With the help from the songwriters of hits with The Wanted, JLS and Cheryl Cole, Roman Lob is certainly ‘standing still’ in Baku come Saturday. We’re only a week away from the annual Eurovision Song Contest. I’ve listened quite a lot to the various participants who will compete Sweden’s Loreen.
Roman Lob won the honors of representing Germany via the series ‘Unser Star für Baku.’ He is also the singer of Rooftop Kingdom. Lob was born in German Düsseldorf some 21 years ago. No stranger to talent shows, he first joined ‘Deutschland sucht den Superstar’ back in 2006. It’s the German version of Simon Fuller’s Idol franchise. Lob, unfortunately had to quit the contest due to a vocal cord infection.

‘Standing Still’ peaked at No.3 I native Germany. The Poplight blog is happy about Germany’s choice of Roman Lob, leaving Lena at home this time. TV Latest says ‘Standing Still’ ‘sounds like a pleasant rebuttal to last year’s winning entry “Running Scared” from Azerbaijan.’
According to T-Online’s entertainment section Loreen remains one of the favorites to win this year’s ESC.
