Why the choice fell on Bohlen's former protégé is obvious and is also addressed in the video: 'Pietro stood behind me the whole time and said: 'DSDS' without Dieter, that doesn't work at all.'

In fact, Lombardi spoke out critically after it became known in 2021 that Bohlen and RTL would first go their separate ways. 'No one can replace you,' he wrote at the time Instagram and posted a picture from the 'DSDS' times together with the ex-modern-talking singer.

According to 'Bild' information, Lombardi is said to have agreed directly for the jury post when the request came. However, it is still unclear who will sit third behind the desk. Bohlen's preferred candidate is said to be Shirin David, but she apparently hesitates, as the newspaper claims to have learned.

For Bohlen, however, it is probably first of all that Pietro Lombardi is celebrating his comeback: 'I'm looking forward to the new season. The 20th season simply has to be a success and we will be a lot, a lot fun have', he rejoices finally on Instagram.
