    Yeah, but after last year I also thought we can only do better and now we only scored half of the points of 2016 :/

    Actually, if you look at Germany's Eurovision history, we always had streaks of good placements in the end and in the beginning of a decade. (At least in this century) But this also happened in the 70s (three 3rd places in a row) and in the 80s (two 2nd places and Nicole).

    1998: 7th
    1999: 3rd
    2000: 5th
    2001: 8th

    2010: 1st
    2011: 10th
    2012: 8th

    I know that there have been good placements between sometimes, but it's just something that really stands out - Maybe it's finally the time for this streak again. (Might be complete bullsh*t but I love statistics , could also mean that there have been some turning points in the end of a decade though)

    I don't want "funny crap". I want something I can be proud of.
    The only way out is basically an internal selection. The German public isn't able to go for innovative/progressive songs ... just take a look at what they rejected in the years 2013 - 2015... "Heart on the line", "Frozen Silence", "Mother Earth", "Wechselt die Beleuchtung", "Cotton Candy Hurricane", ... the list goes on and on. All of them would've without a doubt done better than the songs that actually have been chosen by the GERMAN PUBLIC. It shouldn't come as a surprise that we had two super bland songs in our NF this year ... why even bother looking for interesting songs when they don't get selected anyway. Yes, the NDR/ARD is doing a rather horrible job and it wouldn't hurt if they would at least listen to us fans a little BUT all of this is indeed the fault the German public as well. The German music industry is a wasteland simply because everything sounds exactly the same ... Andreas Bourani, Tim Bendzko, Sarah Connor, or some wannabe DJ's remixing some 50 year old songs... its all the same boring shit that nobody outside of Germany cares about.
    Believe me, I am super sick of people around me crying about how much Europe hates us and that we shouldn't send anyone to Eurovision anymore because it is "a waste of money" ... as if it was that easy.

    I know it's not everyone's taste and it's mostly satirical - but you should watch Jan Böhmermann's "Eier aus Stahl - Max Giesinger" in case you don't know it yet. This is truly relatable to the problems of our national final that we have to face again every year. :/ Not only Max Giesinger at all, but our German music industry.

    I'm not even sure if our music industry could write and produce songs like Loreen's "Euphoria", "My heart is refusing me" and so on, or if they even want to produce something like this. They can probably only do Borani, Giesinger and Bendzko...

    This actually makes me a bit interested in what's going on in the German music industry lol. I used to be familiar with it like in 2006 or so because I had Viva in my cable package and I quite liked it, I even remember wondering why their Eurovision choices don't reflect their music industry

    Levina was so lucky to participate in the same edition as Manel.

    I agree 100% on that.
    Nevertheless: If I had to pick one direction, I would still recommend to withdraw for some years. Mr. Schreiber's attitude is as unflexible as can be. He will go on and on and on with the same system for years to come. As long as he is in charge, history will only repeat itself. Just my humble opinion.

    It was very pleasant exchanging opinions with you over the past weeks. Thanks for that.
    Little off-topic: There are greater problems than the ESC, after this horrible horrible election result in my part of Germany today. No majorities for social justice.
    I will go to bed with a very depressed mind tonight. Bye.

    Ugh, don't remind me! I'm also still sad about the omission of Gregorian. Could it have been another potential Eurovision flop? Sure, but they would have put on a great show at least and that is something we haven't had in quite a while.
