Dieter Bohlen räumt nach fast 20 Jahren seinen Platz als Jury-Chef in der RTL-Castingshow „Deutschland sucht den Superstar“.
Cologne – The successful RTL formats “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (DSDS) and “Das Supertalent” are reinventing themselves. From the coming season in 2022, for the first time in almost 20 years, DSDS will have a completely new jury. Dieter Bohlen (67) hands over the scepter at the jury desk to his successors. Who they are should be announced in good time.
The finale of this year’s DSDS season on April 3rd is the last show with Bohlen on the chair of the chief judge. “Das Supertalent” is also expected to lure viewers in front of the screens in autumn 2021 with new jurors.
“The right time”
“We would like to express our thanks to the current jury and especially to Dieter Bohlen, who has been the chief judge for many years. With clear judgments and a keen sense for musical mainstream in the best sense of the word, he has played a key role in the long-term success of both shows. After almost two decades of mutual success, now is the right time for change and further development, “explains RTL entertainment director Kai Sturm about the restructuring.
Henning Tewes, Managing Director of RTL Television and Co-Managing Director of TVNOW, adds: “With a completely new jury, DSDS will provide fresh impetus to inspire and excite musical talents and millions of viewers. At the same time, I would also like to thank Dieter Bohlen and all the jurors for their commitment. “DSDS is an” incredibly strong entertainment brand “that has started its triumphal march in almost 60 countries around the world. The success of the format also contributes to reinventing the show over and over again.
The face of the show
DSDS first went on air in 2002 – music producer Bohlen was there from the start and is the face of the show. He shaped them with his sayings for decades. “Das Supertalent” flickered across the screens for the first time in 2007. The jurors changed over and over again in both formats, only Bohlen was always placed. The 15th season of “Supertalent” starts in autumn 2021. (TT.com)
