Before the new season “Let’s Dance” starts next spring, RTL is bringing five more successful celebrity dancers and professional dancers back onto the floor. In “Let’s Dance – The Big Christmas Show” Lili Paul-Roncalli fights with Massimo Sinató, Rúrik Gíslason with Malika Dzumaev, Mathias Mester with Renata Lusin, Janin Ullmann with Zsolt Sándor Cseke and René Casselly with Kathrin Menzinger for the title “Christmas Dancing Star” – and 10,000 euros for a good cause.
Lili Paul-Roncalli, winner of 2020, started and “apparently she hasn’t forgotten anything”, as moderator Daniel Hartwich noted directly after the dance. “You’re better than back then,” said Jorge González even and Motsi Mabuse only found words of praise for the artist. “It’s glamor on the floor again,” summarized Joachim Llambi. They still didn’t get full marks. Llambi was only able to get eight points and was initially booed loudly by the audience.

“Let’s Dance” candidate jokes about Llambi’s scoring
In general, Joachim Llambi apparently needed a little longer to get into a more contemplative or even good-natured mood. He also had rather critical words for the first appearance of Mathias Mester and Renata Lusin (both took third place on “Let’s Dance” this year). He found it “entertaining,” but “unfortunately there were one or two things in there again,” he noted.
In view of this verdict, Mathias joked already looking at the points: “I’m looking forward to the gift.” He may not have been entirely satisfied with the 23 points.

René Cassely and Kathrin Menzinger should also not have been completely satisfied after their first dance – also thanks to juror Llambi. Although the two got standing ovations from all sides and Motsi announced, “I’m just a fan of yours”, it wasn’t enough for the full 30 points – even with an announcement!
Joachim Llambi booed
After Motsi’s words of praise, Llambi promptly handed her his ten-point trowel, alluding to what she would pull out next. When Daniel Hartwich then remarked that Llambi should rather keep them himself, that he might still need them, the clear “no” shot out of the juror. “Maybe during the evening,” he added at least somewhat forgivingly, but also let it be known that the “Dancing Star 2022” can’t expect ten points from him. In his verdict, he accordingly did not skimp on constructive criticism and received boos again. As is well known, Llambi does not mind, he stayed tough and only awarded eight points.

After all: Llambi’s ten-point card was used faster than you would have believed at the time. He was enthusiastic about Janin Ullman and Zsolt Sándor Cseke, who took second place in 2022. “That was great cinema for a rumba”he praised – that made a total of 30 points.
Jorge rebukes Llambi
That broke the ten-point ban. For Rúrik Gíslason and Malika Dzumaev, Llambi even got eleven points that didn’t conform to the rules and the comment about his jacket that only the best would color coordinate with him. Jorge was downright appalled by this comment and initially rebuked his colleague: “Sorry, use your glasses. A completely different tone!”
After the second round of dancing, René Casselly was also able to really clean up. The audience even asked for an encore, even Motsi joined in. Even Llambi couldn’t help but give the full number of points. “That’s worth twelve,” he enthused.
However, it wasn’t enough for the title “Christmas Dancing Star”. Rúrik Gíslason secured this with professional dancer Renata Lusin.
It is one of the most important issues, but also one of the most controversial issues of our time. transgender Actor Florian David Fitz has now made a comedy out of it with “Oskar’s Dress”. The film is about a nine-year-old who almost always wears a yellow dress. When the father finds out about this, it causes chaos. Fitz himself plays him and he wrote the screenplay.
