Sat.1 show “All Together Now”: Melissa Khalaj even shed tears
Written by insideindyhomes

Here is playing the music!

Sat.1 started its new show “All Together Now” on Friday evening. Twelve candidates sang in front of a 100-strong jury for the trophy and 10,000 euros. What almost came across as a karaoke competition at times really picked up speed towards the end. A young talent shone with such a touching voice that moderator Melissa Khalaj (33) broke all dams.

The rules are simple: Each participant has a total of 100 seconds to convince their listeners. If a juror is enthusiastic, it means buzzing, getting up from his place on the wall and singing along. One point is awarded for each vote won.

There were many familiar faces among the experts. So rapper MC Fitti (46), moderator Nilz Bokelberg (45) and former casting show candidates like “Popstars” winner Sascha Salvati (37). There were also vocal coaches, travesty artists, musical actors and opera singers.

The names of some up-and-coming singers also seemed familiar. Naturopath Bobby Anne Baker (52) was briefly in a relationship with red light legend Bert Wollersheim (71). On “All Together Now” she tried her luck with the hit song “Handsome Stranger Man” by Connie Francis. Her goal: “I hope that there will be more than 50 votes.” In the end there were only 41. A juror said: “I had the impression that you put on the handbrake a bit.”

Paramedic Ceci Ribbeck (20), granddaughter of football coach legend Erich Ribbeck (84), had “American Boy” by Estelle feat. Kanye West was more successful and still got 75 votes. Suzie Kerstgens (51), front woman of the pop band Klee, even predicted a great future for the young woman. “I think you were born for this. After your performance here, all doors are open to you.”

But the high-flyers were still in the starting blocks. The appearance of customer service consultant Esther Nkongo (26) from Mönchengladbach was an absolute goosebump moment. Her version of the Coldplay song “Fix You” not only touched many in the jury. Presenter Melissa Khalaj had a veritable collapse in tears, in which her voice almost failed.

She sobbed, “I can’t even pass because I’m crying. Oh god, I’m really crying! My mask is killing me!” It took a while for the hostess to announce Esther’s points. There were a whopping 97. The newcomer made it to the final, where she competed against retail salesman Ben Dettinger (26) and marketing manager Maximilian Schmitz (34), who received 97 and 95 votes respectively.

Each of the three performed another song. In the end, Ben won with “Proud Mary” by Ike & Tina Turner. Esther was second. With such good voices, one could overlook some rather mediocre contributions that also found their place in the show. In the coming week, the next twelve candidates will sing for the jackpot.
