For 18 years, Dieter Bohlen was a senior judge on “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”. Then came Florian Silbereisen. But Bohlen does not want to have watched that for a second.

Before returning to the RTL show “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”, Dieter Bohlen claims not to have watched the season without himself – but with Florian Silbereisen as the senior juror. “I didn’t look for a second,” said the 68-year-old in the RTL star magazine “Exclusiv – Weekend” that was broadcast on Sunday evening. Did it hurt him too much? Interviewer Frauke Ludowig asked the pop producer in Mallorca. “Yes. That just hurts. I’m being honest about that. And a show like that that you’ve been doing for 18 years, I’d rather not watch it.” RTL announced last week that the upcoming 20th season of DSDS will be the last. To say goodbye, Bohlen returns to the jury.
