Immediately post-finale, Klaws released three singles, most notably the coronation song "Take Me Tonight" which was written by Bohlen and debuted on top of the German singles chart, eventually becoming the second biggest selling single of 2003 - only losing to "We Have a Dream", the pre-released recording of all ten finalists. As part of the promotion planned for the show's first winner, the song had been prerecorded ready to air on radio stations the week after the finale. Appearances on numerous entertainment/news shows followed, as did videos for the singles that began airing on MTV Central and VIVA. Klaws has subsequently had three albums and several hit singles mostly from his more successful first album. While his debut, Take Your Chance (2003), and its follow-up, Here I Am (2004), saw nationwide success and garnered him several ECHO Award nominations, his independent 2006 release, Attention failed to link on previous sales figures.

Contestants[edit]

Nektarios Bamiatzis was born on July 10, 1975 and is of Greek descent. He placed 8th in the competition. Since the show, Bamiatzis has released two singles. His solo single, "Looks Like We Made It", was released in 2003. In 2005, Bamiatzis teamed up with three other fellow DSDS alumni to form "4 United". The group only released one single, titled "Don't Close Your Eyes".

Stephanie Brauckmeyer was born on May 11, 1980. Brauckmeyer joined the top 10 on December 14, 2002. She was in the third group of the 30 semi-finalists. However, she was the first member of the top 10 to be eliminated. After Idol, Stephanie only released one single, "Don't Close Your Eyes", as part of a group called "4 United", consisting of her and three other DSDS alumni.

Andrea Josten was born Andrea Lopez on September 9, 1985. Josten is from Chile and was adopted by her German stepfather. Andrea received 9th place in the show. After the show, it was revealed that she was pregnant. Her son Jeremy was born October 19, 2003 in Frankfurt. Since the show's end, Josten has largely disappeared from the public eye.

Daniel Küblböck born August 27, 1985 in Hutthurm, Bavaria, Germany, received third place in the show, after which he signed a contract with BMG. Until June 2004 he released four major hit singles and a #1 album. As a public persona, Küblböck is extremely polarising due to his carefully cultivated image as der schräge Daniel (Wacky Daniel), a boy-girl persona with a distinctly Bavarian dialect, who, according to reliable yellow-press reports, loves to wear girlish clothes, use cosmetics and make-up, and collect perfumes and incense. After a controversial participation in the German version of I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!, his popularity faltered. He was voted by the viewers of the German TV channel Pro7 as the most annoying personality of 2003, and the second most annoying person in 2004.

Daniel Lopes was born on November 12, 1976 in Brazil, and was adopted by his German stepfather. During the show he dated fellow contestant Juliette Schoppmann; they have since broken up. Daniel was eliminated on January 11, 2003, and got 7th place on the show. After his elimination, Lopes was signed to a record label. His album "For You" 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, "For You": "Shine On" and "I Love You More Than Yesterday". He has released two other singles including "Last Christmas/I Used To Cry" in late 2003 and "Change The World" in 2005.
