The duo S!sters have revealed the official music video of their entry into the Eurovision Song Contest 2019.
The German song for the contest, Sister, performed by Carlotta Truman and Laurita Spinelli as “S!sters” now has an official music video, released on Eurovision.tv:
The video features the duo fighting in a boxing ring surrounded by people cheering from the sides until they drop their gloves and join together.
The video was teased last month in a vlog by Carlotta.
As one of the “Big 5” group of nations in Eurovision, Germany pass directly to the Grand Final of the contest which will take place this year on Saturday 18th May in Tel Aviv. S!sters will be performing in the first-half of the final.
The rotating box that S!sters used on stage at the German national selection has been dropped for the performance at Eurovision, which will have a different presentation featuring the catwalk stage.
Florian Wieder, creative producer of the performance is reported to have explained that:
(It) was a bit confusing, for everyone, for the spectators as well as for the artists themselves
For their performance:
In Tel Aviv, a lot is going on more focused on the message of her song, just at the beginning. Their voices, which fit so perfectly together, speak for themselves. For us, it’s about putting the ideas that your song transports into the staging.
Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest
Germany was one of seven countries to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1956. The country has taken part in every contest since then, apart from in 1996 when they failed to make it through the qualifying round. To date Germany has won the contest twice, the first time being in 1982 when Nicole sang “Ein Bisschen Frieden” in Harrogate, which later became a global hit. Germany didn’t win again until 2010, when Lena sang “Satellite” in Oslo. She received 9 sets of 12 points, scoring 236 points overall.
