The finale of “Germany’s Next Top Model” was the top TV event on Thursday evening. But not only winner Lou-Anne was a big topic of conversation afterwards. The live performance by the head of the jury, Heidi Klum, also caused a stir.
Because even before the audience got to see the young models, they had first Heidi and her husband Tom Kaulitz come first. The two of them sat at the piano and provided the opener for the big show. After the first notes of “Chai Tea with Heidi” and a kiss for her husband Tom, the juror appeared on stage in a glittery bodysuit and fringed pants to heat up the audience.
Heidi Klum sings the season song
After the performance, which was unusual for her, Heidi had to take a deep breath. “First a water. My husband wrote it, I’m sorry if it was wrong and your ears hurt.”she said after her performance.
Her intuition doesn’t seem to have entirely deceived her: Many made fun of Heidi’s singing skills online. “My God, now she’s singing too,” wrote one user. “Who lied to her?” Asked another, probably assuming that Heidi had not received any honest feedback on her singing in the run-up to the show.
Other viewers were also uncomfortable with the appearance of the “GNTM” judge. “I think every year that the ‘GNTM’ opener for the finale can’t get any more unpleasant and I’m taught better every year,” said a user. Another disagreed and recalled 2019, where candidate Theresia Fischer had married live in the season 14 finale.
Jokes about Heidi’s looks and omnipresence
Others made fun of Heidi and Tom’s looks. The performance visually reminded some of ABBA. Another joked that Florian Silbereisen and Helene Fischer had changed quite a bit.
The network also joked about the great presence that Heidi Klum has in the casting show. So one user took the trouble and quickly redesigned the show’s logo to “Heidi Klum by Heidi Klum”.
The grand finale of “GNTM” took place in Cologne on Thursday evening. Anita, Lou-Anne, Luca, Noëlla and Martina fought for the title “Germany’s next top model”, a campaign by Mac Cosmetics, the cover of the German “Harper’s Bazaar” and a prize money of 100,000 euros. Finally, with Martina, there was another best-ager model in the final. Season 17 was all about diversity this time. The age range was 18 to 68 years.
