This leaves it open on how and where the preliminary round of the Eurovision Song Contest will take place in the future, but it does not dispel the rumours either.

It is also unclear whether Barbara Schöneberger will continue to be booked as a presenter for the preliminary show in 2025. At MDR, Florian Silbereisen is considered the best, at least when it comes to the station’s music shows.

Unfortunately, Lord Of The Lost did not succeed in overturning the tables for Germany, a country that struggles a lot in its Eurovision course for the past ten editions. Indicatively, in the last ten editions, Germany has finished last four times and second-last three times.
