Last night Germany crowned Ann Sophie as the winner of their wild card selection concert show. The London based, Hamburg born singer and actress was chosen over nine other acts with her song ‘Jump the Gun’.
Ann Sophie will join seven other acts both well-known and new acts in Germany’s national selection final on the 5th March. This includes Alexa Feser, Andreas Kümmert, Fahrenhaidt, Faun, Laing, Mrs. Greenbird and Noize Generation.
The format of Unser Song für Österreich format sees all the acts perform one of their two original songs in the first round, with four acts advancing to the second round. The second round will then see the four artists that qualified from the first round perform their second song. Out of all eight songs of the remaining artists (both from round 1 and 2) the top two songs will be selected by televoting. These two songs have to be from different artists. If the top two songs are both from the same artist, only the first will advance together with the third placed song. The third round of public televoting will then determine the winning entry.
