NAfter an unfortunate live glitch, the finalists of the casting show “The Voice of Germany” have been determined: Tammo Förster (19, Duderstadt in Lower Saxony), Basti Schmidt (28, Berlin), Julian Pförtner (23, Heidelberg) and Anny Ogrezeanu (21, Wachtberg in NRW) prevailed in the semifinals late on Friday evening.
Twelve talents from the teams of Peter Maffay, Mark Forster, Rea Garvey and Stefanie Kloß from Silbermond competed in the three and a half hour live show from Berlin-Adlershof. The television audience chose their favorites for the final. When the results were announced in Team Garvey, there was a graphic glitch. First, the 17-year-old Sophie Frei was announced as the winner. Minutes later, a notary on stage clarified: the 19-year-old forester got the most votes.
In addition to the appearances of the semi-finalists, the pop singers Max Giesinger and Michael Schulte will present their first joint single “More To This Life” in the semi-finals. The two had made it to the finals of the first Voice season ten years ago.
This year’s final show will be broadcast live on Sat.1 next Friday at 8:15 p.m. The talents will be supported by guest stars Alphaville, Nico Santos, Calum Scott and Zoe Wees.
