‘Big Performance’ Premieres on RTL

‘Big Performance—Wer ist der Star im Star?’ will premiere this coming Saturday on RTL. Brainpool has produced four episodes of the new entertainment show at Studio Cologne-Mülheim, where MMC Studios’ sister-company Crosscast was in charge of the technical TV production of the shows.

‘The Star in the Star’ (Intl. title) sees the world’s biggest pop stars come together to sing their biggest hits, in the form of a German celebrity transformed into the idol.

Using elaborate special-effects masks and professional coaching to mimic the pop stars’ movements and singing voice, the star begins the performance lip-syncing and then transitions to a live vocal.

A comedy panel and the studio audience must guess which celebrity is behind the impersonation.

The technical production of the show was controlled by a new production gallery suite that was engineered, built, and installed by Crosscast at Studio Cologne-Mülheim.

After ‘Big Performance’, the production gallery operated by Crosscast is now used for the production of several more upcoming Brainpool shows.

Watch the premiere of ‘Big Performance’ on September 12 at 8:15 p.m. on RTL and TVNOW.
