• DSDS 2013 – The twins Bill & Tom from Tokio Hotel are the new jury
The most important TV news of the year: Bill and Tom Kaulitz from Tokio Hotel and Mateo de Culcha Candela are the new Jury from "Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar" (Germany’s next superstar) alongside Dieter Bohlen.
[…] But what influenced Bill and Tom to accept this job as the jury of DSDS ?
Bill:” Since a few years, we tried to stay away from the media scene to come back in studio but also to have a break. This year the proposition we got from DSDS came just in time – We can work as jurors and continue to work at the studios.”
Tom: “Until now we always refused this kind of offers.
Bill: “But we also always said that if we had to be jurors somewhere, it would be in the biggest show with a special format.”
Tom: “The last person who convinced us to say yes was Steven Tyler, who was a juror himself in the last season of American Idol! We think it’s a good thing that the castings are based on a jury with real artists, that’s what add some seriousness and a musical level for the show.”
Today the jury will have his first working day with the casting in Berlin. RTL will broadcast the 10th season of the most popular musical casting of Germany in the beginning of the year.
