  • Elaiza was formed in 2013 by members Elżbieta “Ela” Steinmetz, Yvonne Grünwald, and Natalie Plöger. Elżbieta, originally from Ukraine, took to music early, by beginning as a singer and songwriter at a studio in Berlin.

    Soon after the formation, Elaiza released their first LP titled “March 28.” Also, they released an EP in January 2014, featuring three songs, including their Eurovision entry “Is It Right.” Not long after, Elaiza won the “Best Newcomer Award” at the “Women of the World Festival 2014.”


  • Elaiza initially tried for Eurovision by submitting their songs on Youtube in hopes of being chosen for the club concert for “Unser Song für Dänemark.” They were indeed chosen and went on to winning the club concert, securing them as the eighth finalist (wildcard) on March 13.

    At the final of “Unser Song für Dänemark,” Elaiza managed to make it through each round, ending up against Unheilig. In the third and final round, it was revealed that Elaiza had won with 55% of the public’s vote with their song “Is It Right.”

    He’s gotta pen in his hand

    a piece of paper starin’ back

    He could write like a man

    a novel life back on track

     

    Maybe drama, or a poem

    but still he doesn’t know

    the time is ticking in his ear

    the holy silence dissappears

     

    Is it right or is it wrong??

    I can’t go on! you can’t go on!

    If you say yes…or even no,

    you don’t know how and where to go

     

    She turns over and looks at him

    she tries to feel, and can’t feel anything

    but it’s so hard to say goodbye,

    even when you know, that it’s right.

    When it’s all not what you thought

    and a friendship is not enough

    when you long to feel alive

    and take the chance to give it up

     

    Is it right or is it wrong?

    I can’t go on, you can’t go on

    If you say yes, or even no,

    you don’t know how and where to go

     

    I know, it’s not easy to decide,

    to find your own direction

    Oh, the risk is too high

    but you can’t hide

     

    Is it right or is it wrong?

    I can go on, you can go on

    If you say yes, or even no,

    you don’t know how and where to go
