The singer for this year’s German song has been announced quite a while ago: Jendrik Sigwart. Jendrik is a lively 27-years-old singer, born in Hamburg, Germany. The talented extroverted musical singer is also composing his own songs. Hence “I Don’t Feel Hate” has become his special “baby”, he believes he could win the ESC.
In today’s press conference hosted by the German broadcaster NDR, Jendrik appeared optimistic and funny. He also expresses the meaning of his song “I Don’t Feel Hate”, as we should not tolerate hate, discrimination and mobbing, let people be as they are, without prejudices and negative comments in social media. And the most important point is not reacting with hate against hate.
The video clip was produced by himself with the help of his friends. The scenery is a laundrette, where he put tons of washing machines. The quick sequence of images with different types of music elements make it work. The outcome is a funny and intelligent music video with an important message.
This year, Germany had no national final, just a song presentation. Even if there has been an internal final, which will not be possible to watch, due to reasons of discretion, as some of the participants didn’t want to be seen, in case of not winning. Therefore, only juries made the decision, without the German public. The juries consisted of an expert jury and an international jury, with composers, musicians, former ESC singers, etc.
It all depends on the further Corona situation if Jendrik will be able to travel to Rotterdam, or if he has to sing in a studio with live broadcast.
