A tip for Germany: Rosenstolz
Germany - like the other Big4 - have been struggling hard to make it even top-20 in the Eurovision for far too many years now so I have a tip for Germany: skip the selection and send Rosenstolz instead! They are hot again all over German speaking Europe with Gib mir Sonne and could easily made Nena-like surprise (99 Balloons anyone?) and make it elsewhere, too, even UK. They started in early 1990's and made it out of Berlin's gay clubs to the mainstream in Eurovision, namely the German selection 1998 where they finished 2nd with Herzensschöner. So they must be interested if only asked! Their habit has been in the 2000's to break records in live audiences, sales and most everything so why not breaking the German spell of unluck in Eurovision as well. Berlin 2009!
