The German Final was held on February 22nd at TV Studios in Frankfurt, hosted by Marie-Louise Steinbauer. The winning song was chosen by a jury of 11 people. They firstly voted for their favourite song by each of the 3 artists, who each sung three songs, and then the best song by each artist was voted on again to decide the winner.
