Germany debuted in the first edition of North Vision Song Contest and has participated in every edition since then. The German broadcaster, NDR, has been in charge for the country's participation since the first edition. The broadcaster started hosting national selection in every edition since the ninth.

Germany is one of the most successful countries in the contest, having been in the final fifteen out of twent-one attempts, including a eleven edition consecutive qualification-streak since the eleventh edition. The highest position of the country was achieved by Lena in the nineteenth edition with the song "Beat To My Melody". The country is currently ranked second in the North Vision Ranking of Nations and it peaked at the second place after the nineteenth edition, while its worst placement was thirty-sixth after the eighth edition.

Germany has so far hosted one event related to the North Vision Song Contest; the second edition of the pre-qualification round for the tenth edition of the contest. The contest has been broadcast since the first edition by NDR and had several commentators in charge either for radio or television. The spokespersons have been different since the first edition.

History of Germany in North Vision

NDR showed interest on participating in the contest very early. They confirmed their debut a few minutes after the submissions of the contest had opened. Since the ninth edition NDR is hosting a regulary selection. Their best result is so far their third place in the thirteenth edition while their worst result is eighteenth place at the semi-finals in the sixth edition. Germany has been pre-qualified to the final of the fourteenth edition and has yet to participate in the pre-qualification round.

First decade

Germany was one of the first countries to confirm their participation in the contest. They came 8th in the semi-final, qualifying to the final. They ended up coming 19th out of 23 in the final. Ahead of the second edition, originally announced withdrawal from the contest due to lack of support of their entry, but later confirmed after Staubkind made it to the final of the previous edition. Unheilig was chosen internally, and their song was chosen through Ein Lied für Unheilig, an national selection. The winner of the selection "Sei mein Licht" did not have a music video. Because a music video was required for acceptance into the contest, one of the runners-up, "An deiner Seite" was chosen instead.  Adel Tawil approached NDR to suggest that he and Annette Humpe, forming Ich + Ich should try for Germany in the third edition. They were accepted and the song "Vom selben Stern" was later chosen to represent Germany in the third edition. The song participated in the second semi-final, where it failed to qualify for the final - coming 12th, being the first attempt by Germany to qualify for the final. After failing to qualify for the first time in the third edition, NDR decided to send one of Germany's most popular artists: Lena. Gaining many positive reactions, NDR presented her entry shortly after: "Neon (Lonely People)". Germany was allocated in the first half of the first semi-final. Germany qualified fourth from the tenth position. In the final, Lena performed eighteenth and came eigth with 138 points, Germany's best result back then.

After the first top ten finish for Germany, Eisblume was chosen to represent the country with "Wunderkind". However, the song couldn't keep on with the success of Lena, finishing 15th in the semi-final. For the sixth edition, Sarah Engels competed for Germany with the song "Call My Name". Despite being a popular song in Moldova, the song came 18th in the semi-final. Luxuslärm was then chosen to bring the country back to the final, yet failed to do so again, placing 13th in the semi-final. In the eighth edition, Unheilig returned to achieve a second final qualification, however came only 15th in the semi-final. After the change of reference team, NDR confirmed the German participation on May 17. It was first announced that the previous national selection format Ein Lied Für Deutschland will continue, but on May 24 it was announced that a nation selection called "Bundesvision Song Contest" will determine the German entry. The national final kicked off on the 9th June. All 16 states voted to decide the first winner of the Bundesvision Song Contest, live from Cologne. Just 6 days later, on the 15th June, NDR presented the results. The winner was the young Sydney Eggleston with her song "Hit that Drum". Sydney performed 12th at the first semi-final, where she managed to qualify. On 28 July, Sydney opened the Grand final.

On the 23rd of August NDR applied to host the Pre-Qualification Round, and August 26, Germany became the winner of the poll with 33 out of all 131 votes given (being 25,19% of all votes respectively). The Pre-Qualification-Round took place on the 29 August at the TUI-Arena in Hannover. Mollyhaus got drawn into the second semi-final, where they performed on position twelve. Mollyhaus did not reach the final, coming 14th in the second semi-final.  The national selection Bundesvision Song Contest 11 took place in late September.

Third decade

After the top two finish of Lena, Germany had been assured a definite place in the final as being part of the big six. Thus, the country did not have to go through the semi-finals. The entrant was decided by the national selection "Unser Song für den NVSC 20". The selection consisted of four editions, where five acts each made it to the two semi-finals. Of those twenty acts, ten made it to the grand final, where Anna Naklab won the final with her song "Whole", just a few points ahead Lamiya's "Echoes", which made it to the second chance contest. In the grand final, Naklab performed fourth and finished seventeenth, gathering 193 points due to this edition's new voting system. For the twenty-second edition, Germany quickly confirmed it's participation, continuing the selection "Unser Song für den NVSC 21". However, this time only twelve songs competed in one final, where Oonagh became the winner with her song "Aulë und Yavanna". Femme Schmidt placed second with her song "Kill Me", which has been sent in as the German OGAN Second Chance contest entry. Oonagh performed seventeenth in the second semi-final, where she's been announced as one of the ten qualifiers.
