The channel (NDR) that chose Jendrik, actually released a statement that "it was a perfect performance with a convincing staging and an important message."
Uhm...yeah...I still don't get how jumping around with a glittery ukulele and a girl in a middle-finger-costume is "convincing staging" and a "perfect performance", but well...IIRC, Germany has never been known for their magnificent taste in the last couple of years.
C'mon, don't bash my number 5!!! :biggrinbo :40beers:

Jendrik is going to live on and on in future Eurovision montages.
He was interviewed after the ESC and said he's happy cause the finale gave him 8000 more instagram followers.

I was thinking when you're on a show that is shown in front of MILLIONS of people, I'm not sure 8000 new followers is very much :shuffle: :lol:

FWIW I think he's a good dancer, maybe he should concentrate on that.

He is actually a trained musical actor, so that is probably why his dancing was alright.

Some people are suggesting that he was chosen because NDR didn't want to waste money on Eurovision: His song and music video were already finished and paid for by himself or by whomever decided to fund this shitshow.

We met our neighbors today and also talked about this and we found out that they also love my new favorite German band and we all agreed that they should go to Eurovision at some point because they are really the best thing Germany has right now.

Please share the name of the band :).

Ouch!

To be honest, I couldn't really focus on his dancing skills; vocals, the bedazzled ukulele, "rap" parts and the middle finger distracted me too much!

I actually texted them on instagram during the wasted aftermath of Eurovision and asked them whether they could imagine taking part in this.
I got a reply today stating that they are not sure they'd fit in. But hey, glamrock won this time, Lordi also won at some point, so why not sending great indie rock from Germany to get more points than only 3 overall?
It cannot get much worse.

Thanks, @Ananas Astra , I will check of they are better than Die Toten Hosen and Rammstein.😆
I'm not a huge fan of Rammstein and Die Toten Hosen, so to me, they are.

There are more better German artists who would do better than Jendrik and who at least are known in this country.
Stefan Raab should just take care of finding someone. Everytime he was involved, Germany ended up in the top 10 or even won (Lena).

Thanks! Off to YT! :)

I'm willing to cast a vote for Scooter :D.

Btw, I guess the last German entry I really liked is Ann Sophie's "Black Smoke." Well, I know it got 0 pts, as well, but at least it had some class. Ben Dolic last year seemed a wise choice, but I heard him perform it live and it was, hmm, below one's expectations.

Whoa - I think that’s the same band I saw at a pub by the University of Leeds (UK) back in 2018! And yes they were good. They had an EP called New Estate at the time, I should check what’s been released since.

Exactly!
They have quite a following in the UK whereas in Germany, barely anyone knows them apart from indie rock fans.

I didn't see the Eurovision contest, but I happened to run across Malta's song on another site, and I can't stop listening to it.

Johnny Logan performed yesterday in our outdoor village festival. He seemed to be genuinely happy to sing to ca 500 people in the middle of nowhere in Finland.
He is in good shape and had a great gig.
