Conchita Wurst & Steven Gätjen to Present Free European Song Contest


Conchita Wurst, winner of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2014, and Steven Gätjen are set to present the new Free European Singing Competition from Stefan Raab and ProSieben.

At the Free European Song Contest—produced by Raab TV, part of Brainpool, a Banijay Group company—prominent musicians will perform their songs live for their country of origin in ProSieben’s Cologne-based studio. The audience will award points and select the first winner of the new, free European song competition, which will air live on Saturday, May 16, at 8:15 p.m. on ProSieben and Joyn.

ProSieben CEO Daniel Rosemann said: “Conchita and Steven are the perfect choice for a big, musical evening. Conchita thrilled millions of people with his Eurovision Song Contest performance and won the contest. No one is better placed for this European musical idea. Steven is at home at the world’s big galas and the perfect host with outstanding live experience.”
