Leandah - Tage wie Juwelen
1 von 10


On August 17th, 2015 the mother of all casting shows "POPSTARS" returned to RTL II. Soul-pop singer Stefanie Heinzmann, urban music star Miss Platnum and choreographer/dancer Bella Garcia sought new POPSTARS as the show's new judges. From their arrival at the POPSTARS academy and several weeks of intensive training to the big finale, the candidates gave their all to achieve their dream. Top-notch guest stars including Sarah Connor, Carly Rae Jepsen and Glasperlenspiel also provided the young talent their support alongside the judges. In addition to this, the YouTube celebrities Bibi (BibisBeautyPalace) and Maren Merkel (alias Mary M.) reported on what's going on in the academy throughout the season in exclusive clips on all digital POPSTARS channels.

In this new version of the classic casting show, Stefanie Heinzmann, Miss Platnum and Bella Garcia sought truly extraordinary talent. Following an intensive selection procedure, 27 young ladies competed for the limited number of places in the POPSTARS academy. There, the candidates had the opportunity to demonstrate and develop their skills. They lived together in a band house during this time and the audience therefore saw how the talents got along personally.

From vocal coaching as well as dance and performance training to independent trial sessions in different band combinations, the candidates had a full schedule and benefited from the experience of the judges and professional coaches during this hard training period.

The judges assessed the development of the talents in weekly decision shows. Who can stay? Who has to leave the academy? In the grand finale, the judges finally decided on the four final members of the POPSTARS band. The formation LEANDAH received a recording contract with Universal Music and their debut-single was called "Tränen wie Juwelen [Tears like Jewels]".
