WELTHAUPTSTADT GERMANIA: WorldVision Song Contest is really big in the Großdeutches Reich of Bad Nazis, despite the fact that the country has only participated three times. However, there might be an explanation for this. The first time Bad Nazis competed, in the 38th edition, the entry was chosen by the old Führer himself, and the performer was none other than his own wife, Marlene Heidler, a very popular artist, actress and model in her home country. The Bad Nazis managed to somehow combine a song about love for WorldVision, and a message of world peace, with blatant Nazi propaganda. Perhaps surprisingly, the entry ended quite well, just outside the top ten. Not bad for a beginner.
Next time, the Führer’s teenage daughter got to choose the entry, and she chose the rockabilly band Der Luftwaffe, who performed a song that made fun of Hermann Göring’s gluttony. This time Bad Nazis finished last, and outraged, they left the contest. A few editions later they returned, and an Schlagerfestivalenführer, named Birchmann, had been appointed to select the next contestant. However, the Führer was unhappy with the result, and decided to let an international jury choose the contestant. The result was a success, and Nad Nazis finished just outside the top 10 once again.
However, things would take a turn towards the unexpected. The Führer had previously turned down a cooperation with Gertrude Pullman of the EDO, but upon seeing and hearing her performance, the arrows of Cupid hit him. He was completely lost to her, left his family and resigned from his position as dictator of the Reich just to be with her. What Gertrude herself thinks of all this is still unknown.
Given this sudden power vacuum it’s uncertain if Bad Nazis actually will find time to compete this edition, but here comes the interesting part: While baroness Claudia von Käse, Reichsführerin of the SS, temporarily has taken over as head of state and head of government, voices has been raised that the new leader should be elected, just like how the winner is chosen in WorldVision! Contrary to what many might believe, there hasn’t been much objection against that idea, not even from state or party officials. There might be several reasons for that, such as that it according to Bad Nazi ideology would be similar to the way the old Germanic tribes elected their kings, or that if this form of voting would include a jury and therefore could prevent the people from electing the wrong leader, but it might just as well be because those in power also love WorldVision. And how could they not, when the competion already has been the cause of so much drama and joy in their nation?
Could it really be that a song contest will help a national socialist dictatorship to become a little more democratic? Only time will tell. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if it would turn out that way?
