Germany

Germany is the most loyal contestant of the Eurovision Song Contest. A German contestant has been selected from the very beginning and it was only in 1996, in a one-off audio round, when the Germans failed to qualify for the final.

Germany is one of the Big Five, these are the countries who contribute the most to Eurovision and therefore go straight through to the final, despite the semi-finals.

Germany has won twice, in 1982 with Ein Bisschen Frieden by Nicole and in 2010 with Satellite by Lena. Additionally, the country has been the runner up four times. In 1985 and 1987 this was even by the same band: Wind.

Composer Ralph Siegel had a strong grip over the German entries. Between 1976 and 2003 he composed no less than fourteen of the German songs.
