pop star Andy Borg (“Adios Amor”) and his wife Birgit want to spend the turn of the year at home. “With us, New Year’s Eve is very cozy, almost like Christmas,” said the 62-year-old of the German Press Agency. “We were on stage for so many years. We were on the road with the “Silvesterstadl”. Since it no longer exists, his wife has not accepted an appearance for the turn of the year, added the native of Vienna.

The Borgs have a fixed New Year’s Eve menu: “We’ve already decided on raclette this year, otherwise we were very happy to do it for Christmas.” A wine to go with it? “No,” the moderator replied. “I just don’t have the taste buds. Nobody in my family can understand that, but that’s the way it is.”

Regarding intentions for the new year, Borg said: “We haven’t had any resolutions for at least ten years.” In the past, he often made resolutions, but it “never worked” because things often turned out differently than planned. The 50th edition of “Schlager-Spass mit Andy Borg” will be broadcast on SWR television on Sunday.
