NDR, the German national broadcaster, have announced a withdrawal ahead of Unser Lied für Liverpool 2023 tonight – their national selection for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest, in Liverpool.
The band Frida Gold will not be able to participate in the German show “Unser Lied für Liverpool” due to singer Alina Süggeler being sick. The ESC preliminary, hosted by Barbara Schöneberger, will decide who will represent Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest, in Liverpool. Frida Gold would have entered with the song “Alle Frauen In Mir Sind Müde”. Das Erste will broadcast “Eurovision Song Contest 2023 – Unser Lied für Liverpool” live from MMC Studios in Cologne on Friday, 3 March, starting at 21:20 GMT/22:20 CET. Fans can also watch the show live on ONE, Deutsche Welle, eurovision.de and the ARD Mediathek.
Frida Gold, had the following to say:
“Already on the second day of rehearsals, it was obvious to everyone involved that Alina Süggeler was very ill and suffered from a fever. Rehearsals had to be reduced to two run-throughs, in which she could only sing sporadically. After that, she immediately headed home, hoping that rest and medication would be able to stabilise her for the following day. Unfortunately, it was the opposite, as she experienced fever, chills, an acute sore throat, and also lost her voice completely. Her medical consultation resulted in her having to go on sick leave for a week and prescribed strict bed rest.”
