Great performance by Michelle Hunziker: The Swiss showed her talent as a singer with Giovanni Zarrella. It almost gave her too much gas — but it also highlighted what Thomas Gottschalk will miss next week.
no time? Blue News sums it up for you
- Michelle Hunziker appeared on the “Giovanni Zarella Show” on ZDF.
- The presenter sang a variety of Italian songs with the host.
- She made such an effort that she jokingly asked for oxygen.
- Giovanni Zarrella was noticeably proud to have the Swiss in his show.
- He couldn’t resist hitting on Thomas Gottschalk.
What an introduction: Michelle Hunziker walks down the stairs of the “Giovanni Zarrella Show” stage in a fiery red bodycon dress. The ZDF presenter noticeably takes his breath away.
“She is a big star in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy,” Zarrella says excitedly. She lives in Bella Italia, she’s quick-witted, she’s funny, she’s beautiful – and she won’t be with Tommy next week, but with me today: there’s Michelle Hunziker!”
A direct response to Gottschalk’s criticism of Hunziker?
The crowd went wild, and the swipe worked. And in two ways. On the one hand, because the beautiful Swiss woman will be missed by many viewers in the final showing of the series “Wetten, dass…?” next week.
And on the other hand, because Thomas Gottschalk implied in an interview with his former dialogue assistant that she had lost her quick wit.
He liked to pass balls to her, which Hunziker would automatically pick up and use. I lost that looseness,” Gottschalk says.
Through his eulogy (“quick-witted,” “funny,” “beautiful”), Giovanni Zarrella seems to have responded directly to these accusations.
Additionally, the Italian-German’s pride in having the beautiful Swiss woman on the show is literally written on his face the entire time.
Hunziker to Zarrella: “You’re killing me!”
However, Michelle Hunziker seems to like the running back coach.
She retaliates with an exuberant eulogy for Zarrella. They talk together about his visit to Milan for Hunziker’s TV show on Italian television.
Then we sing – and how. With an epic mix of Italian evergreens such as ‘Semper, sempre’ (Al Bano and Romina Power), ‘Volare’ (Gipsy Kings) as well as ‘Sara perche ti amo’ and ‘Mamma Maria’ (Ricchi e Poveri), Michele Hunziker arrives To its utmost limits.
She is audibly out of breath (“Do you have some oxygen?”) “You’re crazy—you’re killing me!” she tells presenter Zarrella, laughing and still gasping for air.
Zarella takes it easy and asserts, “It’s great to have you here tonight!”
At the end of the show, Michelle Hunziker returns to the stage. This time she sings the medley “ZDF Hitparaden” – confirming her worth as a prominent presenter on German TV shows.
Will Thomas Gottschalk reconsider his judgment after this performance?
