Popstars 2012 also known as Popstars goes Ibiza is the tenth season of Popstars (Germany), in which young and aspiring male and female singer compete for a place in a new band. Pre-castings for the show started in March 2012, where competitors were selected and called back to sing and perform in front of the jury. Casting were held in Berlin and the Workshop started shooting in June on Ibiza. Online casting also took place, and one contestant reached the workshop stage in this way.


During the casting stage, each jury member was able to give a contestant from zero to three points. To get into the re-call and later into the Workshop, the contestant had to earn eight points.


During the Workshop phase, the point system continued. The groups are judged as one and needed to earn eight points to proceed into the next round. The groups which don't earn eight points must perform in a Survival round, where they perform as a group or solo but get only judged as a solo contestant.
