First digital release image
5 X Perfect Life.
Five singers performed in the German final and all of them have recorded and released the same two songs, Wildfire and Perfect Life.
Not all artists performed both songs in the three round race, but they all released their versions.
So we already have four coverversions of this years German entry. Sort of.
Instrumental versions of all tracks have also been made available.
The singers are Axel Feige, Yosefin, Helene Nissen and Felicia Lu.
