Amira Pocher struggles with the new regulations of the show
This year’s season of “Let’s Dance” has been accompanied by the corona pandemic since the beginning. Again and again, jury members or participants fail due to a positive test. On Friday, March 11, 2022, three candidates were unable to return to the dance floor. The producers decided that no dancing couple would have to leave the show that day. The sick dancers can perform as usual in the coming week. For Amira Pocher, 29, who is a candidate herself, this regulation is questionable.
In the podcast “The Pochers here!” complains the wife of Oliver Pocher, 44, about the current situation. “I think everyone will get it this season,” Amira explains to her husband. Olli doesn’t see a problem with that: If Amira hits it, she would simply be able to appear on the upcoming show. “Yes, I think that’s just so stupid about it. Of course you don’t choose it. But it’s not fair competition either if someone keeps missing a week who might have been kicked out that week. He has one Corona wildcard.” A regulation that may still bother you now. But if Amira catches it herself, she’ll be grateful if she gets another chance.

Surprise! New regulations for the third show
This has never happened before! Everything is different in the third show of “Let’s Dance”: Since Caroline Bosbach, 32, Lilly zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, 49, and Timur Ülker, 32, are canceled due to corona, only nine instead of twelve dance couples appear in today’s show. For the sake of fairness, no dancing couple will have to leave the competition on March 11, as RTL now announces. Picking up the phone is still worth it, however, because the duo with the most calls for the coming week will receive a bonus point.
The fact that fewer celebrities are hovering over the floor and the decision is no longer necessary also reduces the airtime. The program can therefore be seen on TV from 8:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. In addition, viewers can look forward to a special performance by professional dancer Evgeny Vinokurov, 31, and his wife Nina Bezzubova.
Janin Ullmann: Blood on the dance floor – a surgeon had to help
Unfortunate incident during the rehearsals for “Let’s Dance”! “We were just rehearsing and somehow it bled here for me,” said Janin Ullmann, 40, of the moment of shock in an interview with RTL. Her dance partner Zsolt Sándor Cseke, 34, first noticed the red spot on the right side of her stomach.
A doctor, who is also a surgeon, assessed the injury immediately. “Up until a few minutes ago, I still had a liver spot that’s half torn off,” said Janin and then stopped briefly with her description. “That sounds very brutal now…” But fortunately everything isn’t that bad. The moderator was able to laugh again after the little shock. “He just had a little surgery, just cut away. I look… ‘Let’s Dance’ is making me an absolute wreck physically,” she joked.
On Friday (March 11, 2022) Janin Ullmann and her dance partner have to put a contemporary on the floor. Viewers will find out how well the two perform from 8:30 p.m. on RTL.

Bastian Bielendorfer is ready for the Cha Cha Cha after illness
In addition to various illness-related absences, a celebrity is at least celebrating his comeback on “Let’s Dance” this week. Bastian Bielendorfer, 37, had to take a break due to a cold. In show three he is back, as RTL announces, and wants to win the hearts of the viewers again with his team “Sexrakete” from 8.30 p.m.
Together with dance partner Ekaterina Leonova, 34, he then puts a freshly cured Cha Cha Cha on the floor to the hit “Sexy And I Know It” by LMFAO. There has been a lot of training for this in the past few days, as Ekat shows with a new post on Instagram. “Team #sexrakete is now pushing the slider for sexiness to level 11 neon light,” she writes about the picture that shows the two in a lascivious pose. “And as Basti says: “It will be a hot cha-cha: lascivious poses, horny bodies, sharper than the neighbor’s lumpi and hotter than a frikandel fresh from the frying pan. [sic]”We’re excited to see if they keep those promises on Friday, March 11, 2022.

“Let’s Dance” comeback by Cheyenne Ochsenknecht possible
Cheyenne Ochsenknecht, 21, was not only “extremely surprised” by her “Let’s Dance” break in episode two, as she later revealed to RTL. Meanwhile, tears came to her. The other professionals and celebrities were also shocked. Dance partner Evgeny Vinokurov, 31, became more explicit, describing the jury’s criticism as “nonsense”, according to RTL.
Now the dancing couple could be lucky in disguise. Because of the corona chaos – more and more professionals and candidates are canceled for the third show – it is becoming more and more likely that Cheyenne will be able to celebrate a comeback on the dance floor. In her Instagram story, little Mavie’s mother has now revealed that she is still ready. “I’m driving now for testing. I’m still on call for ‘Let’s Dance’. So it can […] I’m sure I’ll come in,” explains the influencer while she’s on her way to the test center. Who knows, maybe Cheyenne Ochsenknecht will get a second chance after all…

“Let’s Dance”: After this dance came a surprising call
Massimo Sinató, 41, and Amira Pocher, 29, danced an intimate Slowfox in the second competition show of “Let’s Dance” last Friday, March 4, 2022. The jury was satisfied, but still saw room for improvement and gave Amira a total of 17 points for her performance.
After the dance, the couple headed back to join the other celebrities and professionals when suddenly Massimo’s phone rang. “My wife called after dancing, Rebecca, and said, ‘Amira just has to stand there and look good,'” Sinató now reveals to RTL. The model seems to have absolutely no problem with jealousy, Rebecca herself took part in the popular dance show in 2012 and knows that many of the dances get pretty close.
