Germany has confirmed that they will be competing in the 62nd Eurovision Song Contest.
Thomas Schreiber confirmed the news to ESC Daily alongside the decision that NDR will not hold an internal selection process for the contest. In the run up to the contest NDR opted for an internal selection for the singer, with Xavier Naidoo being selected, the decision was strongly criticised and in the end Naidoo was dropped as the singer. Mr Schreiber confirmed that another selection involving multiple singers and songs is likely to be held.
To date five countries have confirmed their participation for next year.
