Broadcast dates for the current season of
the talent show (Saturdays at 8:15 p.m.):
Recall: 31 March – 7 April 2018
Themed semifinals: 14 April – 28 April 2018
Final: 5 May 2018
Our colleague Sven Lüchtenborg made it through the first round of callbacks and is now one of the top 18 contestants on ‘Deutschland sucht den Superstar’ (DSDS). The 21-year-old filmed his third appearance in the latest season of this German talent show in Pilanesberg National Park and Game Reserve, South Africa.
“The setting was amazing, and I was really excited. I had to act calm and focus in front of the jury, though,” says Lüchtenborg, who sang ‘Musik sein’ by Wincent Weiss together with two other contestants. His efforts paid off: His performance was good enough to take him into the top 18.
Two rounds left until the special themed episodes
The second and third rounds of callbacks will be held in South Africa over the next two weekends. Another eight contestants will be weeded out before the top ten film the special themed episodes in the countdown to the final. Tune in to RTL next Saturday (31 March) at 8:15 p.m. to find out if Lüchtenborg will get one step further towards becoming the new DSDS champion.
