NDR (The German National Broadcaster) finally announces the last act that will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 – Unser Song für Malmö show and it will be Mia Diekow.

I have known of Mia Diekow for some time now and she is a very interesting artist. Born in Hamburg in 1987, her music is very eclectic. She released her first album “Die Logik liegt am Boden” erschien on the 27th of July 2012 to much critical acclaim. Her music ranges from Pop to Rock to Electronic to RnB. I would compare her to a German Ellie Goulding.

What also makes Mia an interesting artist is that she is extremely visual in her creativity. She has written the story boards for a lot of her videos and as you will see they are highly amusing.

She is the last contestant in the German National Final and will perform the song “Lieblingslied” which I believe means “Favourite Song”

Here is a flavour of Mia’s songs and hopefully something to expect from her.

Firstly is her charming song “Herz”

Next we have the very funky “Black Beauty” which shows her musical diversity
