“I am looking for the complete package”
Pietro Lombardi gets his own casting
Pietro Lombardi owes his career to “Germany is looking for the superstar”. He also remains loyal to the show later, such as serving as a juror in the 16th and 17th seasons. Now, however, it could easily compete with its usual format, as it is now looking for new talent in its own show.
Yes, there are stars who actually emerge from talent shows. Pietro Lombardi is undoubtedly one of them. After his victory in the eighth season of “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (DSDS) in 2011, he successfully established himself in the music world.
So successful that he even returned to DSDS in 2019 and 2020, but this time as a juror. Now he wants to “give something back” and promote a singing talent, he announced on his Instagram page. That’s why the 29-year-old will soon lead his own cast on RTL+.
“My first show of my own and I’m looking for the best singer with THE overall package!” Lombardi writes about a trailer for the format. The Karlsruher is linked to a casting call from the agency Filmpool. “Do you love music and have you always wanted to be on the big stage?” he said. “Are you a singing or rapping talent, are you over 18 and do you dare to perform in front of a large audience?”
Lombardi founds his own label
There’s more to the casting call. Lombardi also announces that he will found his first label with the music company Universal. The winner of his talent show gets a recording contract with the company.
RTL has announced that Lombardi is currently being accompanied behind the scenes of the new format and in the preparations for the show. The creation of the label and the search for talent are of course also monitored. It is not yet known when the show will be available on RTL+. It is also not known if it will also be shown in the regular program of RTL.
If you want to participate in the Lombardi fair, you absolutely have to hurry. The deadline for registration is May 8. Interested parties should upload a video with a singing or rapping performance. In their clip, they should also say why they belong to the big scene. Filming will begin on May 16 and will continue until June 17.
