Popular artists tried their luck tonight in the German selection for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, Unser Song für Malmö. The show was broadcasted live from the TUI Arena in Hanover. After an exciting voting, Cascada won the selection with their addictive tune Glorious which follows the steps of last year’s winner Euphoria. The song won the voting with 30 points. During the radio, televoting and jury voting, Cascada turned out to be the best of all twelve acts. LaBrassBanda got full votes from all nine radio stations. In the jury voting, LaBrassBanda only ended up in tenth place, with Cascada being third. In the televoting, LaBrassBanda gained ten points, with Cascada taking the twelve and the well-deserved victory tonight.

Lead singer Nathalie Horler will now take Cascada to Malmö to fly the German flag there. Cascada are considered one of the leaders in popularising Eurodance in the U.S. and in recent years worldwide, thanks to a more electro-pop oriented mainstream sound. The group are best known for their hit singles Everytime We Touch, What Hurts the Most, and Evacuate the Dancefloor. Cascada have sold over 20 million albums all over the world and have an estimated 15 million digital downloads. The music video for "Glorious" was released on 1 February 2013 and the single was released a week later on 8 February. Germany has participated in every Eurovision Song Contest since its beginning in 1956 and won two contests, in 1982 and 2010.
