The German representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 was determined through the “Unser Star für Baku” talent show. A number of heats were held, reducing the 20 selected finalists to 2. These two acts then performed four potential Eurovision songs: 2 songs were performed by both artists, with the other 2 songs being performed exclusively by one of the acts. The favourite song for each artist was then determined by televoting, with another televote selecting the winning act.
