“I can humbly announce that I have Helene Fischer in ‘Wetten, dass ..?’ will perform together with Shirin David,” he explained to his audience. That’s something like the Stones with Lady Gaga, which he unfortunately doesn’t have, Gottschalk joked in the latest episode, which is available exclusively on RTL+.
Rumors have been accumulating in the music world for a long time about a possible collaboration between these two women, who couldn’t be more different: Shirin David (28), who is considered the most successful German rapper ever, thought about a duet in her new podcast “DirTea Talk”. Pop queen Helene Fischer (39). She hopes to work with the “Atemlos” interpreter. Will the rap icon and the hit queen find common ground?

Another big name from the music industry is being discussed: rapper Apache 207 (26), together with Udo Lindenberg (77), achieved huge chart success with the song “Komet”. According to Gottschalk, the ZDF production is trying to get a confirmation, even though the musician “provably does not appear on television for ‘Wetten, that ..?’ “But maybe an exception will be made” – at least that’s what “Supernose” hopes. Gottschalk revealed that Cher (77) would definitely be there: “Cher is coming at the moment.”
