On Friday, the “Let’s Dance” tour stopped at the ÖVB Arena in Bremen. The stars of the TV show were celebrated in the almost packed hall. It was a special night especially for professional dancer Zsolt Sándor Cseke. After all, it was a home game for him that was crowned with a victory.
Together with celebrity candidate Julia Beautx, he managed to win the tour for the fourth time. Julia even surpassed the current “Dancing Star” Anna Ermakova. However, the jury wanted things to be a little different, as they openly admitted.

Anna Ermakova was showered with praise
On the “Let’s Dance” 2023 tour, moderated by Daniel Hartwich, there are several professional dancers such as Kathrin Menzinger and Vadim Gabuzov, as well as five famous candidates: current “Let’s Dance” winner Anna Ermakova, as well as finalists Julia Beaux and Philipp Boy. Abdelkarim, eliminated in the second show in 2023, also dances along. 2018 winner Ingolf Lück is the fifth celebrity to be on tour.
In the live shows, the candidates perform two dances each together with their professional dancers, with whom they also appeared on the dance floor in the TV show – of course, the best of the season. Just like on television, they receive an evaluation from the jury of Joachim Llambi, Motsi Mabuse and Jorge González.
Not surprisingly, it is Anna Ermakova who scores ten points almost consistently. However, only the public decides who wins the night. Fans can vote for their favorite pair on the spot using a QR code. In Bremen, however, the jury surprisingly decided that Anna did not deserve the title that night.
Motsi Mabuse and Jorge González criticize Abdelkarim
He had already proven on the TV show that Abdelkarim is not a talented dancer. However, he always does his best on tour – even if he hasn’t had much success so far. However, something was different on Friday night, as Llambi discovered.
After the first dance with Kathrin Menzinger, even the usually kind Jorge couldn’t resist making a joke. “I’m thrilled with the audience,” he said dryly. Motsi Mabuse was also critical. “I have positive things to say,” she began, and then stated, “You’ve been…active.” After all, she praised the permanent glow on his face and noticed that it had improved compared to the previous day.
His constant critic, Llambi, was surprisingly more benevolent. He praised the comedian for looking much better than the day before and said he might even attack Anna. He conceded an impressive six points for this, while Jorge conceded at least five and Motsi conceded just four points.
Jury announces surprising favorite
In any case, Motsi was quite critical that night. Llambi didn’t miss that either. When his colleague also rated Philipp Boy and Patricija Ionel’s Paso Doble with “only” nine points, he blurted out: “What happened to you? What’s wrong with you? Were you always so nice?!” he wondered. irritated.
Although at the end of the evening Anna Ermakova was, as expected, on top with 60 points, the jury and moderator Daniel Hartwich were surprisingly in agreement. It wasn’t her, Julia or Philipp who deserved to win this time, but Abdelkarim. He would have made a significant improvement and even achieved his personal best score.

However, the public saw it differently. When it became clear that Abdelkarim would not win, Hartwich immediately suspected that the vote result was wrong. “This is a terrible set-up game,” he said angrily. He was convinced that the envelope with the voting results had arrived too quickly. His assumption didn’t come completely out of nowhere. There were only a few seconds between the supposedly final moments of voting and the delivery of the voting results.
Legitimate or not – for Zsolt it meant a victory at home. Perhaps Abdelkarim will have better luck at the Hamburg show on Saturday night.
The year is slowly coming to an end. This not only means shorter days, the first Christmas markets and “Last Christmas” on the radio, but also that the well-known television program is often confused.
