Roman Lob's Alone enters at # 42, Conflicted at 51.
Ornella's version of Standing Still (see below) enters the top 100 in Germany at #77. Her final song Quietly enters at #24 and the third song Alone at #69. All songs exept Romans winner spent just one week on the German top 100

Two singers, Roman Lob and Ornella De Santis, have survived the talent shows and each sang three songs. One song  unique to each singer, they both sing the other two songs each in differtent arrangements.
Both artists sang Standing Still but only Roman Lob took the song to the ultimate two-song final.
It's the same procedure that got Lena Meyer Landruth her Satellite and Germany their 2nd Eurovision victory in 2010.

Coverversion... sort of
As Ornella De Santis also performed and recorded the winning song Standing Still, the first coverversion of 2012 is a fact.
Ornella's version is also available as a download through the same sources. I don't know yet if there will be a cdsingle of Ornella's songs.
Ornella's final songs was Alone and her third song was Quietly.
