In the first “DSDS” live show, Thomas Anders surprisingly sat on the jury. Florian Silbereisen assured “picture“That this change should not provoke a tip against Dieter Bohlen. As a reminder: The pop titan was replaced as chief juror after almost 20 years. At that time he said about the decision: “RTL just wants to go a new way, more family-friendly. A revolutionary like me, who always hits the shit a bit, has no place anymore.”

The fact that Anders, ex-modern talking star, was now involved in the show will probably have surprised Bohlen in particular. In 2003, after a comeback, the two finally ended their collaboration. The next “DSDS” edition will take place on Saturday. RTL has now announced which guest juror will be evaluating the performances of the candidates this time.

Sarah Engels supports the “DSDS” jury

As the broadcaster announced, this time Sarah Engels will be part of the second live show. The singer appropriately laid the foundation for her career with “DSDS”. Eleven years ago she was in the final with Pietro Lombardi and finished second. Someone recently asked her in a question and answer session on Instagram what percentage she would take part in as a juror in “DSDS”. Her answer followed promptly: “100 percent. Let’s see what the future brings.”

Sarah’s ex-partner Pietro has already worked as a juror alongside Dieter Bohlen. But the 29-year-old also has experience as a jury member. At the end of 2019, together with Bohlen and Bruce Darnell, they formed the jury for “Das Supertalent”. With regard to Sarah Engels’ new jury job, the broadcaster announced:

“While Pietro, as the first former candidate of the RTL casting show, has already been on the ‘DSDS’ jury desk for two seasons, Sarah is now following suit. In the second live show, the 29-year-old supports the jury in evaluating the superstar candidates as a guest juror in the footsteps of Thomas Anders, who actively supported the ‘DSDS’ jury in the first live show.”

So far, the artist has not personally commented on her new TV task. She is currently in the Maldives enjoying time with her children and husband Julian. At the end of last year she became a mother for the second time. In May 2021 she married her great love and took her name Engels again.
