Germany: Eight confirmed 'Das Deutsche Finale 2024' artists and songs, plus the 'Ich will zum ESC' entries

'Hallo, Eurovision. Germany calling!'

After a lengthy application and selection process which saw 693 acts apply, 572 songs submitted and 32 entries shortlisted and rated by an international jury composed of previous Eurovision jurors, the eight confirmed participants in Germany's national final - 'Das Deutsche Finale 2024' - and their songs were revealed today.

They are as follows (with links to their audio versions or official music videos):

So, you can put your hammers down, everyone! Disappointing many keen Contest fans, it was announced a few days ago that the Berlin-based electropop group Grossstadtgeflüster would not be in the mix, as the band had not in fact applied for the national final.

However, that's NOT all folks ...

'Ich will zum ESC'

A ninth and final act who "wants to go to Eurovision" will be chosen from a further fifteen soloists competing in a pre-national final, multi-round knockout competition, televised from 25 January to 8 February, and receiving coaching from Austria's 2014 winner Conchita Wurst. The rounds will include a lip-sync and a song-writing challenge.

Four of the fifteen artists will qualify for the live final on 8 February, with the winner being determined by a televote and joining the eight pre-selected candidates to represent Deutschland in Malmö.

You'll be able to follow the process via broadcasting network ARD's 'Das Erste' website.

Germany was represented at the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest by Lord of the Lost and their song 'Blood & Glitter'. Sadly, the song finished in a disappointing last place in the Grand Final, but did pick up points on this occasion. Germany's most recent of its two wins came courtesy of Lena with 'Satellite' in 2010.
