LOI is also nominated for Best Newcomer Act.Loi, whose real name is Leonie Greiner, has been studying for a bachelor's degree in pop music design at the Popakademie since 2021. The 18-year-old gained fame on the social media platform TikTok, where she mainly uploaded cover songs and won many fans with her dark, powerful voice. She was also a finalist in the casting show "The Voice Kids" in 2017. Loi is managed by Felix Volk, who also studied at the Popakademie and completed his bachelor's degree in music business in 2021.
