Luxembourg: Commentators for RTL and spokesperson unveiled!

The lineup for Luxembourg’s RTL’s coverage of the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden, has been revealed.

The commentators for RTL will be Raoul Roos and Roger Saurfeld.

Who will the spokesperson be?

Many have been wondering who will be the person to hand out the first “twelve points” of the country following its thirty years of absence. Other than Désirée Nosbusch, there would be none. Désirée Nosbusch is no stranger to the Eurovision community, having hosted the contest the last time it was held in Luxembourg in 1984. She was one of the hosts of the Luxembourg Song Contest earlier this year. Given that she was only 19 years old in 1984, Désirée Nosbusch is actually one of the youngest hosts in the contest’s history.

So far, the following countries have revealed their spokesperson for Eurovision 2024 in Malmö:

  • Georgia – Sopho Khalvashi
  • Belgium – Livia Dushkoff
  • Switzerland – Jennifer Bosshard
  • Azerbaijan – Aisel 
  • Slovenia – Lorella Flego
  • Luxembourg – Désirée Nosbusch

Tali will represent Luxembourg with her song “Fighter” and will perform last in the first semi-final of May 7.

Germany: Changes in the selection process for Eurovision?

TV producers Stefan Raab and Daniel Rosemann have pitched a new idea to the four major German TV channels (ARD, ZDF, RTL and ProSieben) to work together to select Germany’s Eurovision entry.

This program will include ZDF, RTL and ProSieben each hosting a semi-final with the finalists progressing to the grand final, broadcasted on Das Erste. All networks are interested, but no final decision will be made until this year’s competition is over.

According to the plan, all the shows will be produced by the same studio. However, each broadcaster can organize their evening according to their own ideas. The winners of these three programs will compete in the final at Erste to get their ticket for Eurovision .

Whether ARD will select its own candidates before the German final is negotiable. There are still different ideas about what exactly the joint project will bring from the participating broadcasters, such as the details of the organization and the amount of money.

There is also a reason why the decision will take some time. They want to see how Germany will perform at this year’s Eurovision in Malmö in May. A success of Isaak would give the prospect of a new attempt.

Germany will be represented this year by Isaak with the song “Always On The Run” .

Will Germany manage to avoid the last place in the final? Tell us in the comments below!

Luxembourg: TALI will represent the Dutchy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 with the song “Fighter”!

Luxembourg joined the Eurovision Song Contest again this year and they will have their representative perform in Malmö Arena in the hopes of winning the contest for the 6th time. Their national final, called Luxembourg Song Contest 2024, just finished and the public has chosen TALI with the song “Fighter” to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2024 to be held in Malmö, Sweden!

The show

The Final show was hosted by Désirée Nosbusch, Melody Funck, Raoul Roos and Loïc Juchem and was broadcast live from Rockhal, Luxembourg.

Anne Marie David, French singer who has represented both Luxembourg and France at the Eurovision Song Contest, winning in 1973 and placing third in 1979, opened the show, followed by a “flag parade” style intro where all the contestants entered the stage.

It is worth mentioning that one of the most prominent Greek singers, Vicky Leandros, made an amazing guest appearance at Luxembourg Song Contest 2024, singing “Après toi. This was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1972 performed in French by Vicky, when she represented Luxembourg.

All the contestants performed “Poupée de cire, poupée de son“, the winning entry of Luxembourg  at the Eurovision Song Contest 1965, held in Naples.

After the first voting round, all the contestants paid tribute to this year’s host country, Sweden, by singing one of the most iconic Swedish Eurovision entries, ABBA‘s “Waterloo“.

Many eurostars were there as guests, such as Charlotte Perelli, Ruslana, Katrina Leskanich of Katrina and the Waves and Alexander Rybak all performed their winning entries live!

Vicky Leandros also performed “L’amour Est Bleu” acompanied by Alexander Rybak who played his violin!

The voting system

The winner will be decided through a 50-50 split, with 50% coming from the jury’s vote and the remaining 50% from the audience. Specifics include:

  • The jury, contributing 50% to the result, comprises representatives from eight countries, with five members from each country.
  • The audience voting is open not only to the local audience but also to the international audience, giving everyone a say in who will represent the Grand Duchy at Eurovision 2024.

The songs

The following eight contestants competed in the hopes of getting selected to represent Luxembourg in Malmö:

Our take on the eight competing songs

Our rating is on a Eurovision scale, 12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3

Rating: 10

Joel has a great stage presence, amazing vocals and a song that personally reminds me of Melodifestivalen entries. I could definitely see him represent Luxembourg.

Rating: 3

The song of EDSUN is kinda funky, but for me it has nothing special. Maybe the choreo and the staging does something, especially when they were stacked on the ground. It is very intuitive, but no more than that. I have to admit that his voice was very good, he was never out of tune, even though he was heavily choreographed.

Rating: 8

Eight. For Naomi‘s voice and for the French lyrics. The song is okay. I could see this represent Luxembourg in Malmö this year.

Rating: 7

Love the vibe of the song! However since it is a televised show and the image plays an important role, I disagree with their styling. Angy and Rafa stack up their voices on an amazing duet! Nice duet!

Rating: 6

The only group act tonight, with a nice staging, but nothing special song-wise. Let’s see how they will do tonight!

Rating: 12

I see the winner here (wrote this before the announcement, so in case she wasn’t please bear with me). Amazing vocals, song, stage presence! I can see this doing good at this year’s contest. Would she win though? In my honest opinion, I don’t think so.

Rating: 5

CHAiLD might have been a bit stressed out. His vocals were not good, he kind of lost it at times. Loved his style though. The LED stage projections were great!

Rating: 4

Such a catchy song but TALI doesn’t seem to be doing much, the dancers carry the job. Four, only for the song.

The results

The eight contestants that competed in Luxembourg Song Contest were given the chance to be voted twice by the public, within two voting intervals during the show.

After the first interval, the below three artists were selected to take part in the second voting interval, as the hosts of the show called it, the Super Final of Luxembourg Song Contest:

But let’s have a look on how the jury voting went?

Jury voting 12 points

jury results

TALI grossed a total of 94 points from the international juries. After the public vote was added, these are the final results that determined the winner and this year’s representative of Luxembourg at the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Malmö, Sweden.

 

The selection of the representative of Luxembourg adds up to the list of selected artists and songs that we will get the chance to watch being performed live later next May in Malmö, Sweden! At the video down below you can watch this year’s representative of Luxembourg, who will get the chance to perform on stage in Malmö this May:
