Biography

Leon is a German singer, best known for his participation in the 1996 Eurovision Song Contest, when he was controversially eliminated at the pre-selection stage. The unexpected result caused consternation in Germany and left the European Broadcasting Union facing the situation where its largest contributor at the time had to miss the contest. To avoid a re-occurrence in future years, the EBU introduced the controversial “Big Four” rule whereby Germany, along with France, Spain and United Kingdom (later become “Big Five” with Italy’s return in 2011) as the largest contributors, would be guaranteed a place in the Eurovision final each year. 

Leon released his first album “Leon” in 1996
