Germany has chosen the ten names for the Clubkonzert on Febaruary 19 among almost the 1300 submissions. One of them will join the seven Big names in the national final on March 5. It's worth remembering last year Elaiza won this part, and then beat all the others in the final and went to Copenhagen for Germany. The Big ones are Fahrenhaidt, Faun, Alexa Feser, Mrs Greenbird, Andreas Kummert, Laing and Noize Generation.
