The German national final “Unser Lied für Stockholm” from Cologne has brought a new Eurovision hope for Germany. The winner and representative for Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest is a 17-years-old girl named Jamie-Lee Kriewitz, her song is called “Ghost”. Among ten candidates the German public was able to vote for their favourites. For the super final with three top acts were chosen: Avantasia with “Mystery Of A Blood Red Rose” (rock song), Axel Diehl with “Nur Ein Lied” (ballad) and Jamie-Lee Krewitz with “Ghost” (pop song). These songs gained the majority of the public votes and therefore were able to perform again with another round of voting.
At the end Jamie-Lee could convince the German public. She had the most conclusive stage appearance and is probably the best choice for Germany in an international competition. She is authentic has a striking Manga-Style and a very good voice. She could even win the German issue of The Voice 2015.
In respect of her age and the rules in German television, she had to be off stage after 11 PM, so the afterwards press conference had taken place immediately after the show in the TV studio. She is even not allowed to join the TV morning show, as there are no 12 hours in-between. When Jamie-Lee is in Stockholm, she will be 18 years old, so there is no problem with the late hours then.
The host Barbara Schöneberger has been quite briskly and funny, as always. There were several best of videos to push the ESC atmosphere. The Dutch band The Common Linnets (Netherlands 2014, 2nd place with “Calm After The Storm”) have sung their ESC entry from 2014 and together with The BossHoss.
The entire show has been quite diverting, with a lot of music styles, a good stage and sound, no major issues and a very good atmosphere in the audience. There were around 1, 8 million televoters at that night.
