The 26-year-old Hamburg native will represent Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest this year after impressing 2 independent juries in a multi-stage selection process.
German public broadcaster, NDR, decided to put their faith into the hands of experts to select their Eurovision 2021 star. Jendrik was part of 100 people and songs competing in Rotterdam for Germany: a “Eurovision Jury” which saw the jury make the final call.
Jendrik is extremely excited about his opportunity to participate in the event: “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 that “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 Eurovision Song Contest 2021 will take place in Ahoy, Rotterdam in The Netherlands on 19, 21 and 23 May 2021. Eurofans in New Zealand can watch all three shows live on the official Eurovision YouTube channel, without commentary.
