•   days until the Eurovision Song Contest Final in Rotterdam!

Germany 2020

  1. James ... and his things xD

    Today Dutch newspapers rumoured strongly that Helene Fischer would be the candidate for Rotterdam, but that was false.

    It will be the 22 year old Benjamin Dolic with the song 'Violent Thing'.

    Benjamin gained success in Germany by participating in the 8th season of “The Voice of Germany” and placing second. He currently lives in Switzerland and has been touring Germany, Austria, and Switzerland in the past. Eurovision fans, however, may know him from the Slovenian national selection EMA in 2016, where he participated as part of the group D Base.

    I think the song is very Justin Timberlake like.

  2. Anaconda I'm as sick as fuck.

    I put it on and then switched tabs, and then I got confused because I thought it was a woman, whereas the name was clearly male. The genre is really not my cup of tea, and I am not a fan of the high pitch. I suppose it's catchy enough, curious to hear his live capabilities and to see the staging. Weird song title, also.

    Germany singing in English what a shock, this is rubbish even worse then the UK song and thats boring, Germany to join the UK in the bottom 3 yet again

    I applaud Germany for trying a different direction - and I think it's worked for a lot of people who were dying for an uptempo song this year. For me, personally - it's a solid song but it wasn't instant for me - I look forward to seeing what the staging potential could be. I imagine lots of lasers and mood lighting.

    Thanks James for posting. <<

    Edit: nevermind, that 'Such a violent thing~' part has wormed its way into my brain.

    I agree with Ana. He sounds like a girl and the song wouldn't be out of place with a sparkling pink heart at Melodifestivalen.

    I think this can do well with a good staging/performance.

    Well I'm imagining a Robin Bengtsson/Benjamin Ingrosso type staging.
