Vienna – The third qualifying round of the ORF casting show “Stramania 21” went on TV on Friday. Eight other talents have bought the ticket for the semifinals. With nostalgia and holiday mood at the show.

One of the ticket buyers is the Tyrolean Adrian Haslwanter (27), who with Bill Ramsey’s “Sugar Puppet” probably performed the oldest title at “Starmania” to date. The electrical engineer, who not only plays the guitar and sings, but also cooks in his free time and rides his mountain bike, sang his way into the semi-finals. “I didn’t expect it,” says Haslwanter of the TT. The next surprise came when not only his girlfriend, but also his family and fans picked him up from the train station in Innsbruck on Saturday.

Performing without a live audience, “has its own character, maybe that’s why I was less nervous,” continues Haslwanter. “I wanted to put a smile on people’s faces.”

Maria Aschenwald did not get any further. She wanted to take part in the show as early as 2002, but had to sit out because of her pregnancy. Meanwhile her son has grown up and she sang “Weus’d a Herz hast wia a Bergwerk” by Rainhard Fendrich. (TT, pink)
