In the Eurovision Song Contest, Germany finished joint 11th with 53 points. The highest vote came from Sweden - 10 points.

In an interview at the aftershow party of the Eurovision Song Contest, Lou was asked why she did not reach a better position. She answered that she was too old, too fat and too ugly. That quote made it to the front page of BILD the Monday after the contest. Previously, Lou had made it to front page of that newspaper stating that she lost weight for Riga and reduced her wrinkles with Botox.

Lou is the stage name of Louise Hoffner (born October 27, 1963 in Waghäusel), a German pop singer. She was the sixth child of her parents and was immediately surrounded by her elder brothers and sisters. The happy-go-lucky, orange-haired singer has toured with her band for over 15 years, in Germany as well as abroad.
