As the wondrous monster “Mülli Müller”, he has provided entertaining performances for weeks: The “Germany is looking for the superstar” winner Alexander Klaws has won another talent show.
Cologne – banana peel on your head, cup in hand: the former “Germany is looking for the superstar” winner Alexander Klaws, disguised as a garbage monster, won the ProSieben show “The Masked Singer”.
The 38-year-old got the most votes from the audience in the final of the music guessing show last night. Then he revealed his true identity. For several weeks he had hidden under the costume of a blue monster that lives in a garbage can, played jokes on stage – and delivered extremely entertaining performances. “Now we’re tearing the hut down again!” Roared the fluffy cattle at his final song.
“I put this head on and something happened to me,” said Klaws about his transformation into Mülli Müller, as the wondrous creature was called. “Some lever clicked and I went completely nuts.” He’s already done a lot in his career. “But that’s the hottest shit.” In 2003, Klaws won the very first season of the casting show “Deutschland sucht den Superstar” (RTL).
In the final, the singer prevailed in the final vote against singer Sandy Mölling (40) from the pop band No Angels, who was exposed as a caterpillar on roller skates. In addition, at the end of the fifth season of the format, the Austrian pop singer Christina Stürmer (39) was exposed as a heroine and musician Carolin Niemczyk (31) by the band Glasperlenspiel as a pug.
In “The Masked Singer” celebrities appear as singers, but hide their true identity behind elaborate costumes. The stars are exposed as soon as they don’t get enough votes – or win at the very end. dpa
