The rumor mill is boiling
Did Shirin David cancel DSDS?

Five years ago, Shirin David was on the jury for “Deutschland sucht den Superstar”. Now it was rumored that she was allowed to return to the last anniversary season of the RTL show. But nothing is said. That, of course, is just speculation.
Shirin David has already made fame and money as a YouTuber. But since the 27-year-old, whose real name is Barbara Schirin Davidavičius, has also joined the rappers, the ruble should really roll with her.
Perhaps that’s why she would have turned down a jury post on the 20th and final season of “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (DSDS), despite the alleged bid of millions. At least that’s what the newspaper “Bild” reports, which had previously advertised David for several weeks as a good candidate for a seat next to chief judge Dieter Bohlen.
As the newspaper claims to have learned, the influencer gave Bohlen and the broadcaster a basket after a long wrangle. According to the newspaper, this was also confirmed by David’s management.
Is singer Leony coming?
But maybe it’s not because of the money that David, who was on the DSDS jury in 2017, isn’t interested in a comeback. “I wouldn’t do DSDS again,” she finally said, looking back on the show in the past, adding, “I don’t find television interesting anymore because the content is lacking.” At the end of 2021, she complained in the song “Bramfeld Stories” about her participation in the RTL format.
But perhaps at least the other speculation circulating on Wednesday is true. According to this singer Leony, there is already a jury member for the upcoming DSDS season, which will start on RTL and RTL+ at the beginning of 2023. The 25-year-old, who was involved in a remake of the modern speaking hit “Brother Louie” two years ago, is said to have been one of the pop titans’ absolute favorites. However, their participation is not yet official.
Pietro Lombardi’s return, on the other hand, is signed and sealed. RTL has confirmed that the 2011 DSDS winner, who was also a jury member in the show in 2019 and 2020, will return to the cradle of his success. And we will also know in time who will be joining him and Bohlen at the end of the show.
