Marie Wegener , winner of season 15

The fifteenth season of the German singing casting show Deutschland sucht den Superstar was broadcast from January 3 to May 5, 2018 on the RTL television program. At the side of Dieter Bohlen acted the new jurors Carolin Niemczyk (singer of the band Glasperlenspiel ), Mousse T. and Ella Endlich . As in the previous year, the motto was “No Limits”; This allowed musicians to take part in the casting without stylistic restrictions, but the age limit of 30 years was reintroduced. The winning bonus has been reduced from 500,000 euros to 100,000 euros.


The casting effort was the largest of the previous 15 seasons: from the end of August 2017, four casting trucks were on the move all over Germany looking for candidates and stopped in almost 60 cities.

After eleven casting episodes, 120 candidates went into Germany recall. They initially appeared in groups of 10, those who progressed from them then in pairs to four. 20 of them - plus the four winners of the Golden Jury CDs - made it into the international recall. Former candidates Juliette Schoppmann and Philippe Bühler accompanied the recalls as vocal coaches . As a major innovation, eight duels took place at the end of the international recall. From the last 16 candidates, the eight winners should fight for the final in just three motto shows.

South Africa recall

Two episodes were filmed in Pilanesberg National Park , the third episode in Sun City . Toranj Jafari, who was eliminated in the Germany recall, replaced the sick, 18-year-old Jessica Martins Reis from Osnabrück . Instead of the anticipated eight, ten candidates were sent to the theme shows.
