Cologne (AP) – “Let’s Dance”-Off for Riccardo Basile and Lilly zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg: The sports presenter (30) and the businessman (49) received very few votes from the viewers on Friday night and must leave the RTL program with that
After all the candidates advanced one round last week due to corona-related glitches, two dance couples had to say goodbye to the show that night.
According to jury Joachim Llambi, presenter Basile’s salsa presentation lacked fire and bite. “It’s a danced German sauce,” was Llambi’s verdict. Sayn-Wittgenstein-Berleburg, on the other hand, also received positive feedback on his Quickstep.
The princess had actually been chosen as the show’s first featured candidate three weeks ago. Since actor Hardy Krüger Jr. (53) finally left the season after several positive corona tests, he was allowed to return to the show.
Last week she had to sit herself down due to a positive test. Politician Caroline Bosbach (32) and actor Timur Ülker (32) were also unable to participate due to corona. The three returned to the start on Friday night.
According to the jury Jorge González, the involuntary breakup could have been good for the actor Ülker and his dance partner Malika Dzumaev (31). “You should get Corona every week,” joked the judge. González explained that he had never seen the two of them so sexy. “That was very hot.”
Actress Sarah Mangione also received a lot of praise on Friday night. For her soulful contemporary, 31-year-old professional dancer Vadim Garbuzov (33) was the only couple that night to score a total of 30 points. Track and field athlete Mathias Mester (35) and dance partner Renata Lusin (34) were also convincing and scored a total of 29 points.
In the eyes of the Motsi Mabuse jury, the circus artist René Casselly (25) and the professional dancer Regina Luca (33) were “absolutely sensational”. Luca replaced her colleague Kathrin Menziger on short notice because she was unable to get involved due to a positive corona test. After just one day of training together, Casselly and Luca even got up the courage to dance lifting figures.
At the annual “boys vs. girls special,” men and women took turns dancing the same medley. The men’s team won by eight points. The jury gave the women one point less. 4.00 million viewers watched the show on Friday night, corresponding to a 17.3 percent market share.
