The TV sensation of the year: Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel and Mateo Culcha Candela sit next to Dieter Bohlen in the new judges of "Deutschald sucht den Superstar".
The twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel, the most successful band in Germany and Mateo, founder and frontman of the band Culcha Candela will be, "Germany seeks the superstar" in the next season of jubilee Poptitan Dieter Bohlen sit on the jury. "Competent, controversial, colorful and with great musical spectrum: the new jury promises great entertainment, and now it's one of many reasons to turn American Idol delivering on the promise of many innovations." Said RTL entertainment chief Tom Sänger
What's done in the last two years, no one has done with RTL DSDS now. Bill and Tom Kaulitz return after almost two years of break back in the public media and in Germany. For American Idol the twins interrupt their creative break and work on the fourth studio album from Tokio Hotel, currently running at full speed. With the Kaulitz twins obliged DSDS real superstars, because Bill and Tom look at the age of just 23 years back on an international career that is unparalleled: 59 platinum and 89 gold records, and more than 90 music and media awards were Tokio Hotel worldwide since their breakthrough. International awards such as the MTV March Madness (USA), U.S. VH1 O Music Awards (USA), MTV Video Music Awards Japan, MTV Video Music Award USA, NRJ Music Awards (France), MTV Europe Music Awards, a European Border Breakers Award and the World Music Award (UK), among several national honors such as Echo, Bambi, The Golden Camera, the Eins Live Krone, the Golden Tuning Fork and countless comets - to name just a few. Well over 300 shows played Tokio Hotel around the globe before they are after their last European tour (Welcome to Humanoid City), the same tour of South America and the worldwide promotional tour, which ended in Japan, withdrew.
What the successful team led now to take the job as judges of American Idol? "We have in recent years tried completely out draw from the public to go to the studio and we especially to take a break. This year, it fit just at the request of American Idol, and we can do it next to the current and ongoing work in the studio realize well, "said Bill. Tom: "So far we have canceled all offers of this kind." Bill: "But we have always said that if we are jurors somewhere, then in the original and the biggest show."
Tom: "The person to give us the last push to say yes was Steven Tyler, who was a juror on the last season of American Idol! We think it’s good that casting shows rely on real artists as jurors to add another type of sincerity and musical standard to the show."
Punkt 6 (RTL) - 24.09.2012 After we were able to confirm to you already on Saturday that the twins as jury members in the tenth season of DSDS, follows today now the official confirmation of the part-published and RTL.
Bill says loudly RTL to the cooperation: "We have in recent years tried completely out draw from the public to go to the studio and we especially times to take a break this year, it fits easily in the request of American Idol. and we can do it next to the current and ongoing work in the studio realize well. " RTL also today radiates from exclusive interviews and American Idol material. Switching is worth it!
The interview has been filmed in Berlin, probably the hotel is Ritz Cartlon, in Postdamer Platz
Tokio Hotel in the DSDS jury. The sensation at Deutschland sucht den Superstar. How Tom and Bill are looking forward to the job next to Dieter Bohlen. Bill: "Tom and I will pay attention to…" Tom: "the women." Bill: "the women! " The exclusive interview with the Tokio Hotel twins after the commercials.
Kena Amoa (Exclusiv moderator): "good morning. Bill and Tom Kaulitz are new in the DSDS jury. We're electrified and are looking forward to some stories." Blonde woman: "Awesome! And that after two years where they haven't been in any media." XYZ and XYZ met the two guys next to Dieter Bohlen and interviewed them exclusively.
After two years they're back in front of a camera and back in Germany. Bill and Tom on the evening in Berlin. The new stars of the DSDS jury took a break from their current work on their album to be jurors. Bill: We haven't done anything for quite a long time, we've withdrawn ourselves completely. And of course we're looking forward now to see new talents and new artists. And maybe we'll also get inspired for our work in the studio.
They also want to inspire themselves from Dieter Bohlen. The twins are especially looking forward to finally meet and get to know him.
Bill: There's that old-timer who has been in that business for many years, he's very experienced and knows that format very well, he has made all the previews series and knows exactly what important and what counts. And I guess we can add a totally different aspect to the show and so I guess it's the perfect jury, at least I hope so.
Both already said before the show that they want to try to set own emphases.
Tom: I really hope that there'll also be some female artists because there are not enough german female artists, at least in my opinion. Bill: Well yes, I would of course also like to see some female artists. Tom and I will mainly pay attention to… Tom: the women. Bill: yes, the women.
So probably the female artists can be happy about that. Maybe the twins will also meet a fan in the castings, who probably already stood in the crowd of one of their concerts.
2005 the boys of Tokio Hotel began their successful career. They collected many prizes like the Comet and Echo, they received 89 gold awards for their sold CD's. Two years ago they've withdrawn themselves and went to the USA. But now they gladly came back for DSDS. Bill: We've always said that if we ever become jurors in a casting show then only at the original format show, because we simply reckon in it the most. Tom: It's also the only casting show where the artists get really successful, so I guess that was also quite important for us.
Today things get serious for them because the preparations begin. The DSDS series will be aired in January 2013, here on RTL.
Blonde woman: Wow, amazing styling. Brunette woman: 2013 the shows will air but the twins will also already be part of the castings, right? Kena Amoha: Yes, they'll already be at the castings as well. You'll have to think that those fans who screamed Durch den Monsun back in 2005 grew up now and will probably stand now in front of their idols singing in front of them. I guess there'll be many interesting things which we'll get to see. Blonde woman: Those two guys really made a world career in only a very short time. Now the question is: do they really fit in the format and also to Dieter Bohlen, or will there be some problems and issues? Kena Amoha: Well, they had 4 number 1 hits, they sold 6 million CD's worldwide, and I guess they can create a great balance towards Dieter Bohlen. Plus they can probably also add a better view and opinion of the younger generation and the view of the rock music to the show. Also, Bill was once part of a casting show so he's also experienced and knows how to handle that pressure to grow up in the spotlight. So he can probably develop a lot of sympathy for the candidates.
[… they're talking about Itchy from Culcha Candela…]
Bild.de also reported that the twins received 500.000€ for to be DSDS judges.
Meanwhile there's who wants to impress Bill dressing just like him!
Like Britney would say: I PASS!!!
Stay Tuned for more....
First pictures of the judges...
And on the Alien Chat on BTK App has been posted this:
commentator: lights on for the new dsds judges. tokio hotel brothers bill and tom kaulitz come back on our screens and back to germany were they have to point out something right away.
tom: it’s a little bit cold but the rest…
bill: yes, it’s a bit like a cold shock but we’re happy to be back in germany.
commentator: normally the twins live in los angeles were they work on their 4th studio album.
bill: we have a studio at home, we produce much on our own and write a lot. this is a good and welcomevariety.
commentator: what’s today for them a welcome variety was 7 years ago their daily schedule. [talks about their success.][…] also today the 23 years-old singer surpirsed with a new hairstyle. bill: it happens by me automatically and naturally. i probably change more often than other people, but for me that’s totally normal. commentator: for so much fashion sense, his brother tom makes little jokes about it sometimes. tom[joking]: my accessory for today are my sunglasses and i thought someone will also start to talk about my new style. commentator: during the interview tom made some jokes now and then. tom[joking]: i wanted this so badly, to support young musicians that i’ve said i’ll do it for free. bill got money stuffed up his ass and ehm.. that’s the truth.
Voice-over: Lights on for the new DSDS judges: Tokio Hotel brothers Bill and Tom Kaulitz have returned to our screens and are back in Germany where they have to comment on something right away. Tom: Well, I think it’s a bit… a bit nippy at the moment but apart from that… Bill: Yeah, it’s obviously a bit of a cold shock and erm… However, we’re happy to be back in Germany again. Voice-over: That’s because usually the twins are living in Los Angeles where they’re currently working on their forth studio album. Bill: We’ve got a home studio, erm, yes, we’re also producing an awful lot ourselves and are, like, writing. And that’s why all of this now is also just a good and very welcome change. Voice-over: What’s a change nowadays used to be an ongoing agenda for Bill and Tom seven years ago. They had their big breakthrough as Tokio Hotel with their first song “Durch den Monsun” in 2005. *DdM video part* Voice-over: Back then they were only just 16 years old. Their debut album “Schrei” sold 1.5 million copies. By the time they were 18 they were already millionaires and made fans’ hearts beat faster around the world. The guys polarise more than hardly any German band and not only because of their music but also with their performances and the ever-changing hairstyles and styles of singer Bill. And even today the 23-year old surprises with a new look for his head once again. Bill: With me it always happens automatically and naturally. Yes, well… I was… I probably change more than other people but for me it just, like, comes with the territory. Voice-over: However, for so much fashion-consciousness he also has to take a little joke from brother Tom every now and then. Tom: *to interviewer* Maybe about my sunglasses because I especially stuck them here today. That was, like, my accessory for today and I actually thought it would also give me a new styling but… *Bill laughing* Voice-over: In any case Tom keeps falling into joker mode time and again throughout our interview Tom: Bottom line is that for me the urge to also just nurture young people musically became so strong that I said I’d do it for free. Bill got sh*tloads of money and erm, that’s the truth. *Bill laughing* Voice-over: In return he also gets to sit next to the casting expert par excellence: Dieter Bohlen. He’s a DSDS judge for the 10th time. This time [he’s] part of an all male judging panel. However, there are not only three of them. There is another new judge at the desk. Culcha Candela singer Mateo. He formed the band Culcha Candela with two friends in 2001. In 2007 they released a truly catchy song with “Hamma!” In the meantime Culcha Candela have released six albums and rocked over 900 concerts. Mateo says it fits the bill for his job as a judge. Mateo: I think I can sense it when people absolutely want it. This kind of absolute will to entertain and for entertainment because that’s where I come from. I’m not an exceptionally gifted rapper, singer or dancer but my strongest talent is just that I work hard to achieve things and to entertain. Well, I’m honest. I’ve also got it tattooed here *showing tattoo on both hands*: “100% real”… [It’s me with] all [my] rough edges, [and] all [my] quirks. I’m just the way I am. Voice-over: However, even for Mateo it’s a highlight that he’s sitting with Dieter Bohlen at the DSDS desk now. Mateo: To be honest, I’ve got tons of respect for him as, erm… yes, as a producer and, like, a maker. Because after all you have to get this far first and then also stay there and I think it’s super. Meaning, something like this motivates me. Voice-over: Anticipation for Bohlen and curiosity about Tokio Hotel. Mateo: To be honest, well, I’m curios about what hairstyle Bill has got at the moment. Voice-over: After all one still remembers him with black hair like this. Mateo can get his own idea of his fellow judges at their first meeting today. Visually all four next to each other already make for an exciting judges mix.
Roberta Bieling (presenter): Well yes, we’ve said it before already: It’s the first work day for the new DSDS judging panel in Berlin today. Of course we’re there and now we go live to the boss himself, Dieter Bohlen. Dieter, now there are four of you. What do you expect from this big judging panel? Dieter Bohlen: Yes, I mean, I think with Tokio Hotel we also even have got some really big international stars with us for the first time. They, erm… Right now I can’t think of anyone else from Germany who also is just really successful internationally. Erm, then they’re also quite young, quite crazy, I think and in my eyes they’re also flamboyant, right? Well, based on that I’ll expect it to be very, very interesting for the audience and also [with having] Mateo from Culcha Candela. I think the combination is super good this time. We also don’t have a chick in our middle that only has to look good. Therefore, well, [having] four opinions, erm… certainly it’ll be working out well. Roberta Bieling (presenter): [In] 10 years of DSDS, you’re the only one who has been a part of all [previous] seasons. So what’s the secret of its long-lasting success from your point of view? Dieter: Oh well, I mean, we’re the only casting format that even generates Number Ones. Meaning, with all the other casting formats they [candidates] start driving taxi again after two weeks, right? To lead their existence. Erm, with us there’s 500.000 Thalers on the nail. Erm, I’d say those are all arguments speaking for DSDS. And, like mentioned before, [there is] this really immense success that the artists will have then. Though sometimes not for long but that’s not our fault. Erm, the artist has to be responsible for that themselves then, right? Well, every time I’m looking for something for the heart, for my eyes and something for the ears and every now and then I just get something for the [rubbish] bin. It can’t be helped, right? Roberta Bieling (presenter): Hmhm, Dieter. Many thanks and have fun!
Voice-over: White hair, more tattoos and clearly more exercise, yet still unmistakably Tokio Hotel. For the first time Bill and Tom Kaulitz are in Germany again after [having been] in LA for two years and as newly-appointed casting judges they’re mainly looking for an authentic up-and-coming star here. Tom: That a person walks in where you, like, say: „Awesome, somehow that’s already an artist!“ Meaning, it’s some kind of talent, it’s a person who just is the way they are and that’s good like that. And that you only have to polish them a bit so to speak. Bill: Also recognition value. Well, that’s totally important to me. Tom: At the end of the day we’re looking for everything that Bill hasn’t got. And what I have got. Bill: Yes. Voice-over: The 23-year old twins have got enough work experience. They’ve been standing on a stage professionally since 2005, [and] sold more than six million records. Work on album number four is in full swing by the way. Bill: Actually we’ve been in the studio all this time, erm, day and night. Tom and I also got a studio in our home. We’ve got a home studio, erm, yes, we’re also producing an awful lot ourselves and are, like, writing. And that’s why all of this now is also just a good and very welcome change. Voice-over: Maybe the alleged €500.000 pay also played a part in Bill and Tom joining the casting now and didn’t already do so for competitor „The Voice“ last year. Tom: Bottom line is that for me the urge to also just nurture young people musically became so strong that I said I’d do it for free. Bill got sh*tloads of money and erm, that’s the truth. *Bill laughing* Voice-over: Anyway, the two of them had to work today already. How strict Tokio Hotel’s judgements are will not be shown until next year though.
I really love music and fashion: I can't get enough of them!
About music I love the fact it will never betray me, it's my best friend ever!
About fashion I love the fact that I created my personal style inspring me by a lot of stuff, it's a mix of punk rock, gothic lolita and scene style! I love accessories like rings, bows, headbands, bracelets, necklaces, gloves, hat and crazy hair!
I'm graduated in fashion at the high school and now I'm studing music at the university
I hope to realize my dream in future and to be happy with my lovely angel!
