OriginsEdit

The concept of the Bundesvision Song Contest was first introduced during episode 657 of the late-night television comedy talk show TV total by presenter Stefan Raab on 20 December 2004. The structure of the Bundesvision Song Contest is very similar to that of the Eurovision Song Contest, held among European countries; the Bundesvision Song Contest uses the sixteen states of Germany, only songs with (at least partially) German-speaking text were allowed, Stefan Raab also announced that the winning state would host the Bundesvision Song Contest 2006.

From 17 January 2005, the participants and their states were presented on TV total, for four weeks a themed evening was organised for each artist, in addition to a discussion with Raab about the chosen song.

Because suitable representatives were not found for all states, some artists represented states, to which they had no or only a very indirect tie, earning some criticism of the contest, for example, Cologne based band Klee representing Saarland, and not North Rhine-Westphalia.
