* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Much has been said about Lena's unusual accent when speaking and singing in English. Though born and raised in Germany, her English accent has been described as sounding like a mix of Cockney, American, and Australian! Given that her primary musical influences are of British and American descent, it's probably not an accident. Her English tutor was from the same area as Music/LilyAllen and Creator/AlfieAllen, which is the RP-Cockney mix you hear.

'''Lena Johanna Therese Meyer-Landrut''' (born 23 May 1991), known professionally as '''Lena''', is a German singer-songwriter and media personality.

Lena is perhaps best known for representing Germany at the 2010 Series/EurovisionSongContest, where she won with the song "Satellite." Even before the competition, Lena was widely tipped by ''Website/{{Google}}'' --of all places-- to win, based on the volume of searches for her name in participating Eurovision countries.

Lena's victory made her the first representative of a Big Five nation [[note]]along with Spain, the United Kingdom, France, and Italy (since 2011) as the biggest financial contributors of the contest who automatically qualify for the final[[/note]] to garner their country a win since the system was implemented in 2002; she currently remains the only one to do so.

She returned to the Eurovision stage for its 2011 contest, making Lena the third-ever reigning winner (and the first in a half-century) to compete in two consecutive years; she ultimately placed tenth in the final, losing to UsefulNotes/{{Azerbaijan}}'s "Running Scared" by Ell & Nikki.

In 2013, Lena joined Germany's version of ''Series/TheVoice Kids'' as a coach, where she served for four seasons. She also voiced Poppy (played originally by Creator/AnnaKendrick) in the German dub of ''WesternAnimation/{{Trolls}}''.
