Germany has been last for two years in a row! Therefore the German broadcaster NDR invented a new concept to find the perfect song for Eurovision. An expert team has chosen five candidates for the live show accompanied by a big band. The rules were a bit complicated and in each round somebody has been disqualified. There were two songs to choose from. The young singer Levina has convinced with her voice, at the end she was alone in the final with two songs! With 69% of the televotes “Perfect Life” has been selected as the German entry 2017.
Isabella Levina Lueenn was born in Bonn in 1991. In the age of nine she began to study singing and later on she also learned to play the piano and song writing. She even won the German contest “Jugend Musiziert”. Levina grew up in Chemnitz, Germany, but now she is living in London and commutes between London and Berlin. In London she studied vocals and composing as well as music management. Together with her band Miss Terry Blue she could win the Uni-Music League.
The German entry “Perfect Life” has been composed by the American team Lindy Robbins, Lindsey Ray und Dave Bassett. Despite her smoky deep voice, the composition is arranged in a higher note level and does not utilize her ability to sing deeper notes. The song itself has a certain monotony and the verse is a kind of withstand, the chorus is short and unobtrusive, and unfortunately hard to remember. This is probably not the perfect song for Levina, which is a tragedy. At least her charming smile and her good looks will give some marks.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
