Munich – He was the voice of the ESC for 26 years, and in 2024 Peter Urban will host the Eurovision Song Contest for the last time. Reason enough for him to look back on the most exciting moments of his career, chat about impressive encounters with stars and reveal what he honestly thinks of all the talent shows on TV.

These casting show candidates have the skills to sing well, but that's not enough for a career. "And living as a musician these days, making money, has become even more difficult.
