In the upcoming season of “Voice of Germany” viewers will have to do without many familiar faces. In addition to mediator Lena Gercke, three coaches say goodbye. She says they are “taking a break this year”.
Johannes Ording and Nico Santos, as Sarah Connor, will not appear in the twelfth season of “The Voice of Germany”. Officials announced this on the show’s Instagram page.

In the summer, he’s doing his biggest outdoor tour yet and Oerding is also working on new music. “TVOG” was a “fantastic journey” for the singer which is why he went with “with a laughing and crying eye”. Obviously, Oerding could imagine a later comeback. “There is no goodbye forever,” he continues.
“With a heavy heart I decided to…”
The 40-year-old coached his candidate Sebastian Krenz to victory last December. “My first season” The Voice of Germany “and the little dream of being at the top with my talent finally came true for me,” the singer said in a statement. In addition, Connor, Santos, and Forster were considered coaches in Season 11.
It was previously announced that Connor would not return as a coach on the upcoming twelfth season of the ProSiebenSat.1 music show. “That’s right, Sarah Connor is taking a break for the upcoming #TVOG season,” a spokeswoman for “The Voice of Germany” confirmed on demand. It is not yet clear who will be in the new episodes instead of Connor, Ording and Santos. “We will announce in due course which coaches will sit on the red chairs in Season 12,” the spokeswoman said.
In addition, Lena Gercke announced that she wants to take a break. “It is with a sad heart that I have decided to suspend moderation this year,” the 34-year-old announced on Instagram at the end of March.
