Berlin With Sarah Connor, Nico Santos and Johannes Oerding, three celebrities leave the musical show The Voice of Germany. In the fall, viewers will experience a vastly different program on Sat 1 and ProSieben.
In the upcoming season of the talent show “Voice of Germany”, ProSieben and Sat.1 have to replace three top coaches. Sarah Connor, Nico Santos and Johannes Oerding will not be around at the end of the year, the broadcast group announced Wednesday night. Only the long-awaited Mark Forster will remain on the show. Curator Lena Gercke had previously stated that she was leaving the format as well. She had guided through the programs with Thore Schölermann. New coaches want to announce decision makers at a later time. Season 12 will air in the fall. Filming will start this summer.
“We’re on my biggest outdoor tour so far this summer, and most of all I’m focused on writing and releasing new music,” songwriter Oerding explained on Instagram. He won the eleventh season at the end of 2021 with his candidate Sebastian Krenz.
The show has been around since 2011. It is based on the internationally successful talent show concept that originated in the Netherlands. Coaches change frequently. Past swivel chair celebrities include Nina, Rhea Garvey, Samo Haber and the duo The BossHoss.
