About four weeks ago he was in the middle of the biggest adventure of his life. In the end, Marius Behr (29) came home in 17th out of 40 at the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in Turin (1st). The jury awarded his “Boys Do Cry” contribution a good 78 points, and he received “Zero Points” from the audience. A moment that Bear finds difficult to meet on site in Turin.

“I got over it. Focus on the positive things I experienced there,” the singer later says. Participating in the biggest music competition in the world has been an emotional journey for him. “I have never experienced so many highs and lows in my life like this,” he says. This short time.” Above all, the low rating of the TV audience hit the Appenzeller. “I prepared for this performance for half a year and made a plan. This didn’t quite work. Logically, I was disappointed in the end.”
Marius Hogley, as Marius Behr’s real name is, is now looking to the future. “After the Economic and Social Council session, I took a few days off with my friends. Everyone around me encouraged me, and I also received a lot of positive comments on social media.” The excerpt from the last show went viral, as British ESC runner-up Sam Ryder (32) hugged his opponent after losing ground zero. Today I can say: I am proud of what I achieved it. This experience makes me a greater artist.”

Bear uses his energy for new music. He was on stage at the ZDF “Fernsehgarten” and also spent several days in Great Britain working on songs there. “In London, but also in the Exeter countryside. Writing new songs and traveling abroad motivates me. And of course I look forward to the upcoming concerts at the summer festivals.”
Summer festival performances
In the coming weeks, Bear will present various outdoor shows. He will be on stage at the Paléo Festival, Lumnezia Open Air and Heitere Open Air. “We’re also currently working on opening major concert openings,” Bear reveals. “So I definitely won’t get bored.”
