Satellite was the German entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2010 in Oslo performed by Lena. It was first performed in the final round of Unser Star für Oslo, the talent search created by 2000 Eurovision participant Stefan Raab that would help select the German representative for 2010.

As a Big Four country, the song was automatically qualified for the final and was performed 22nd on the night following Armenia and preceding Portugal. The performance utilized simple staging, no props or gimmicks, and very little choreography. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 246 points, earning Germany its second victory in 28 years. As well, it was the first of the Big Four/Five nations to win the contest since the rule was introduced in 2000, and its first win as a unified country.

The song is also the lead single from Lena's 2010 album My Cassette Player.

Lyrics

I went everywhere for you
I even did my hair for you
I bought new underwear, they blue
And I wore ’em just the other day

Love, you know I’ll fight for you
I left on the porch light for you
Whether you are sweet or cruel
I’m gonna love you either way

Love, oh, love
I gotta tell you how I feel about you
‘Cause I, oh, I
Can’t go a minute without your love

Like a satellite, I’m in orbit all the way around you
And I would fall out into the night
Can’t go a minute without your love

Love, I got it bad for you
I saved the best I have for you
You sometimes make me sad and blue
Wouldn’t have it any other way

Love, my aim is straight and true
Cupid’s arrow is just for you
I even painted my toenails for you
I did it just the other day

Love, oh, love
I gotta tell you how I feel about you
‘Cause I, oh, I
Can’t go a minute without your love

Like a satellite I’m in orbit all the way around you
And I would fall out into the night
Can’t go a minute without your love

Oh, love
I gotta tell you how I feel about you
‘Cause I, oh, I
Can’t go a minute without your love

Where you go, I’ll follow
You set the pace, we take it fast or slow
I’ll follow in your way, oh oh oh

You got me, you got me
A force more powerful then gravity
Its physics, there’s no escape

Love, my aim is straight and true
Cupid’s arrow is just for you
I even painted my toenails for you
I did it just the other day

Love, oh, love
I gotta tell you how I feel about you
‘Cause I, oh, I
Can’t go a minute without your love

Like a satellite I’m in orbit all the way around you
And I would fall out into the night
Can’t go a minute without your love

Oh, love
I gotta tell you how I feel about you
‘Cause I, oh, I
Can’t go a minute without your

Love, oh, love
Love, love, love
