Allemagne 1995

Germany was represented by husband and wife duo Stone & Stone, with the song ‘ »Verliebt in Dich« , at the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 13 May in Dublin. For the third year in succession, the German entry was chosen internally, rather than through a public final, by broadcaster Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk.

The choice of « Verliebt in Dich » caused much adverse comment in Germany. Surprise was expressed that an internal selection had produced an act barely known to the general public, and moreover with a song which was not only undistinguished, but also totally wrong in style for Eurovision.

On the night of the final Stone & Stone performed 3rd in the running order, following Ireland and preceding Bosnia-Herzegovina. Following the show, lead singer Cheyenne Stone was heavily criticised both for a very shaky, toneless and at times off-key vocal performance, and for her choice of stage outfit – a shapeless half-sleeve floor-length white dress which, it was said, looked like a nightgown. The widely predicted bad result materialised, as « Verliebt in Dich » was saved from the ignominy of nul-points only by 1 point received from Malta, placing Germany last of the 23 entries. The German jury awarded its 12 points to Sweden.[1]
