Daniel Lopes (born 12 November 1976) was a contestant on the first season of Deutschland sucht den Superstar. Lopes was born in Brazil and adopted by his German stepfather. During the show, he dated fellow contestant Juliette Schoppmann. They have since broken up.
Lopes was eliminated on 11 January 2003, and ended 7th on the show. After his elimination, he was signed to a label. His album For You (on CD and DVD, produced by Frank Farian) was released in February 2003, while the competition was still going on. Because of this, he was apparently dropped from the tour. Lopes released 2 singles off of For You: "Shine On" and "I Love You More Than Yesterday". "Shine On" reached #14 in the German charts in March 2003. He has released two other singles including "Last Christmas/I Used To Cry" (which came out in late 2003) and "Change The World" (released in 2005).
