Their debut entries were Walter Andreas Schwarz’s “Im Wartesaal zum großen Glück” and Freddy Quinn’s “So geht das jede Nacht”. Germany has appeared at every Eurovision since except for 1996, which means they have been at more contests than any other country. They have a long history of success in Eurovision, finishing in the top 3 an impressive 13 times. Germany has won the contest twice. Nicole won in 1982 with her song “Ein bißchen Frieden”, taking home 161 points in the process. Their second win came in 2019, when Lena scored 246 points with her song “Satellite”.
Germany’s most recent Eurovision entry was Jendrik’s “I Don’t Feel Hate”. As Germany is part of the Big 5, they automatically qualified for the Grand Final. In the Final, the song received 3 points and finished 25th.
