#ESC21: Celebrating Germany At Eurovision

Over the course of April and May, on the lead up to the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, we will be celebrating the countries that are participating this year in Rotterdam. Today, we celebrate Germany.

Germany debuted at the Contest in 1956, in Lugano, Switzerland. Walter Andreas Schwarz took part with his entry “Im Wartesaal zum großen Glück”, while Freddy Quinn took part with his entry “So geht das jede Nacht”. Scoring at the inaugural Contest was kept secret and video footage no longer exits.

The most successful entry from Germany was in 1982 and 2010. In 1982, when the Contest took place in Harrogate, the United Kingdom, Nicole finished in first place with his entry “Ein bißchen Frieden”, scoring 161 points. This included nine sets of twelve points from Cyprus, Denmark, Ireland, Israel, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and Yugoslavia.
