Chronology

The fifth season of Deutschland sucht den Superstar live shows began March 8, 2008. It is currently hosted by Marco Schreyl and jury panel, Dieter Bohlen, Anja Lukaseder, and Andreas "Bär" Läsker also star. This season, instead of making Top 20 Shows (where the boys and girls are split up in 2 groups of 10 and the viewing public voting for their favorite), the producers decided to make Top 15 Live-show "Now or never" and chose the top 10 live to premier in the mottoshows for the upcoming season.

Finals[edit]

Contestants[edit]

Rania Zeriri, born on January 6, 1986, in Enschede, is of Algerian-Dutch ethnicity. Zeriri was born with holes in her vocal cords. In spite of this vocal handicap she reached a high position.

Benjamin Herd was born in Worms and is the youngest male contestant of this season. He was early disputed, due to both his extravagant behavior and his enduring back-talking disrespect especially to the jury, which eventually led to his voluntary leaving. Jury member Dieter Bohlen then talked Herd back into the competition, where he was finally voted off by the audience on April 19, 2008, just reaching the 6th show.

Thomas Godoj was the winner of the fifth season. He was born in southern Poland, but raised in Recklinghausen.

Fady Maalouf was runner-up of the season. He was born in Zahlé, Lebanon. His song in the finals entitled "Blessed" went straight to number 2 in the German charts upon release, followed by Blessed that also charted at number 2 in the German albums chart.
