Ahead of a packed Eurovision national final weekend, Germany has selected their representative for Eurovision 2021. Jendrik Sigwart will represent the nation with a song yet to be revealed.
The 26-year-old Hamburg native was selected after impressing 2 independent juries. Jendrik was part of 100 people and songs competing in Rotterdam for Germany: a ‘Eurovision Jury’ where as the name suggests, the jury made the final decision.
Jendrik began playing piano and violin at a young age, and studied musical theatre at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences. He has been writing songs for years, including writing songs for the ukulele, his favourite instrument.
Commenting on his upcoming opportunity, Jendrik said, ‘I am really looking forward to performing for Germany at the Contest. Okay – I just can’t stay serious about this. Hey, everyone! I am really going to the Eurovision Song Contest! This is a dream come true. Amazing!’
The Head of the German Delegation, Alexandra Wolfslast said, ‘Jendrik is totally authentic. He has fantastic charisma and incredible entertainment qualities. It was not surprising that he convinced the juries. We are very happy that he will be representing Germany.’
The song that Jendrik will sing will be revealed on Thursday 25th February at 17:50 CET, and 19:56 on the ARD public television channel.
