Eurovision Song Contest 2011

"It's brilliant from start to finish and presented in a cheeky yet masterful way in three languages."

Anke Engelke, Judith Rakers and Stefan Raab received awards for hosting the event and ARD Head of Entertainment Thomas Schreiber, BRAINPOOL's Managing Director Jörg Grabosch, stage designer Florian Wieder and lighting designer Jerry Appelwere also received awards for their contributions.
