Annemarie Eilfeld (born 2 May 1990 in Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Saxony-Anhalt) is a German singer and songwriter, best known for being a former contestant of Deutschland sucht den Superstar, the German version of the Idols franchise. She released her first single, "Animal Instinct," in May 2010.
Annemarie Eilfeld is the daughter of a music teacher and an estate agent. In Eilfeld's early childhood her family moved from Wittenberg to Dessau-Roßlau. At the age of seven, she began an education in music and dance. Over the following years, she took part in various local song contests. In 2004, she participated in Germany’s casting show Star Search 2 and qualified for the finals. This was closely followed by her debut single "C the light" (Edel Music), which appeared under the name "Anne Marie."
Between 2005 and 2008, she occasionally performed on stage with different local bands.
Deutschland sucht den Superstar
In 2009's casting show Deutschland sucht den Superstar (DSDS), broadcast on RTL, she made it to the top three. In contrast to the generally negative views of the jury, the German tabloid Bild-Zeitung supported Eilfeld, who was pushed into the role of a "super-bitch" throughout the show. Due to contractual agreements, Eilfeld has had to take a three-month break from publishing new music, like all former DSDS contestants.
