Germany's Eurovision entry investigated after plagiarism claim

Germany's entry for this year's Eurovision Song Contest is being investigated after allegations of plagiarism.

Cascada's lead singer Natalie Horler insists they are two different songs." .. but a phonetics expert is quoted as saying the two songs are "absolutely identical" at the beginning.
