Sadi withdraws from Unser Song 2017, replaced by Yosefin
Wilhelm "Sadi" Richter has withdrawn from the Germany national selection for Eurovision 2017, Unser Song 2017, for personal reasons associated with rumors of a court appearance.
Sadi stated: "Reports about me are causing so much trouble, I would first like to clarify and process this. I myself am amazed at what I am accused of. I was totally looking forward to attending, but I would not want to do it under these circumstances and that is why I will not participate on February 9 in Cologne."
Yosefin Buohler will replace Sadi in Unser Song 2017.
Unser Song 2017 will air on February 9, where the winner will go on to represent Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine.
