About his future job, the 36-year-old says he always wanted to be honest and fair. He also comments on his predecessor Dieter Bohlen.
Footballer Lukas Podolski comes to the jury of the RTL program super talent. On Tuesday, private radio announced that the 36-year-old had “signed for several years”. The former Bayern Munich player will participate next season. “I grew up with her,” Podolsky said of the show. “You watch it with the kids.” “You definitely need a little time to start working. But then that’s not a problem.”
Podolsky was impressed by the constant new performances of the nominees: “I always ask myself how much talent can people have? But there are always new surprises.” His motto as a juror: “In the end you have to be honest.” One should also be able to criticize “but in a fair way”.
“Dieter Bohlen comes from a completely different direction than me.”
Most of all, Podolsky looks forward to the show’s moments with the kids on stage. “I am a person who loves being with children. I am just looking forward to having children.”
The former national player found words of praise for his predecessor in the jury: “Dieter Bohlen comes from a completely different direction than me. You can’t compare them either. And I don’t want to replace him in any way,” Podolski said. Now it’s going in a different direction.
RTL announced in March of this year that it will no longer be just a cast show Germany is looking for the star (“DSDS”), but also super talent to set up again. Permanent juror Dieter Bohlen flew out of both shows. RTL Managing Director Henning Tewes said they wanted to become more family-friendly about the new strategy and promised “campfire moments for young and old, old and young.” Another name to replace super talent– The jury wants to announce the station next week.
