‘Pretty in Plush – The Weirdest Singing Competition in Germany’ will premiere on November 27 at 8:15 p.m. on FTA network SAT.1 and streaming platform Joyn.
In addition, MMC Studios is providing the props and decorations for the on stage performances of the different artists.
Hosted by Michelle Hunziker, the new entertainment format (International title: I Got You Babe) sees unique and quirky puppet characters singing duets with actor Hardy Krüger Jr., presenter Mareile Höppner, actress and presenter Janine Kunze, comedian Ingolf Lück, dancer Massimo Sinató, and reality star Jessica Paszka.
Six plush characters with powerful voices take on the celebs and face the challenge of captivating the audience with fantastic performances week after week.
The duets are judged by singer Sarah Lombardi, actor Hans Sigl, and a guest panelist.
At the end of each episode, the viewers decide which duet has to leave the competition and thus choose the best duet as the winner of ‘Pretty in Plüsch’ (German title) in the finale.
Four episodes of the show are produced live in Cologne.
