Cascada, a trio made up of a lead vocalist, a songwriter and a producer was actually devised as a project name according to Nathalie Horler who will be representing Germany at the upcoming edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. In a press conference which she gave following her second technical rehearsal prior to the final taking place on Saturday evening, it was revealed that the opportunity to take part in this competition came directly from Universal Music Germany, the record label responsible for the release of their music. Nathalie jumped at the opportunity to do the Eurovision Song Contest because it is a once in a lifetime sort of opportunity and states the selection of Cascada as 'very lucky'.

Glorious, a radio hit in several countries prior to the performance of Cascada at the Eurovision Song Contest has also peaked at number #6 on the German charts making it the most successful single for the group in four years, since their worldwide smash hit, Evacuate The Dancefloor. Nathalie is clearly overjoyed at the idea of representing Germany but is keeping her expectations relatively low, stating that whilst succeeding and achieving one of the top positions will be positive, it is not the most important thing. Cascada have just released a best of album earlier this year, and this is one of the means of promotion. In a funny remark, Nathalie went on record stating 'If this goes to hell, I could work in a hotel', with reference to her background allowing her to learn both English and German. At the end of the press conference, she drew the allocation for Germany in the final and thus they will perform in the first half. Considering the several ballads in the draw, the producers might select Glorious as the opening number.  Stay tuned to for more news updates about the 2013 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest.
