Germany was represented by husband and wife duo Stone & Stone, with the song '"Verliebt in Dich", at the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 13 May in Dublin. For the third year in succession, the German entry was chosen internally, rather than through a public final, by broadcaster Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk.

The choice of "Verliebt in Dich" caused much adverse comment in Germany. Surprise was expressed that an internal selection had produced an act barely known to the general public, and moreover with a song which was not only undistinguished, but also totally wrong in style for Eurovision.

At Eurovision[edit]

On the night of the final Stone & Stone performed 3rd in the running order, following Ireland and preceding Bosnia-Herzegovina. Following the show, lead singer Cheyenne Stone was heavily criticised both for a very shaky, toneless and at times off-key vocal performance, and for her choice of stage outfit – a shapeless half-sleeve floor-length white dress which, it was said, looked like a nightgown. The widely predicted bad result materialised, as "Verliebt in Dich" was saved from the ignominy of nul-points only by 1 point received from Malta, placing Germany last of the 23 entries. The German jury awarded its 12 points to Sweden.[1]
