Malik Harris ended up in last place at the ESC final. Dieter Bohlen has now revealed how he assesses the contribution.

Dieter Bohlen (68) shared with his 1.5 million followers on Instagram, as he evaluates the final of the Eurovision Song Contest, which took place in Turin on Saturday evening. “It used to be a competition for composers to see who would write the most beautiful number. Of course, that hasn’t been the case for a long time.” Bohlen added that he was “surprised” that the quality “was really good” and that there were “a few great numbers”.

On the victory of the band Kalush Orchestra from the Ukraine with their song “Stefania”, Bohlen explained that it was “the first war Grand Prix” and “of course very different”. That’s why “the Ukrainians won, although I’ll be honest: it wasn’t the best number, of course”.

“Cheer up, keep going”

For the German contribution – singer Malik Harris (24) ended up in last place – Bohlen also gives his rating: “That might not have been the best number, but he would have deserved such a middle place.” The pop titan also believes, “Somehow we’re not that popular, we’ll never get more votes”. Bohlen continues: “I think people don’t love the Germans at the moment. I have no idea why.” In the direction of Malik Harris, Bohlen said: “Cheer up, it goes on.”
