Meet the Germans gets a glittery makeover as presenter Rachel Stewart takes a look at Germany's Eurovision past and present.

Watch video 04:37

Once a year, countries across Europe (plus Australia) come together for a night of music, glitz and glamour: the Eurovision Song Contest.

For this week's Meet the Germans, Rachel grabs the mic to tell you all about Germany's Eurovision past and present. There's glitter, superfans and a few doses of "nul points." 

Rachel moved from the UK to Germany in 2016. As a relative newcomer she casts a fresh eye over German clichés and shares her experiences of settling into German life. Every two weeks she explores a new topic for Meet the Germans — from unusual bans to meaty cuisine or haunted castles.
