Perfect Life, written by acclaimed songwriter Lindy Robbins, Dave Bassett, Lindsey Ray, was chosen via televote as the song Levina should sing to represent Germany.

Lead writer Robbins has quite the background, having written songs for Anastacia, the Backstreet Boys, Faith Hill, and Shaggy, Jason Derulo, David Guetta, Olly Murs, and Demi Lovato.

Why does Germany’s Eurovision entry sound so familiar?

Because the opening bars are basically David Guetta’s Titanium, really.
