Powerful voices and big names at the "Bundesvision Song Contest 2012" on ProSieben: On Friday, September 28, 2012, the performers at Stefan Raab's Grand of the German Länder will include soul star Xavier Naidoo and rapper Kool Savas with their joint project, Xavas. ProSieben will broadcast the event live from Max-Schmeling-Halle in Berlin, beginning at 8:15 p.m.
In the "Bundesvision Song Contest," the German music scene shows what it can do. In Germany's most important music competition, renowned stars, newcomers and insiders' tips will face off in search of the viewers' votes. Host state and defending champion Berlin has placed its hopes in rapper B-Tight. Representing Hamburg is DER KÖNIG TANZT, the solo project by rapper König Boris of the group Fettes Brot. Saarland has entered a hip-hop group, Die Orsons, with rap shooting star Cro on board. His hit, “Easy”, made it to second place in the German single charts. North Rhine Westphalia has pinned its hopes for points from the republic on LUXUSLÄRM. For Bavaria, two "Buvisoco" veterans will be on hand with FIVA & DAS PHANTOM ORCHESTER. The Phantom Orchester features Flo and Rüde, two-thirds of the band Sportfreunde Stiller, who participated in the contest held in 2008.
Each German state is represented in the competition; at least 50 percent of the entry must be sung in German. Local radio stations in the respective states are supporting their candidates. In 2011, Tim Bendzko won the "Bundesvision Song Contest" for Berlin with his song, "Wenn Worte meine Sprache wären", bringing the competition to the German capital city for the third time.
