‘Das Supertalent’ (Germany’s Got Talent) Returns To RTL In Spring Of 2024

After a two-year break, the talent show produced by UFA Show & Factual will return to RTL in the spring of 2024. The jury for the 16th season will be comprised of Anna Ermakova, Ekaterina “Ekat” Leonova, Dieter Bohlen, and Bruce Darnell. Talents keen to take to the stage can apply now.

After a two-year break, “Das Supertalent” (Germany’s Got Talent) will return to RTL and to screens in spring 2024. Alongside Dieter Bohlen and Bruce Darnell, professional dancer Ekaterina “Ekat” Leonova (“Let’s Dance”) and the current RTL “Dancing Star 2023,” Anna Ermakova, will take their places on the judging panel of the popular talent show produced by our colleagues at UFA Show & Factual. “RTL celebrates its 40th anniversary next year, and of course ‘Das Supertalent’ can’t be missing from that party,” says Inga Leschek, Managing Director Programming at RTL and RTL+. “Our popular hit show will return to RTL’s program lineup for the anniversary. Accompanied by the established ‘Supertalent’ power duo Bruce and Dieter and the two ‘Let’s Dance’ audience favorites Ekaterina and Anna, who will bring a breath of fresh air to the judge’s podium. Together, we are looking forward to many new talents to inspire our audience.”

“I’m very excited to be sitting on a judging panel myself for the first time,” says Anna Ermakova. “Being part of ‘Das Supertalent’ is like a knighthood for me. Through my participation in ‘Let’s Dance,’ I know exactly how it feels to be a contestant on this kind of show. I learned to always believe in yourself and never give up. To now be able to accompany talents on their journey and spur them on to give their best performance is something I am truly passionate about.” Dieter Bohlen declares: “A great wish of mine has come true. ‘Das Supertalent’ is back. And my friend Bruce is on board. The two of us just belong together. And there are two new judges I’m super excited about: Ekat Leonova and Anna Ermakova. It’s going to be a really thrilling new season. I’m really keen to witness all the great talent.”

Bruce Darnell comments: “For me it feels like coming home! Back to the best judges’ seat! I’m proud and grateful to be rocking the jury alongside Dieter again. I look forward to our two new fellow judges and to some amazing talents.” Ekaterina Leonova adds, “It’s an exciting new challenge for me to be part of the ‘Supertalent’ jury! As a professional dancer on ‘Let’s Dance,’ I’ve learned over the years that it’s not always about perfection, but also about joy and passion. From my own experience, I know how important constructive criticism and valuable tips are for a successful performance, and now I get to experience how Mr. Llambi feels on the other side of the judging table. Together with my fellow judges, I’m excited to see the diversity of the performances and to accompany the candidates on their journey.”
