Unser Star für Oslo



Unser Star für Oslo [Our star for Oslo]

The concept behind "Unser Star für Oslo [Our star for Oslo]" is an eight-part series that fulfills a "national duty". Together with Das Erste, ProSieben and ARD's pop and youth radio stations, Stefan Raab is looking for the German entry to the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest to take place in Norway in 2010. 1LIVE presenter Sabine Heinrich and ProSieben presenter Matthias Opdenhövel provide commentary throughout the selection shows. The viewers vote via telephone and text message for who should be given the ticket to Oslo.

Ten candidates compete in each of the first two selection shows (Febraury 2nd and 9th on ProSieben) and only five advance to the next round. Two musicians are selected over the course of the next five shows (three selection shows and the semi-finals airing on ProSieben and the quarterfinals airing on Das Erste) to proceed to the "Unser Star für Oslo" finals to be broadcast on Das Erste on March 12th.

As president of the jury, Stefan Raab rates the candidates' performances along with a rotating cast of two co-jurors from the music and entertainment industry. Joining him are Marius Müller-Westernhagen, Anke Engelke, Adel Tawil, Joy Denalane, Barbara Schöneberger, Xavier Naidoo and many others. But who advances to the next round is entirely up to the viewers.

And it became a major national event. Over 5,000 musicians entered to compete in the first round of castings for the preliminary shows in 2010. The 20 candidates with the most talent were invited to "Unser Star für Oslo".

On March 12th 2010, TV viewers made their decision: Lena Meyer-Landrut is "Unser Star für Oslo". She will represent Germany in Norway at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Satellite" by Julie Frost and John Gordon. Jennifer Braun came in second in the competition.

A total of 4.5 million viewers tuned in to the show (14.6 percent market share), with a peak of 6.81 million (26.2 percent market share). The market share totaled 22.7 percent (0.74 million) among 14 to 29 year-olds and 20.3 percent (20.5 percent) among 14 to 49 year-olds.

Das Erste will broadcast the Eurovision Song Contest finale live from the Norwegian capital on Saturday, May 29th at 9:00 pm.
