Aly Ryan, one of the performers in the German national selection for Eurovision 2019, has hit out at the German broadcaster responsible for the contest and claimed that the result of the competition was “rigged”.

In a series of tweets regarding the subject, Aly addresses the numerous Eurovision fans who enquired about the possibility of her representing Germany in Eurovision 2020.

The “Wear Your Love” singer’s initial tweet suggested she would only consider an internal selection but would not go through the same selection process again.

When questioned further by Twitter followers, Ryan reiterated her love for her country, but slammed the selection system and suggested that the final choice may not have been in the hands of the German public;

Of course, there must be two sides to every story, and we are unlikely to ever truly know what may have happened behind the scenes at Unser Lied für Israel, but it is certainly interesting nonetheless to see the strong perspective of an artist who took part in the selection.

Germany will take part as ever in Rotterdam and look set to use a similar selection method in 2020, as the German broadcaster had previously requested local Eurovision fans to join the jury for the national final next year.
