"Rockstars" is a 2022 song by German singer Malik Harris. The song represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin, Italy after winning Germany 12 Points, Germany's national final.[2] It finished in last (25th) place at Eurovision with six points, all from televoting as it received no points from jury votes.[3] The song reached number eight in the German charts.


According to Harris, "Rockstars" was written after Harris watched his favorite episode of The Office, "Finale". A quote from character Andy Bernard, "I wish there was a way to know you’re in the Good Old Days – before you’ve actually left them", would inspire the song for Harris.[4]

Eurovision Song Contest

At Eurovision

According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "

Big Five" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. As a member of the "Big Five", Germany automatically qualifies to compete in the final on 14 May 2022.[5] In addition to their participation in the final, Germany was also required to broadcast and vote in one of the two semi-finals. This was decided via a draw held during the semi-final allocation draw on 25 January 2022, when it was announced that Germany would vote in the second semi-final.[6]
