Singer Pietro Lombardi is no longer on the jury of the RTL casting show “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”. Successors for the perky cap wearer are already under discussion.
The 28-year-old wrote on Instagram on Monday: “I wish you a lot of fun with the new season. Have fun with the new jury and every candidate. (…) Thanks to my fans who always believe in me. New things will come. ”Choreography expert Oana Nechiti (32) will also vacate her chair. “In addition to Dieter Bohlen, there will be a completely new jury,” said an RTL spokeswoman in Cologne upon request. “We will announce the jurors in the next few days.” Dieter Bohlen will remain chief juror. First, the “Bild” newspaper reported the change online on Monday.
Singer Xavier Naidoo had already lost his place on the jury in March after allegations of racism against him. The trigger was a video that appeared on the Internet, in which you can see him singing a song with controversial lines of text. Provisional Florian Silbereisen (39) had taken the place.
According to the “Bild” report, Maite Kelly (40, “Why didn’t you say no?”) From the Kelly Family will join the new season. In addition, singer Michael Wendler (48, “She loves the DJ”) will appear as a sidekick of 66-year-old Bohlen. The negotiations are “already well advanced”, “Bild” claims to have learned. Another position on the jury should go to a musician from the rap scene.
