After the ninth live broadcast of “Let’s Dance” last Friday, Bastian Bielendorfer and Ekaterina Leonova were cast in the show. The comedian didn’t really manage to convince with his dancing at any point during the season, but he enhanced the format with his humor to compensate – and it was well received by viewers. He himself is open about his weaknesses on the pitch and said after his exit: “The fact that I almost made it to the finals of a dance show is just completely absurd.” Previously, he apologized to his adversaries week after week for making progress on the show.

So he will not become a “Dancing Star”, but his participation was definitely worth it: he developed a close friendship with his dance partner Ekaterina Leonova, the two want to keep in touch even after leaving “Let’s Dance”. As proof, they spoke on Instagram as a double pack on Sunday – even if they no longer train together.

Alluding to the motto of the last show, Ekat finally says in the story:

However, Ekaterina and Bastian don’t let this spoil their mood. “Don’t be sad dear, next week we’ll be watching TV or in the studio,” he tells subscribers, after which Ekat directly asks: “Let’s go to the studio.

Wasn’t this personal decision a good idea after all? Last year, RTL surprisingly decided to Dieter Bohlen as juror for “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” and “Das Supertalent”. RTL justified its decision by saying it wanted to give the programs a new image. The Cologne broadcaster plans to make them more family-friendly.
