The ARD show “Schlagerboom”, hosted by Florian Silbereisen, is heavily criticized by fans online – and is even given a less than praiseworthy nickname.
The stage shook: Florian Silbereisen (42) was once again in demand as a presenter on Saturday evening – the ARD show “Schlagerboom” was coming up. In Dortmund’s Westfalenhalle, the host celebrated with, among others, Schlager stars such as Beatrice Egli (35), Roland Kaiser (71) and Andrea Berg (57) – who had not appeared in one of Florian Silbereisen’s ARD programs for two years.
“Schlagerboom”: Silbereisen show receives fan criticism
While the spectators on site had a lot of fun, the fans online were somewhat divided. In particular, the music selection of some of Florian Silbereisen’s guests was heavily criticized – but what made the fans so upset?
The whole thing started with the band Voxxclub’s performance: They had obviously used the Queen hit “We Will Rock You” for the instrumental for their new song “Do you need a man?”
Shortly afterwards, Joelina Drews (28) and Lucas Cordalis sang the duet “When the rain falls on us” – a cover of the US pop song “When the Rain begins to Fall” by Jermaine Jackson (68) and Pia Zadora (59).
As the show continued, Ross Antony (49) presented a cover of the Jürgen Marcus song “A new love is like a new life”, Anna-Maria Zimmermann (34) covered an old Nicole song and Marina Marx ( 33) the Bon Jovi hit “It’s My Life”.
This apparently seemed a little uninspired to many fans. They expressed their displeasure via Twitter:
- “Guys… there are only cover songs left!”
- “Today is simply a big cover evening…”
- “The German hit song doesn’t come to mind anymore… just covers.”
- “The next cover has a bum-bum beat.”
- “Only cover songs today. What’s that supposed to mean?”
- “Is that actually satisfying for artists? Only sing cover songs and only playback?”
One fan even gave the “Schlagerboom” the less than laudable nickname “Cover Show 2023”.
Perhaps, based on this feedback, the guests should rely less heavily on cover versions of well-known titles in the coming editions of Florian Silbereisen’s hit shows.
