Eurovision Song Award goes to Germany

In the 55th year of the Eurovision Song Contest, Germany has claimed the prize for the second time. The last time Germany had won was 28 years ago with Nicole contributing her song Ein bisschen Frieden.

Back then it was still called the Grand Prix d’Eurovision de la Chanson. We just used to call it the Grand Prix for short.

Lena, the 19-year-old artist, had gotten herself well prepared with an English tutor. A bit of credit should also go to him/her as I found her pronunciation to be excellent, at least to my ears.

On a slightly different note, Lena’s hometown of Hannover, is supposed to be the home of the High German language (but often disputed).

  1. Speaking as a Brit, I found some of her pronunciation to be quite bad. I was quite glad to find the lyrics on to help me understand some parts of it.

  2. As a language teacher I have seen many students come and go, some with heavy accents and some with very good hearing.
    Lena definitely falls into the latter category. She may not sound like a native British speaker to your ears, but she sounds wonderful to mine 🙂

  3. The faux accent is supposed to be attributed to her (male) English teacher. I personally find it rather difficult to listen to. It would be okay as an authentic workman’s dialect… but that’s the only criticismm I have. She made a good appearance and won the hearts of many people.

  4. DISLIKE 😉

  5. Kathrin A. says

    Unglaublich, deutschlands Lena Meyer-Landrut hat es geschafft..

  6. In my opinion, if she gets her slightly strange accent fixed, Lena could be even more successful.
