Former homeless man moved to tears

The coaches of “The Voice of Germany” had no idea of ​​the tragic story when they heard the voice of Nadine Pimanov in the fourth episode of the talent show Pro-Sieben-Sat.1. But they heard a “crazy life experience” from it, which was rather atypical for a 25-year-old, as Silbermond singer Stefanie Kloß noted. All four coaches were rooting for the Cologne native with Romanian roots and hoped they could win her over for their team.

Before that, however, other talents tried their luck: Jenny Oberst-Harth (27), after Mama Anja Beck-Harth (55) in the previous episode, sang another member of the Rhineland-Palatinate butcher family in the next round. Her performance in the Ike & Tina Turner hit “Nutbush City Limits” had convinced all three male coaches, she chose Peter Maffay (72).

Andreas Urbaniak (57), whose son Tillmann (21) had shot himself into the hearts of “The Voice” fans last year, was less fortunate. During the performance of “The Power of Love” (Huey Lewis & the News), neither coach pressed the buzzer. “I’m sure we’ll be here again next year,” Tillmann promised.

Candidate health and pediatric nurse Felicia Faber (20), whose version of Katy Perry’s “Firework” was not fired and no coach was fired, also left empty-handed, office worker Steff Federer (33), who competed with placebos “Every You Every Me,” and vivacious Colombian sound engineer Paloma Jäger Babativa (28), whose rendition of the Miami Sound Machine hit “Conga” wasn’t entirely convincing.

“The others will regret it!”

On the other hand, things went better for sensitive Balinese singer Doni Wirandana (31), who moved to Germany for love and is now smitten with his three-month-old daughter Imani. All four coaches were no less enthusiastic, but Doni’s heart advised Team Stefanie – she was also the first to sing his version of Louis Armstrong’s classic “What a Wonderful World”.

Primary school teacher Katharina Merker (28), on the other hand, did not have to make a decision: For her “Stowaways” by Johannes Oerding, only Peter Maffay turned up, who was sure: “The other three will regret it! ” All coaches except Rea Garvey (49) could with “Wolke 7” by Max Herre feat. Philipp Poisel inspires the aspiring musical actor from Hamburg Luka Maksim Klais (22). As his mentor he chose Mark Forster (39), who was also chosen by university lecturer Jerome Mitchell (32), who took to the “Voice” stage with “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

In general, things went well for Mark Forster in this episode: he was also chosen by Marlon Falter (18). The blind student, who described himself as ‘rampensau’ and ‘entertainer at times’, burst with confidence, cheekily commenting on Peter Maffay and Rea Garvey’s non buzzers with ‘I’m sorry for you’ and ‘You had your chance, my friend.” He also excitedly announced that he wanted to finally help Mark Forster to his first win on “The Voice.”

tragic fate

However, dazzling book publishing employee Basti Schmidt (27), whose rendition of Eric Carmen’s “All by Myself” wowed all the coaches, could spoil this premiere for him. “To me you are the epitome of a four o’clock buzzer!” flirts in vain with Forster, who wants to clear things up with a simple question: “When you look at me like that, what song do you think of?” When Stephanie Kloß responds, “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, it’s clear how Basti’s journey will continue: she wants to go far in her group.

But also the aforementioned Nadine Pimanov, who performed a quiet version of the O-Zone party hit ‘Dragostea Din Tei’, is a favorite this year. The maturity Stefanie Kloß thought she could hear in the candidate’s voice may have something to do with Nadine’s life story: Shortly after coming of age, her beloved mother died, she herself had become “almost homeless” and had stay with friends

The now 25-year-old cried when she made reference to this dark time. She is even more proud of her beautifully furnished apartment. And her performance also caused a stir: “Very impressive,” praised Stefanie Kloß, “like Angel’s Dust, Engelsstaub, she threw the notes in the air,” said Rea Garvey. Did this poetic comparison make a difference? Nadine, for whom the world now seems happier than a few years ago, chose the cheerful Irishman as her mentor.
