Eurovision 2019 Germany song: Who is S!sters? Could Germany take Eurovision victory?May 14, 2019
The 64th Eurovision Song Contest is being held in Tel Aviv, Israel. The first semifinals will take place tonight and on May 16, with the final being held on May 18. You can watch it live at 8pm BST (9pm CEST) HERE, or on BBC4. There are some incredible acts to watch this year, including Britain’s own Michael Rice. And among them are German entry S!sters.
Who is S!sters?
The duo S!sters are not sisters – in fact, they’re not related at all.
Carlotta Truman (19) and Laurita Spinelli (26) have only recently joined forces, teaming up for Eurovision.
But despite not being together long, they’re hoping to turn Germanys run of back luck around in the contest.
WHO IS HOSTING THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST?
Since 2015, Germany has come in last place twice, receiving an infamous nil point in 2015.
But this could be the year things turn around for the country, with S!sters promising a stunning performance.
Laurita will bring experience to the competition – she is currently a background singer for Lena, who won the contest for Germany in 2010.
And Carlotta is no stranger to competitions either. In 2014, she reached the final of Germany’s version of The Voice Kids.
She also performed on Willkommen 2018, the country’s version of Jools’ Annual Hootenanny.
This year, they’ll belt out their song Sister for the Eurovision Song Contest final 2019.
Interestingly, the song was penned by Canadian Laurell Barker, who also co-wrote the UK’s entry, Bigger Than Us.
What are the odds on winning?
While S!sters will be doing everything they can to turn Germany’s Eurovision fate around, the odds aren’t with them at the moment.
According to Betfair bookmakers, Germany has a 150/1 chance of winning – the same chance as the UK.
Leading the race is the Netherlands with 9/4, followed by Sweden with 4/1 and Russia and France, both with 7/1.
