Florian Silbereisen becomes a juror for “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”. A piece of news that surprised the pop star himself.

Wednesday evening (June 23rd) the bomb burst: Pop star Florian Silbereisen (39) inherits Dieter Bohlen (67, “You’re My Heart, You’re My Soul”) as a juror for the RTL format “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”. Previously, rumors of this kind were already floating around, but for Silbereisen itself it was apparently a surprise. “Everyone knew, except me,” said the 39-year-old in an interview with “Bild live”. At the moment he is still “overwhelmed with the overall situation”.

Although the request was received by his management some time ago, it went “very, very quickly” and became “very quickly, very specific”. He himself first had to read in the media what was in store for him, continued Silbereisen. And: So far, he has not signed any contract.

“Even more exciting and even more turbulent”

The multi-talent describes what made him agree: “Last year I was allowed to take part in ‘DSDS’ and I noticed that I have a lot of fun helping young talents and giving them theirs To accompany the trip. ” The new jury was also apparently convinced by the new concept, which will make the show “even more exciting and even more turbulent”.

Will he remain the “dream ship” captain?

Due to his new job, Silbereisen could run into scheduling problems. After all, he is still the captain of the ZDF “dream ship” and the musician also wants to continue to moderate his “Feste der Volksmusik”, which are produced by the MDR. In addition, there are his own musical projects, with which he will go on a “big live tour” again next year, as Silbereisen stated.

He and his team would certainly coordinate the appointments so that “everything fits under one roof”. When asked whether he would continue to navigate the “dream ship” as captain through the oceans, Silbereisen did not give a clear answer: “Now let’s do one thing after the other.”
