As the ESC evening “Countdown to Turin” begins, Barbara Schബnberger looks forward to the likes of Thomas Hermans, Max Geissinger and Johnny Logan.
Music fans are waiting for the finals of the Eurovision Song Contest to be held on May 14th. There will be a big celebration on TV as usual. “Countdown to Turin” features Thomas Hermans (59), Max Geisinger (33) and Johnny Logan (67) with moderator Barbara Schonberger (48). The NDR announced on Tuesday.
Comedian and moderator Thomas Hermans has moderated the German ESC preliminary round for years. With him, “Schബnberger will be reminded of the great songs of the Eurovision Song Contest, the unusual costumes, and the most touching and surprising moments,” the show predicts.
Singer-songwriter Max Geisinger will remember some of the best German ESC songs that he would like to comment on specifically. He’s performing the song “Taxi” on his new album as a TV premiere.
Irish singer Johnny Logan first won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1980 with his song “Watts Another Year”. In 1987, he competed again in Brussels under the title “Hold Me Now” and won. Five years later, Linda Martin sang “Why Me?” For Ireland. He won the ESC for composing and composing the song. In “ESC – Countdown für Turin” Johnny Logan performs three legendary hit songs in one medley.

Malik Harris (24) will also be present: This year’s German representative from ESC will connect live from Turin and report on how he did before the music competition and what his performance with the song “Rockstars” meant.
